  1. The Support Center is Your Friend.
    When you’re first starting out, it’s important to ask questions but it’s just as important to know where to find answers. The Field2Base Support Center is our documentation repository, housing over 200 documents dedicated to explaining Field2Base products and services. We always recommend new users check this out. It’s a great starting point as well as a valuable long-term resource. You can access the Support Center at:

  3. Pay Attention to Our Official Communications!
    In an age filled with spam and advertising, it’s no wonder people tend to block out most communications from service providers. However, you should know that when Field2Base sends out product announcements to identified Administrators, they are usually to relay critical information such as release information, maintenance windows, critical announcements. We won’t send you promotional materials or advertisements. All notifications we send out are aimed at helping you stay informed as a Field2Base Administrator. With that said, please make sure your email settings allow all communications from our domain,, to stay as up to date as possible.
  4. The Best Way to Learn Our Products is by Doing.
