|Clients & Profits X Online User Guide|
Clients & Profits X is now self-updating, automatically installing new feature enhancements, bug fixes, and patches as they are made available -- with a single mouse click.
Unlike previous versions of Clients & Profits which required update installers or software patches, Clients & Profits X uses a web-based update server to download feature enhancements, bug fixes, and patches directly into each copy of Clients & Profits X.
Software updates are available to all Clients & Profits X registered users with current support subscriptions. Updates are not available as stand-alone installers or on CD. An internet connection is required to download software updates.
System managers will be notified via e-mail whenever a software update is released.
Only users with access to Software Update can update their own copy of Clients & Profits X. Access to software update is turned off by default in the Users, Access & Passwords window. Access to software update can be assigned on a per-user basis, giving the system managers better control over how Clients & Profits X is updated. Do note that reorganization of the database is often necessary after installing updates and should not be done across the network.
Since Clients & Profits X is a multi-user application, it's important that everyone always use the same version of the software. Since some system managers prefer to test a new update with a backup copy of the agency's database first, Clients & Profits X doesn't automatically check for software updates. This also helps ensure that everyone in the shop is using the same version.
