Field Track comes in two versions: "Client" and "Professional".
The "Professional" version options are denoted by the term "(Pro)". Any option labelled like this will only be available to "Professional" users.
Why Can't I Trial The "Professional" Version?
You can if you request a demo two week "Professional" licence key. It was decided when developing Field Track that if you had the "Professional" version when you first trial Field Track, you might be confused if you purchased the "Client" version and lost some features that you were using in the trial when they were actually "Professional" features. "Professional" version features are basically reviewed below and this help file details many feature you cannot see in the "Client" version.
Some of the differences in the "Professional" version are:
You can print off your display grids, only "Professional" users can customise their columns, or group the display grids.
All users can customise the display grids and use the grouping system, however only "Professional" users can print off their resulting creations.
"Professional" users have the ability to create/edit reports through the advanced report writer system built into Field Track, well as the ability to save reports to disk in a host of common file formats like MS Excel and PDF. "Professional" users can also create reports using the date limited application report system; useful for invoice printing.
"Chronological" record display is only available to "Professional" users. This is extremely useful at displaying all your records in one screen. You can also sort your records in many different and useful ways. This is a very powerful addition to Field Track and allows you to export your records easily to PDA devices.
