Take Control of Now Up-to-Date & Contact

The definitive documentation for Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0!

Are you unhappy with the built-in calendar and address book utilities in Mac OS X? Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0 provides a vastly more complete set of features for calendaring and contact management, most notably full sharing of events and contacts across a network. Rather than write an independent book that you’d have to buy to get the most from Now Up-to-Date & Contact, we’ve partnered with Now Software to write the manual for Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0 as a free Take Control ebook (you still have to buy Now Up-to-Date & Contact, of course, but you can also download a free 30-day trial version). If you’re interested in checking out what Now Up-to-Date & Contact can do for your organization, we invite you to download and read the complete manual, written by best-selling ebook author Joe Kissell.

The manual helps you get started with both Now Up-to-Date and Now Contact, create and work with events and contacts, and connect both to server software that enables network sharing of events and contacts. It covers Palm synchronization in detail, and walks you through managing public event and contact servers through Now Server Manager. Throughout the book, tips and sidebars tell you not just how to use Now Up-to-Date & Contact, but the best ways to use the suite. An appendix of keyboard shortcuts and a full glossary round out the manual.

Update Plans

We have no plans to update this book, since Now Up-to-Date & Contact has been replaced by Now X.
