Welcome back to the blog series about our Enact® Free Subscription! In part one of this series—the introduction—InfinityQS VP of Product Management, Eric Weisbrod, laid out the details of the Free Subscription. As mentioned, each new subscriber begins their journey with Enact with the Quick Setup, the subject of our second blog—from Product Analyst Miguel Acuña. In blog three, Eric described the Enact environment included with every Enact subscription. And finally, here in part four, we’ll discuss how customers can feel confident with their first steps into Enact with Guided Learning.
Starting out with any new software can be intimidating. That’s why we created the Quick Setup. By streamlining the process of building your first data collection, we’ve cut the frustration in half. But that’s not enough—we want the Quick Setup to go as smoothly as possible for you. So, we created Guided Learning.

What is Guided Learning?

Enact Guided Learning provides everything you need to get the most out of your Enact subscription. And it’s always just a click away. When you are in the Quick Setup, as you can see in the sample image below, you simply select a link in the instructions at the top of the screen…

…and you’re in Guided Learning! Below is what it looks like when you first access it. Quick navigation tip: Enact Guided Learning is laid out for your convenience. Just scroll down the page to access the four major sections—Four Steps to Quick Setup Success, Enact Basics, Hands-On Exercises, and Account Management.

The Four Steps to Quick Setup Success

The first thing you see when you scroll down into Guided Learning is the Four Steps to Quick Setup Success:
Four Steps to Quick Setup Success 
These steps help guide you through everything you need to know to get up and running with Enact as quickly as possible: short, instructive videos on how to Configure, Collect, Report, and Optimize & Share information in the software. We know you don’t have a lot of time, so when we say short, we mean short. The longest video in this series is less than 3 minutes! When you select Configure, for example, you access the Create a Data Collection video.
Quick Setup - Create a Data Collection 
Concise and clear, this video illustrates how easy it is to set up a data collection in Enact during the Quick Setup process. It really couldn’t be easier.
When you select Collect from the Four Steps to Quick Setup Success, you access the Collecting Your First Data video:
Collecting Your First Data 
This short video presentation explains what you see in Enact when you’re collecting data—things like the data entry screen, viewing alerts and notifications, and accessing charts. You get a feel for just how simple Enact makes the data collection process.
When you select Report from the Four Steps to Quick Setup Success, you access the Enact Preconfigured Dashboards video:
Enact Preconfigured Dashboards 
This short video contains an overview of Enact’s dashboards used for data collection and analysis—the foundation of your Enact deployment. It’s a great way to get a good feel for the software and its flexibility.
When you select Optimize & Share from the Four Steps to Quick Setup Success, you access the Sharing Data Across Your Organization video:
Sharing Data Across Your Organization 
This video discusses sharing the value of Enact with key decision-makers in your company. Anyone with an Enact license in your organization can then access Enact’s valuable information anywhere—from multiple devices. It should be noted that the free subscription only has two licenses; therefore, this video talks a lot about sharing data with those who DON’T have an Enact license. We don’t want you to think you need a license to have access to the valuable information provided by Enact.

The Guided Learning Library of Videos

Scrolling down past the Four Quick Steps brings you into the Guided Learning library of videos: Enact Basics, Hands-On Exercises, and Account Management. This growing collection of information is here to help you to get started with Enact and start reaping the benefits.

Enact Basics

You can see upon first glance at the Enact Basics section of videos that this is where the Four Steps to Quick Setup Success contents live. But, as you can see, there’s more in this collection.
Enact Basics 
In addition to the videos in the Four Steps to Quick Setup Process, Enact Basics contains videos for editing a data collection, further understanding notifications, advanced data collection options, personalizing Enact, and understanding the Enact data model. All useful information for digging deeper into Enact’s powerful information and options.

Hands-On Exercises

Scrolling past Enact Basics, you will see the Hands-On Exercises section of the Guided Learning library. This is a collection of really friendly, super important hands-on exercises you can perform with Enact without changing anything within the software.
Hands-On Exercises 
The hands-on exercises lead you through typical usage scenarios, whether it’s entering data or performing analysis. You’ll learn not only how to perform certain tasks in Enact, but also why you’re performing them. Helpful hints are available along the way, so you’ll never get stuck. You’ll gain an understanding of the power of Enact as well as the confidence to begin applying it to your own data.
Hands-On Dashboard
Sample image from Hands-On Exercises
As you can see from the sample image above, this is a great way to familiarize yourself with the interface without worrying about changing, deleting, or missing anything important in the software itself. We encourage every user to walk through the hands-on exercises as soon as they get a chance.
You can see by scanning the contents in the image above that these videos take you through collecting data, an in-depth look at the analysis dashboard, and a thorough discussion of the summary dashboard.

Account Management

Scrolling past Hands-On Exercises, you will see the Account Management section of the library. This is sort of the “nuts and bolts” of Enact, if you will, including assigning licenses, creating new users, authenticating a workstation, defining & licensing a workstation, and activating and deactivating users.

One Last Bit of Navigation

You may have noticed the Topics menu located at the top of the screen when you first entered Guided Learning.
Topics Menu 
As you can plainly see, this menu is a way to quickly access the three sections of the library we’ve just walked through. Nobody really likes to scroll all that much. It’s kind of tedious. So, we created these handy links to the library sections located further down the screen. Easy access is what Enact is all about!

Online Help

Information about and help with Enact doesn’t end there. Enact has a vast collection of useful information for users—in the Online Help!
Enact Online Help 
The Online Help is easy to access from anywhere in Enact. And it is vast. This system contains everything from the deployment guide to frequently asked questions to our eLearning Center and more. It’s always there, always helpful, and very handy. A great resource for every Enact user.

In Closing

So, that’s Enact Guided Learning! As you can see, it’s a thorough collection of all you’ll need to hit the ground running with your Enact Free Subscription.
