Lessons Learned and/or Suggestions for Similar Activities
Creating this document was a lengthy and complex process. The uploaded pdf file is Version 1.1. Although Registry staff have tested and proofed the manual in-house, there wasn't time for a beta test with multiple users. For instance, we did not create a troubleshooting section. Tips for use have been included throughout the document, but there won't be a true troubleshooting and FAQ section until the next release. Contact Registry staff troubleshooting tips that you have discovered while using the Registry.

Any Additional Information About The Project
Please contact the project manager for any edits, updates or changes you feel need to be included in the next version of the Conservation Registry User's Guide.
