We've added a new form of "news" to our website in the form of a Designer's Diary blog! These articles will focus on tutorials, tips, tricks and other useful information on how to use Realm Works.

The first two entries are live now, go check them out!

Nice! I like this new feature. It is nice to have well-written, nicely laid out instructional material that doesn't require open a file in a PDF reader or MS Word. I'm looking forward to more Designer's Diary posts.

Excellent.

As a suggestion can we get some detailed information about the advanced import options with some test cases of the way we can expect the data to change based on the choices made.

I'm working on this stuff as fast as I can while still getting everything else done. Covering the advanced options is definitely one of the planned subjects, although it might actually end up being multiple articles. Coming up with material that is clear, concise, and not ridiculously technical is proving to be a lot more time-consuming than I first anticipated!

Mate as someone who managed it service desks for many many years and worked daily to improve the knowledge articles.. I really enjoyed the write ups they would have passed our QA checks.

Ridiculously technical is ok if it is detail on the why or how of the process. The more we understand of that stuff the better we know what is and isn't possible.

I have not yet used the export/import feature.

But reading these, you have made a complex undertaking simple and easy.
With a few mouse clicks!

Great work, on both the features and new instructions.

I've always seen that quote attributed to Mark Twain, using in the form of "I would have written a shorter letter, but I didn't have the time."

Time to hit up Google for some answers!
