With this post, we’re kicking off our new Training Thursday blog series. Once a week, we’ll add a short training video on how to use a particular OroCRM feature and will announce it in our blog and social channels. We like the idea of starting out the series with something grand. Let us introduce OroCRM Quick Start, our new self-led tutorial already available on our website.
With its help it’s now possible to learn OroCRM essentials anywhere and anytime. This interactive step-by-step training educates first-time OroCRM users on how to get started with the application and familiarizes themselves with basic functionalities.
Note: Before you start, consider opening an instance of OroCRM to follow along with the exercises given in the course. This is non-obligatory but might come in handy. Use your personal instance or free demo.
Smart Content, User-Friendly Interface
OroCRM Quick Start is a comprehensive guided course comprised of learning slides, screenshot & recorded simulations, section summaries, and short try-it-yourself exercises with tips enabling you to practice what you’ve just learned. At the end of the training, you can test your knowledge by taking a short quiz (don’t worry, you can skip this but where’s the fun in that!).
Just like our OroCRM product which is highly flexible product, so is our course. Users can either follow the provided course sequence or select preferred sections from the main menu and complete the training at their own pace. The intuitive player buttons allow navigation across the learning slides. You can keep the audio on to listen to the narrator or disable it and simply read through the guidelines.
