Hi Simon

 

Glad to have you on the Forum

 

There are lots of paces you can look for help but unfortunately there is probably not a single reference source that will give you all you need!

 

My suggestions are as folows (in chronological order)

 

  • Look at some formalised training
    • Direct from Open GI - They do a lot of courses and cover all the basic information you will need as well as further "Advanced" options once you are OK with the day to day proceses and tasks
    • Training material is pretty good IMHO and will cover process, choices and reasons for doing certain things in a particular way

    [*]On-Line reference manuals

    • Open GI publish their manual on-line. It is more of a Reference guide rather than a What or Why guide but is a good start for the basic information. You can register with the Open GI support site here and get access to the On-Line Guides as well as lots of other useful information such as Product Versions, release dates and system notices etc

    [*]Peer Group

    • Clearly in Towergate you will have access to lots of other Open GI application developers and their experiences will be invaluable and probably more tuned to your business needs.

    [*]Suuport Desk

    • The Open GI support centre offer some help and advice to all new users. Their contact details can be found on the support site link above

    [*]Open GI User Group

    • If you are a member of the Open GI User Group then you will have access to other User Group members. Someone somewhere may have had similar questions and hopefully now have the right answers
    • As a Full Member, you will also be able to access the whole of the Forum site and again, there will be lots of information available to help you understand how Open GI applications work and how best used

Well that should keep you busy for a while.

 

If you need any more information on where to go for more help, then please let us know. I'm sure our other Forum users will also have some good pointers and hopefully they will be posted here

 

Good luck and hope all goes well!

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
