Video Tutorials

The following videos are intended to help introduce new indexers to some the more powerful features of SKY Index Professional 8.0 and to some of the less well known features that we think indexers should be aware of. We are just getting started, so additional videos will be added as time passes.

NOTE: The title of each video ends with either (SI8) or (SI7) and indicates the version of SKY Index Professional - version 7 or version 8 - that was used in the making of the video. Most of the SI7 content applies to SI8 and some of the SI8 content also applies to SI7. If you see the word 'only' it means the content of the video applies only to that version of SKY Index.
