    No rush JK. I'll probably just learn to live with it.

    okay! Just got the kit....FINALLY! He dropped it on the porch, knocked and ran....he probably wants to get home to eat, maybe he will be earlier and nicer in the next couple of days so that I can see if he or his wife would like to see a catalog!

    Good luck Rebecca and do take your time. Take the quick start tour for it before you make your calls so you are familiar on what you need to do as a refresher.

    Oh, I already did that...I am a manual reader. My DH always laughs at me because when I get something new, I read the manual from front to back! LOL!

    I figured you already did do the tour but didn't know if you wanted to redo it just to be extra familiar in entering. I really don't think you'll have a problem. I just wish we were on the same time zone! I really don't think I will be up as late as I was last night.

    Did it come with a manual or is it on the program?

    The Quick Start guide is on the main menu when the program opens on the left.

    I'm sure I'll do fine...it just may be a little slower than usual. :D

    So, if I install and play with P3 it will NOT Affect my PP. Just to make sure before I do it.

    And I only have dial up,but am I understanding right that does not matter, I just connect when I want to submit like I do with PP.

    I have a show that I have to submit tomorrow night to stay active ( had awful Dec) and I do not want to mess up anything that I have to figure out between now and then.

    Do I import from PP if I am not going to start using it or do I import later?

    That is probably what I will do. I am also only 1500 away from 15000 career sales, so, I do NOT want to mess with that!

    Take the tour guide on the welcome screen and play around a little. You will find it very user friendly but you do need to explore with it to see where and how it works. You can move the screen around a bit with your mouse to see everything by the way. I played with it for a day by exploring and felt comfortable enough last night to enter the extra orders and payments on my show I closed yesterday and was able to submit without a problem.

    You only need to be online when you first start it initial run and when you submit. To enter and play, you don't need to be online.

    It will not affect your PP. I imported so I could see my information,etc while i was learning. If you play and add dummy information you will need to uninstall it and reinstall the PP3 before you use it for real.

    The show that I submitted on PP3 last night is already being shipped! It should be here on Friday--5 boxes!!!!It'll take up all of my free space in my living room! I hope the host plans on picking it up on her way home from work!

    Hi Danielle!

    I didn't get anything from my Director who is an ED. If you go on CC it has a link to tell you how to install it. Nothing in Weekly Bites saying not to either.

    I played with it, found it easy enough to use and started using it and submitted a show Monday night with it. My show has shipped and will be here on Friday too. No problems on my end at all. In fact I like the prompts it gives you when you are submitting. You can't really forget someone who is entitled to a guest special even with this program.

    I have read here that some people have said not to and many that say it's OK as long as you are comfortable with it to use it.

    I am not a Director so not having Cluster Management doesn't pertain to me.

    Thanks for your concern and input though. What reasons did your upline give you? Anything different than what others have posted? I am curious.

    I would think that if there was a major problem we would have received some form of communication from HO.

    Thanks.

    In the Special Edition CN it tells you to install and get used to it and you can start using it. (I believe that's where I read that). I never heard about waiting until March. They accepted my show order from it.

    I don't think we were supposed to wait. Just play around with it, make some fake orders.... but don't submit. Use PP 16.0 to submit. (Or else you will have shows showing up in one and not the other....it isn't backwards compatible)

    I submitted my first show last night using P3 and it went through fine. It is showing up a "Received" in Shipment Status and on my Individual Performance Tracker.

    I think HO just wants people to know that they cannot transfer new information from P3 to PP so be sure you are ready at this time to switch.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it prompts you along the way so you do not forget anything. I forgot to add the guest special for my host, and it gave me a prompt before I submitted so I was able to go back and fix it! :)

    I am so happy it worked for you Rebecca after all we talked about it. Yes, it did the same on my host's order too--I thought that was awesome! Did you get your confirmation e-mail too? My show shipped and I also got an e-mail this morning that everything shipped too! That's a nice feature on shows that you don't have an e-mail address for. So I got the normal e-mail and the confirmation one!

    Yes! I did get the confirmation email right away (which is GREAT!) and I'm waiting for it to get shipped out so I can get the next email. So far...it is MUCH better than PP, AND when they start updating it with better features, it will be fantastic! What it is lacking now it makes up for in other areas!:)

    hmmm.... the tech person I spoke to yesterday said it was an issue with the server they have for updates and they were going to try to have it fixed by noon (yesterday). It still didn't update when I tried later in the afternoon. Do you happen to have the link that you can email me? I don't particularly feel like spending the evening on the phone with tech support, when I have CCC to make. My email is chefann@dannann.net. THANKS!
