Upgrading from Martial Arts Organizer 4 to the Studio Organizer 7

 

REGISTERED USERS ONLY

 

Upgrading from Martial Arts Organizer 4 to the Studio Organizer 7 is a multi-step process. Users of the Studio Organizer 5 and 6 can upgrade directly to the Studio Organizer 7, but Martial Arts Organizer 4 is so old, upgrading to the Studio  Organizer will require some extra steps. You'll first upgrade to the Studio Organizer 5, then upgrade to the Studio Organizer 7.

Since this process is a bit technical and time consuming, if you are not 100% comfortable following these instructions, please ask an intermediate to expert level computer user to sit with you at your computer and assist you with these instructions. This will save you quite a bit of time and frustration, especially if computers make you a little nervous. Get your computer guru onboard right from the start!

IMPORTANT!

These instructions include a download link, password information and instructions for creating your Registration Code. Please read these instructions from start to finish.

Version 7 will be in Free Trial mode until you create your Registration Code as described in step 21 in the Upgrading from Version 5 instructions.

You can have Martial Arts Organizer4, the Studio Organizer 5, and the Studio Organizer 7 installed on the same computer. The files are unique, and no data is transferred until you follow the steps below. Feel free to experiment with Version 7, but continue to use Version 4 for real world use. When you're ready to go live with Version 7 you can transfer your data again by repeating these instructions.

You'll need to know how to copy and paste files, create a folder, and move a folder in order to complete these instructions. If you're not comfortable performing these steps, please ask a knowledgeable computer person to sit with you and provide hands on training.

Your original data files will remain 100% intact and unchanged when you follow these instructions.

 

WHAT'S NOT TRANSFERRED?

Please print any Student ID cards, bar code labels or address labels you have waiting to be printed in Version 4. Due to significant changes, these items are not transferred to the new version.

 

ATTENDANCE RECORDING

The Studio Organizer 7 runs best of i5 or higher processors, so older computers with a lot of data attendance will take longer to process checkins using the automated attendance recording Wizards.

The solution is to export old data to an archive (that can be restored at any time), then delete the old attendance records. Use the Export Attendance Wizard on the Wizards -> Attendance screen to do this. Or, you can upgrade your computer to an i5 or faster processor.

If you would like to keep all of your attendance data, you can pre-load the check in greeting. Displaying the attendance greeting is where the biggest slow down occurs. Please read “Pre Load Attendance Greetings” in the built in Help under the Attendance category.

 

Perform these instructions only on the Primary computer that will be used to run the software. You will create a Registration Code that will be tied to this computer.

If you have a previous version of the Studio Organizer 7 installed on your computer, please DELETE it before continuing.

 

Network Users
This upgrade should be installed on your server only. After it's complete, follow the Networking Instructions to configure your network and install the necessary software on your guest computers. ALL guest computers will require FileMaker Pro 13 software.
