Getting Started with GingerFeet

Congratulations! Your website and CiviCRM are built. You've had your complimentary training sessions. Now what?

If you're like us, you just want to dive in and get your feet wet but that pesky learning curve is still there. Hurrumph! That's why we've created two pithy guides to help you start the process of really learning what you need to succeed: the Drupal Getting Started User Guide and CiviCRM Getting Started User Guide.These two guides are designed to get you zipping along on the main tasks involved with managing your website and CiviCRM.

In addition, we encourage you to search our support forums. By visiting our support forums (don't forget — you'll need to register) you can get your simple-use questions answered quickly and directly from both GingerFeet staff as well as the GingerFeet community at large. Contributing to community is what we're all about here at GingerFeet. When you post your question on the forums you help the GingerFeet community grow. Because if you've got a question, it's likely that someone else does too!

For more in-depth instruction we've compiled a list of external references (below the guides) to help further your education if you're inclined to do some searching on your own, but we also have several tech support packages, offer periodic training webinars and one-on-one training.
