What's new?

Have you found GhostFind yet?


GhostFind is a simple, quick indexing system for storing useful information such as contact numbers etc. for easy reference (work related or not). For more information on how to use this handy feature, go to \GWData\Ghostcon\User Notes\GhostFind.rtf or give the Help Desk a call.

Look out for the nifty new "alert" icon that's been added for electronic instructions. The icon indicates that a message, other than a new or amended instruction, has been imported. It will also appear if an error has occurred during the export of messages.

The icon indicates that you should view the Matter History to check what messages were imported, or what errors were recorded. Once you have clicked on the Diary tab, the icon will be removed.



Handy Hints
Keep an eye on http://www.ghostconvey.co.za/code/Notices.htm where we will endeavour to keep you updated with useful information on a regular basis. Circulars from the Banks will also be posted here for your reference.

A dialog box will appear containing 2 icons:
- Open selected matter
