  • Hyperlinks and images: the hyperlinks feature is found throughout the database which offers linking to images, documents, spreadsheets, the Internet, audio files, etc. This truly turns your database into the nerve centre of managing a function as literally any file can be linked. Note that if a link is made to an image it can be viewed as a thumbnail, clipped, zoomed, opened in your image editing program ... all from within the database. Also note the files are stored outside the database which means you can link to CDs and/or an image bank on your computer or on a server. This means your database is never cluttered with large image files.

  • Notes: there are a number of areas where you can keep general notes.
  • Reports: reports included are a printed list of an individual function, or all current, and archived functions. These are either with brief details (function name, times, people involved, etc.) or comprehensive (all bookings, payment details, equipment required, etc.). The reports can also be exported to a word processor or spreadsheet – useful if you need to send reports to people, departments, etc.
