FirstClass Admin Update Versions 9.0 and 9.1 include many, many new features from both a user and admin perspective, such as punch-through calendars and workflow applications. This is a one-day session to demonstrate the new features and how to implement them. You can also ask any and all questions that may have stymied you in your use of FirstClass software.

FirstClass & the Web One of the most powerful, but least understood and utilized, features of FirstClass as a collaboration and communications platform, is its easy and flexible web-publishing system. FirstClass Internet Services makes publication of information to the web so simple anyone can do it. In this one-day workshop Gregg will show you how to publish any calendar to the web (How about a Homework Calendar?) without html or an expensive application or service; how to make announcements or publish any communication in minutes; how to set up FirstClass to publish websites for your teachers the right way (there are at least six reasons not to use Personal Home Pages for this); and how to manage multiple sites on one FirstClass Server. You'll learn how to
transform the way your organization communicates to the larger community, guaranteed ... $250. per participant
FirstClass Application Development Training This is an introduction to workflow tools. The group will build and deploy a Field Trip Request application that will take the process through a teacher's request (filling out a form) through several stages of review and approval, to scheduling. If your organization is not a school, the process will be sure to resemble many workflow processes. We will learn how to use Designer to build custom FirstClass forms with advanced workflow properties. We will build FirstClass Application Rules to manage the workflow process, including Custom Columns for data display. The workflow built during the workshop will be functional, but not necessarily a polished work product, and will be intended as a place to get started with FirstClass Workflow
Development. Video introduction to Workflow. Prerequisite: Experience with Designer for building forms, and some experience with administering FirstClass, so we don't have to cover basic concepts. $250. per participant
