Gina Welcome. Please go to NOTES and read them all. They cover our policies, our territory, and the software. We do have a BEGINNERS group, which you may wish to join. The opening page has a lot of useful information. Look under the little avatars of our members of that group. There are 4 pages there full of information, and some tutorials.
