This Quick start guide (QGS) has been set up as a guide to help you start using Katmandoo.
The QSG will work through the processes demonstrating how to add Data and how to configure Katmandoo to your organisation needs.
QSG uses Demonstration data that has been installed in the Katmandoo
files in the “DemoData” folder, (…Katmandoo\DemoData).
(The data in these files are for demonstration purposes only)

Once we have added a new Sub-system we can add the
required data in to the Demo Sub-system so we can setup a
system User Id.
This will enable a user to log into
Katmandoo at start up under their own login name and password and with the appropriate level of security set for that user.
This reqires us to
Add a system user
. We have to add "user data" to be able to add the new user.
The first step in adding a system user is to add the users details, this can

imports of this data.
