Navigating Spectra

Learn where everything is in the software and how to easily locate clients, sessions, and other records. Check out the power of your home page, the features of the calendar, and see how workflow "works." Discover how all the customizable screens can keep your studio running smoothly and on schedule!

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra/myStratus than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature.
