Any Other items you may want to add.

If users select what they want to cover then we can do a web meeting to give everyone exactly what they want in the shortest time frame. Effective use of time could include 15 minutes per subject for different groups of users.

Other users may require Intermediate items covered in which you don't want the wrong people wasting their time
if your other staff can take on these skills and share it internally at a later date.

Creative use of permissions for will ensure better workflow and increased output from everyone. If additional integration
is required for other applications then it may help to have someone from your IT team available especially if they have
knowledge of SQL and HTML.

retain as much as possible.
