Disk No: 1752 Disk Title: SwitchBoard PC-SIG Version: S1 Program Title: SwitchBoard Author Version: 1.0 Author Registration: $30.00 Special Requirements: 512K RAM, hard drive recommended. Are you still keeping all of your important phone numbers on scraps of paper and dog-eared business cards in the bottom of the desk drawer or ... somewhere? Then it's time to gather them up and call SWITCHBOARD. SWITCHBOARD will organize your library of telephone numbers, addresses and comments about contacts. Enter as many records as you need. The only limit is the capacity of your disk. Find any phone number in virtually an instant with the Locator function and, if you have a modem, the number can be dialed for you. Print reports using the menus provided and, if you need it, on-line Help is a key-stroke away. Beginners will find that SWITCHBOARD was written for them.

With the locator, you can instantly find the telephone number of any party. SWITCHBOARD will even dial the number for you if you own a modem that is hooked to your computer. Help is available by pressing <F1>. A report can be printed of all parties. You may enter up to 400 character comments. SWITCHBOARD will allow unlimited number of records. You may enter thousands of phone numbers and locate the one you want almost instantly. Customized versions of SWITCHBOARD can be programmed for you for a fee. SWITCHBOARD is a fast program using sophisticated state of the art database and information processing techniques. One of my goals was to include an easy to understand user-interface with menus and windows. Help is available throughout the program by pressing the <F1> key. This program has a short learning curve and is fun to use. You will be up and running in no time. If you have a question first press F1 to activate the help facility. If you are still confused refer to this document. For those that are really stuck in the mud you may contact my by mail for technical assistance. Note: you must be registered to receive technical assistance! SWITCHBOARD was written for the beginner to advanced computer user. It provides a low cost alternative to powerful telephone number management and organization. You don't have to know any programming or be a computer whiz with a PhD. That is not who this program has been written for. It is meant for the computer user who uses the computer as a tool. SWITCHBOARD requires an IBM PC or compatible with at least 512k memory, DOS 2.0 or higher, any monitor, and a hard disk is recommended. A printer is optional. Before using this program, you should be familiar with your computer and DOS. page 6 GETTING STARTED Your program diskette should contain at least the following 4 files: PHONE1.EXE PHONE1.HLP PHONE1.DOC DIAL123.EXE If these files are not on your distribution diskette this program will not operate correctly. Contact your distributor from whom you purchased the program. INSTRUCTIONS 1. install the distribution diskette in floppy drive a and close the door 2. copy all files to the subdirectory you want or onto another floppy disk (eg. COPY A:*.* C:\PHONE) 3. make a backup copy of the original distribution diskette (who ever does?) 4. put in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file the following commands: FILES=40 BUFFERS=40 5. to run, type PHONE1 <enter> That's all there is to it! The rest of this manual is optional reference material. Most of your questions can be answered by the on-line help in the program. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A NICE DAY! page 7 MAIN MENU PHONE............the main part of the program. Come here to enter new numbers, change numbers, dial a number, etc. PRINT REPORT.............to print a report listing all data you entered listed alphabetically by COMPANY or party's name. QUIT..............exit to DOS SELECT YOUR CHOICE AND PRESS <ENTER> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <F1> help. <CTRL-ESCAPE> return to menu or exit the program. page 8 THE PHONE LIST (where you will be if you press PHONE from the main menu) The phone list is a "table" listing COMPANY/PERSON'S NAME and TELEPHONE NUMBER. The entries will be in alphabetical order. Use the cursor keys to go to the name and number you are interested in. To get to a party's name and number quickly I have provided a "Name Locator" just below the title "PHONE LIST". Just type one or more letters of the company/person's name and the program will automatically place the highlight bar on that entry. To add a phone number to the list press <Ins>. The Update Form will appear with the message "Record will be added" appearing below it. Note: if, for example, you want to enter a person not affiliated with a company enter his/her name in the first field "COMPANYNAME". That way it will be listed in the "table". Only the fields COMPANYNAME and TELEPHONE NUMBER are listed in the "table". After you have entered all the fields press <Ctrl Enter> to accept that record. If you decide you have made a mistake and want to cancel, press <Ctrl Escape>. That record WILL NOT BE ADDED. Also, <Escape> will move you back one field as will the up and down cursor keys. If you press <Escape> while at the 1st field you will return to the "table" without any records being added. To delete a phone number, place the highlight bar on the number and press the <Delete> key. You will be asked to confirm the deletion. To view a record press <Enter> while on the number in the "table". To dial a number move the highlight bar to the number you want and press <F5>. Before you can dial a number you must specify which comport your modem is on by pressing <F7>. OVERALL, I HAVE TRIED TO MAKE A VERY COMPLICATED PROGRAM AN EASY AND USEFUL TOOL TO HAVE AROUND THE OFFICE OR HOME. GETTING YOUR FEET WET BY TRYING THE PROGRAM IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN IT.
