Attached please find helpful reference PDF documentation. These are the same handouts we provided in our classroom training sessions leading up to the upgrade.

Known Issues & Requests for Enhancement

Defects (bugs) we found during testing are mostly minor and many apply to features most users don't use. See a list of known issues and requests for product enhancement here

Do you use drill through reports? The most significant issue we found is that drill through reports in PDF format don't work correctly. If you use drill through reports, run them to HTML format, which works well.
