Forwarded by moderator on behalf of Gail Crane: ----------------------------------------------- Bryan, I created a directory 'mapicsbooks' on IFS and made it shared with Read access. Then I installed the books on my PC and copied the pdf files and index to the IFS. I kept a sub-directory FILES for all the pdf files. (Embedded image moved to file: pic22735.pcx) Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 is installed on each person's PC . The PC user is given instructions to MAP the drive to 'mapicsbooks' using Windows Explorer. Then open Acrobat Reader and select the 'mapicsbooks' directory and open MAPICSXA.PDF. It is not as fast as having it installed locally, but slow is better than none. So far our people are happy with it.

Gail, We are also on 5.5 and I would like to put our manuals on the IFS, but my only experience with IFS is using it for PTF's. Can you tell me how to get the manuals on the IFS or point me to some reference manuals? Also, how do your users access the manuals once they are in the IFS? Thanks in advance.

I rate them Very Good. I usually find alot of what I need. If not, I do search support ....great improvements on the web for finding info. I feel compared to some other documentation I have seen that MAPICS is superior. Evolved improvements....we are at 5.5 and these manuals are much better than the earlier versions. I still would like to see logic manuals as part of the mapics books rather than thru CAS. We do keep the manuals on-line (installed on IFS) for access by all users. That has been very helpful. The old hard copy books and earlier CD's were only available if the user went to the Library. Overall, MAPICS has done a lot of work on these and like the balance of MAPICS, they are continually improving. Just my opinion. Gail Crane Johanson Manufacturing Corp.

Hi Mapics ML: I was at a meeting this morning at work and one of our bookkeepers who runs the A/P Mapics module made the comment, "I don't understand anything when I look in a Mapics manual." Can you give me your opinion of the Mapics manuals in terms of: 1. How do you rate their general readability and understandability? 2. Do they usually meet your needs when you research a topic in them? 3. How do they compare to manuals of other ERP programs you may seen in your travels? 4. Have the Mapics manuals improved as they evolved thru the enhancements of the program over the years? 5. What other comments would you like to share with the Mapics ML about your experiences using the Mapics manuals? I hope that many of the Mapics ML members will take the time from their busy schedules to share their experiences on this topic.
