eData Navigation for View Only Video

The eData Navigation for View Only Users video was developed to assist View Only users when navigating the eData system.  This video presentation explains how to navigate the eData system using short video segments for each of the eData elements, such as classes, groups, pairs, adults, staff, contracts, families and children.  This allows viewers to watch only the sections relevant to their program. This presentation is not a substitute for the eData Introduction data entry training.  The video segments do not cover data entry procedures.
