Learning to Use CMD with
While there is an extensive, context-sensitive help system in CMD, and download PDF manuals available, we also have a
number of short, narrated video training segments that can help you learn about many of CMD’s basic functions and concepts.
If you are a visual learner, these training videos can be a great help while you are learning to use CMD.
While these are also in the CMD programs themselves, we’ve placed them here as a convenience and also because the Fully
Hosted CMD’s platform does not allow web access (for security reasons), so the links within CMD on the Fully Hosted platform
do not work. So we have duplicated them here.
As you view them, you might notice some slight changes in the way the screens look from the version of CMD that you are
using. That’s because we are always adding/expanding CMD’s feature set. However, the core functionality or concept we are
trying to teach in a specific video will be applicable even when minor changes are made to a given dialog or function.
To view any of these videos, be sure to enable Flash player in your browser, and have your speakers or headphones turned on.
Here’s a list of training videos currently available:
