New Onboarding Tutorial

For new users, we’ve redone our onboarding to guide your exploration of Axosoft. You’ll be immediately greeted with a video from yours truly – covering some of the basics – followed by a helpful tutorial showing you around the major sections of the application. For current customers, you can check this out by going to Tools/ Help/ In-app tutorials/ Reset Tutorials.
