The Tasks manager provides direct links that will help you learn to use TPC Desktop. Like Videos on Line and the Learinging Guides.
In addition to listing the surveys you've accessed most recently, this panel provides three survey folders you can use to store and access surveys.
My Surveys - this is your default survey folder. See Survey Files.
Shared Surveys - this is an alternate location, like a network file server, where you can share your TPC surveys with others in your office. See Survey Files.
Sample Surveys - this link gives you direct access to the sample surveys that ship with TPC. You will use this link as you work through the chapters in the learning guide or follow an on-line video. See Sample Surveys.
When you create a survey, you can enter information about the client, job, location and your own survey company. The Tasks manager displays this information, helping you identify this survey when you open it in the future. This is a great way to make sure you have the correct survey.
This same information can also be included as variables in your drawing templates. The variable gets the information from the survey and displays it in the drawing automatically for you. You never have to add a job number or filename to a drawing again.
This panel displays your license information including the current version of your program.
This panel provides links to resources that help you learn how to use TPC.

Traverse PC provides on-line information about TPC Desktop via the internet. You'll need an active internet connection to use these links.
