|If you haven’t tried the Options software for yourself yet, there are 2 ways forward.|
|i)||If you already have a copy of Options then use the orange Handbook to work through the Options Tutorial.
This takes less than an hour.
|ii)||If you haven’t got a copy of Options yet, then:|
|either (a)||download a copy from our web-site, and use the PDF to print out the Options Handbook, to do the Options Tutorial,|
|or (b)||ask us for a copy on a CD, with a printed copy of the Handbook, to work through the Tutorial.|
Please note that if you start your old version of Options before 31 December it will give you a reminder message about your licence.
After that date you will have restricted functionality : you will still be able to enter Students and their Choices, but you will not be able to use AutoCreate until you Upgrade to Options 2016 with its extra features.
As always, all your existing data moves seamlessly into the new version.
