Noteworthy Changes:

  • TOTAL Connect delivery simplified

    Significant changes have been made to simplify the way TOTAL Connect delivers your reports. Some plugins must now be started from within your form filling software, but don't worry if you start delivery in TOTAL Connect. We'll guide you in the right direction.
