Check for Enhancements and Updates
It is important to keep Total Office Manager® up-to-date with the current release version. Doing so ensures you are taking advantage of all the program has to offer.
Aptora Corporation is proud to listen to our customers and take product enhancement suggestions seriously. We understand and freely admit that we couldn’t possibly “think of it all” when designing Total Office Manager. Suggestions made by our customers are perhaps the greatest development tool we have! Of course not every suggestion becomes part of the program, but the good ones sure do!
Thus, new releases of Total Office Manager happen frequently. Some software companies intentionally hold on to minor release enhancements so they can be accompanied by great fanfare. We believe there is no reason to postpone the availability of minor release enhancements, so many times a new release becomes available each week. Major enhancements are indeed kept private because of the extensive nature of the testing process, but minor releases are “out-the-door” and available to our users ASAP.
Checking for enhancements and updates is easy. Here’s how.
From the main menu, click Help | Check for Enhancements and Updates, or
From the keyboard, use the shortcut Ctrl+U, or
From the toolbar, click the Help button drop-down arrow and select “Check for Enhancements and Updates”.
The Web Update form will display whether or not your version of Total Office Manager is current. If an update is available, the “Download” button will be available. Simply click the Download button and follow any instructions.
- It is recommended that the Web Update Reminder function be enabled in preferences, and that the reminder frequency be set at ten days or less. This will help ensure that the most recent release of Total Office Manager is in place and being used advantageously. See the related topic, “Preferences – Web Updates” for more information.
- When the first workstation on a network updates to a new release, the download is placed in a central location where other workstations can access it later without having to re-download it or tie up valuable internet bandwidth.
