Take Command Blog
Take a look at the Take Command blog. We just wrapped up a four part series on the evolution of the Take Command architecture, and the reasoning behind the sometimes controversial recent changes.
Feedback and Suggestions
Every user is given 20 votes, which they can spend on submitting their own new ideas, or voting on other ideas they would like to see implemented. When an idea is accepted or rejected by JP Software, the user gets their vote back. This provides a way for users to prioritize their favorite ideas, without being drowned out by a vocal minority of other users.
The Feedback forum will also match your suggestions against previous suggestions, to reduce the number of duplicate entries. You can discuss and develop suggestions via the comment threads, so that by the time we’re ready to implement an idea it has already been fully thought out.

JP Software has just launched our completely revamped web help (an Internet-based help system at http://jpsoft.com/help/ that is accessed from your browser). The web help contains the same content as the HTML help (tcmd.chm) that is distributed with Take Command, Take Command/LE, and TCC/LE. The next build of Take Command v 13.0 will include the option of using either the web help or the local HTML help.
So if you already have local help, why would you want to use the web help instead? The web help allows us to expand the Take Command help far beyond its current state, including:
- User comments
- Video tutorials on individual topics
- Popups with graphics, text, and hyperlinks
- Sortable tables
- Eye candy (web help is a lot prettier than HTML help)
In this first version, we have implemented user comments (and some eye candy). Each help page has a "Comments(n)" link (where n is the number of comments on that topic) in the upper right and lower right corners.
Users can add comments to any topic in the Take Command help. Comments can be questions, corrections, suggestions, additions, or even screenshots and/or videos. Our goal is to transform the help from a static reference into a dynamic tool that follows the changing needs of our users.
You can optionally register for an account before adding comments. Anyone can enter comments, but anonymous comments are moderated before being added. We also have a spam filter (Akismet), and any comments with embedded links or images will also have to be approved by a moderator.
User comments are "update-proof". When JP Software modifies and reuploads the help, this will not eliminate the comments.

Offer 1 -- As an added inducement, we are allowing current users of Take Command or TCC / 4NT to purchase additional licenses at the upgrade price, including volume discounts. That's right, instead of $99.95 for additional licenses, you can get them for $49.95 or less. So if you want to add some additional licenses, now is the time. For example, if you have 5 licenses and want to add an additional 5, just order 10 upgrades and get them for the volume discount price of $36 per copy.
Offer 2 -- We are also offering a "Friends and Family" $30 discount on new copy prices using discount code "FandF30". The price is only $69.95 after discount. Feel free to forward this email to friends you think might benefit from the power of Take Command.
