Yes. Clooz 4 will open database files based on any earlier Clooz version without making any changes to the original Clooz file. A new upgraded copy will be created. However, earlier versions of Clooz will not open Clooz 4 database files.
Clooz 4 has been tested by our user testing group, but it is still new software with many different functions. Like all new software, users should not be surprised if a problem were to occur. Clooz protects the integrity of data already stored in the database in the event of a problem or failure. If a program error does occur, a popup form will appear prompting you to report the issue to Clooz Support. If you see such an error message, please add a description of what you were doing at the time of the error and click the send button to report the issue. We cannot fix issues we don’t know about. You are also encouraged to report any other issues or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is always important users maintain backup copies of their Clooz data files, and the data files of any other programs which Clooz is exporting to. Clooz does have automatic backup capabilities (see the Database Backup and Recovery help topic) which can be used to supplement your regular system backup procedures.
We welcome any feedback from users regarding their experience with Clooz 4. Examples of this include suggestions for additional fields in templates, or requests for new templates. Let us know if features are confusing and need additional training materials. Finally, as mentioned above, inform us of any problems you see.
