EZ Address Book Software - Important Things To Know
Press F1 on any screen in the program for screen specific help (Fn + F1 on some keyboards). Select Frequently Asked Questions from the Help Menu for answers to many of your questions. For more insight into the program including how to print labels, run the Demos on our website at www.ElwoodSoftware.com.
EXAMPLE of how to add a family using the Group Name:
First Name: Bob (optional)
Last Name: Smith (optional)
Group Name: Mr. and Mrs. Bob Smith
Other Names: Add each person in the family.
For proper sorting check 'Use First and Last Name for Sorting Only' so "Mr. and Mrs. Bob Smith" will NOT be sorted by M ("Mr.") throughout the program. The First Name and Last Name will NOT appear in the Printable Address Book, Phone Book, or on labels. The Group Name can also be used for a business, organization, or other group.
BACK UP YOUR DATABASE OFTEN by selecting Back Up Database from the File Menu or pressing F5. Backing up to a flash drive and restoring from a flash drive is easy. Check out www.DropBox.com for free offsite backup. If you have more than one database, each one must be backed up separately. Should you experience a hard drive crash, that backup will be very valuable to you. BACK UP YOUR DATABASE!
Select Options from the Tools Menu to choose the screen and report colors, sort order (first or last name), startup category, default country, phone number format, birthday/anniversary reminder day range, name formatting options for labels, and other important program defaults. You can also rename the Phone, Cell Phone, Work Phone, and Work Place fields in Options. Check out your options!
On the EZ Address Book screen place your cursor over the displayed name on the right side to show the date it was added or last updated. Click the "+" or "-" button at the top right to change the height. Enter one or more letters in the Find text box to quickly find a name in the address book or use the search function. If reminders have been added, click on an underlined date on the calendar to display them.
Select Open Database from the File Menu to add a database. You could use one for home and one for business. Each database must be backed up separately. Databases cannot be merged so consider using categories instead of multiple databases. Each database must be backed up separately. Select Delete Database Records from the Tools Menu to delete the sample data in the program.
Consider adding EZ Home and Office to your Startup Folder to take advantage of the program's reminders functions when you start your computer. See Windows Help for how to do it.
EZ Home and Office comes with an unconditional 60 Day Money-Back Guarantee.
MOVING EZ TO ANOTHER COMPUTER OR KEEPING COMPUTERS IN SYNC
To move EZ to another computer or to keep computers in sync, EZ must be installed on both computers. Use the Back Up Database function (not the Export function) on the EZ File Menu of Computer1 to copy the database to a Flash Drive. Then use the Restore Database function (not the Import Function) on the EZ File Menu of Computer2 to copy the database from the Flash Drive. ALL INFORMATION will be REPLACED (not merged) on Computer2. DATABASES MUST HAVE THE SAME NAME so you might need to add an empty database on Computer2 before restoring. If you have more than one database, each one must be backed up separately and restored separately. You could install Dropbox (FREE at www.Dropbox.com) on both computers and then you wouldn't need a Flash Drive plus you would have offsite backup.
Instead of using the Restore Database function you could manually move the database from and to c:\Elwood Software\EZ Home and Office\Data. EZHO.mdb is the database that comes with EZ and cannot be renamed. Any number of other Databases can be added (*.mdb). The database can only be opened by EZ because the database is proprietary and password protected.
Pictures must be moved separately. Select Back Up Pictures on the EZ File Menu and back up to a Flash Drive. Then manually move or copy those pictures to c:\Elwood Software\EZ Home and Office\Pictures on Computer2. Email Lists, Graphics, and Recipe Pictures must also be moved manually. Each have their own folders under c:\Elwood Software\EZ Home and Office.
HOW TO PRINT RETURN ADDRESS LABELS
Select Labels and Envelopes from the Features Menu. Click the Return Address button and add or select a return address. Click the Duplicate button for the number of labels you need. Click Continue to Preview Screen and select either 8167 or 8195 return address labels. On the Labels Preview Screen you can also add a return address to the 8163/8164 labels and on envelopes by clicking the Custom button. Click the Duplicate button to duplicate the label in the first position. Click the Skip button to skip used label positions on the labels sheet.
Exporting Reports and Sharing on Other computers and Smart Devices
Click Export Report from the File Menu to export any printable report. There are many export formats including the Adobe Acrobat Format (PDF). We recommend the PDF format. If you install Dropbox on your computers and smart devices (iPhone, iPad, NOOK, etc.), you could export a PDF report file to your Dropbox folder and the report will immediately be available to your other computers and smart devices. Dropbox is easy to use and it's FREE. You can find more information about Dropbox at www.Dropbox.com.
