240702 - Training Support on Contacts and Writing a Letter
240704 - Gary wanted to add a contact to the Aerospace company contact record today, so he
240705 - could receive an email from a colleage in the next cubicle.
240707 - ..
240708 - He has worked with contacts, but not lately and so we went through an
240709 - exercise together on the phone.
240711 - ..
240712 - Initially, I forgot that Gary has my SDS records and so he already has
240713 - a contact record for Aerospace company with his name. As a result of overlooking
240714 - this history, we started by creatig a new Contact record for Aerospace company
240715 - and adding his name and the name of another person.
240717 - ..
240718 - After this exercise, we did a list for Aerospace company and found there were two
240719 - of them in Gary's records. I then realized what was up. We deleted
240720 - teh new recod just complete. We opened the existing contact record
240721 - for Aerospace company and added the name of Gary's colleague in the next cubicle.
240723 - ..
240724 - While we were at it, we entered a Department name and symbol for the
240725 - doc log.
240727 - ..
240728 - We then opened an SDS record. Gary found a prior record on the
240729 - subject of the new email he received, and used that record to make a
240730 - new Scheduled task to received the letter from his colleague, Malcolm.
240731 - He converted the Schedule task into a Diary record, and opened the
240732 - record.
240734 - ..
240735 - Gary advised that while we talked, he also added a new subject for
240736 - the letter he received today from Malcolm.
240738 - ..
240739 - He moved the cursor to a blank line and pressed F6 a few times to
240740 - make some blank lines.
240742 - ..
240743 - He then typed....
240745 - Received
240747 - ..
240748 - With the cursor at the end of the work "Received," he pressed F1 F5 to
240749 - initiative the Doc Log format for received documents. Since the first
240750 - format is for Documents Received Today, this ended this step, so he
240751 - pressed ESC (or F1) to return to the primary profile level 1.
240753 - ..
240754 - Gary pressed Shift F3 to jump the cursor back to the end of the word
240755 - Received, which is his starting postion in the narrative field. He
240756 - scrolled the record and moved the cursor the line
240758 - [On 030319 Gary submitted a list of colleagues at Aerospace company to enter
240759 - into the Aerospace company contact list. ref SDS 42 599I
Transferring Records None Have Been Received So Far Indicat Problem
Hard Disk Not Notebook Computer Being Used to Transfer Records Betwee

260402 - Transferring Records between Home and Office
260404 - Follow up ref SDS 41 865L.
260406 - Gary indicated that he has not transferred his SDS records from the
260407 - office to his home computer. He does not have a notebook computer,
260408 - but plans to use a hard drive of some kind to download from his office
260409 - computer, and then transfer from the protable hard drive to his home
260410 - computer, which should work fine using our standard transfer
260411 - protocols. Since this has not been done so far over the past month
260412 - or so since he started, this means SDS records on the office computer
260413 - are out of sync with this home computer.
260415 - ..
260416 - SDS has not been deployed in this manner.
260418 - ..
260419 - Since SDS augments intelligence to improve the ability to think,
260420 - remember and communicate, and since thinking, remembering and
260421 - communicating is a constant process in the mind everywhere, a lot of
260422 - thinking and remembering about work occurs at home. Therefore the
260423 - body of records that aids thinking needs to be at hand for capturing
260424 - and refining knowledge, and for planning and doing work, when time
260425 - permits. This does not require becoming a "slave" to SDS, but rather
260426 - maximizing opportunity for benefiting from the record, whenever time
260427 - and inclination line up.
260429 - [On 030319 Gary reports procedures are been developed and he now
260430 - has his home and office computers in sync. ref SDS 42 0245
