Please note: Historian was formerly branded as Memory Manager and most of our earlier offerings were created using Memory Manager 4.0. These still apply to Historian. Historian has many newer features not included in MM4.0 and we encourage all MM4.0 users to upgrade if you have not already done so. If you are still using MM3.0 we have included instructions on converting to Historian, but there is no specific training for MM3.0.
