Recommendations when trying the product

I recommend following Jane’s tutorial a few times. At least this is what helped me the most.
Based on ASUG webcasts I have attended, there is a new release every 2 weeks (and you don’t have to patch it yourself) so hopefully there will be a fast turn around on suggestions.

I am also looking forward to trying it on a mobile device.
