To begin using the Web App, you need to create at least one club year that includes the dates your clubs will be meeting. 

For existing AWdb customers using the Legacy Database, we can migrate your data to the Cloud Database. To begin a new club year, follow the instructions in the Setup a New Club Year How-to Guide. [Note: although all of the data is migrated, the Web App does not currently have all of the functionality of the Legacy Database's app, so some data will be hidden. We have ported most of the functionality to the Cloud Database's Windows App, which accesses the same database as the Web App and provides familiar access to grid capabilities and formal reports.]

For new customers, or those who don't care to migrate existing data, follow the instructions in the Setup a Brand New Database How-to Guide. Once the database is set up, the Windows App may also be used to access features not yet available using the Web App.

Once the club year has been created, we recommend working through the remaining Getting Started articles to learn the basics of using the Web App. There are also training videos available, starting with the General Info video, which provides an overview. For help becoming familiar with the Windows App, refer to the Online Help.
