QuickBooks Coach? New for 2008 as well is QuickBooks Coach. What is QuickBooks Coach?
- Quick Access to Tutorials
- New Coach Tips highlight key workflows to help users figure out where to start and how to map their business to QuickBooks (I’m including several screenshots for examples of this.)
I’m also adding this, perhaps it’s not exactly part of the Coach add-on for 2008 but an improvement for 2008 nontheless.
- Relevant help screen – when you hit help before, you went to the general help screen and had to search your way through until you found what you need. Now if you are in an invoice or a receive payments screen, etc. and hit help, QuickBooks recognizes where you’re at and figures that you want help with what you are working on right then (no brainer, huh?) – see screenshot below
- Users don’t have to struggle with window management – Now when you hit help – the help screen docs itself to the right hand side of your screen and resizes your QuickBooks program so you don’t have to toggle between screens between instructions and QuickBooks program.
