Once again, a great group of iTandCoffee Club members attended our Free Friday on November 17th and brought along with them a set of questions that we know so many others will also have.
Here's what we covered:
iTandCoffee Club members who have Plus, Online or Premium membership can access the video of Friday's session, as well as those of all past sessions, on the Club Sessions and Videos page.

'Topic of the Day' sessions
Question and Answer sessions
October's Free Friday for iTandCoffee Club members, held on 13/10/17, was a Question and Answer session where we had some great questions from those who attended. Here's what we covered:
Those of you who are Plus, Premium or Online members of The iTandCoffee Club can see the full video of the session by selecting the button below.

Over the past couple of months, we have working on some exciting changes to The iTandCoffee Club membership system, moving to a different tool for managing our Club memberships.
This new system will allow us to offer 'tiers' of memberships, to suit the varying needs of our membership base.
Some of you are locals and want to take advantage of free sessions and support, as well as our regular tips and handy hint library; while others are not so local to iTandCoffee (or unable to get to iTandCoffee), so would rather just access our range of online services.
To cater for these varying needs, we are introducing different iTandCoffee 'Plans'.
Below is an image that shows the plans we have introduced. (Click/tap on the image to view the web page that has further details about the changes.)
We have an exciting promotion for the next few months!
Can I upgrade and qualify for the iPad prize?
Of course you can!
Any existing iTandCoffee member who would like to enter the draw to win an iPad can upgrade their existing plan at any time to one of the qualifying new plans.
We will then refund any amount you have already paid for your annual membership, based on how many days were left of that subscription, and cancel the old PayPal or Stripe subscription (if applicable).
Don't hesitate to contact us on 1300 885 420 or at email@example.com if you require any assistance with upgrading.
Can I stay on my current subscription level ($30/year)
Original iTandCoffee Club members (currently paying $30 per year), will continue to receive all the benefits of the 'Basic' $49 plan shown in the above image, until the anniversary of your membership.
Original members will be able to attend up the 3 club sessions (e.g. Free Fridays) during 2017, regardless of the anniversary date of their membership.
If the $30/year plan is renewed (via Stripe or PayPal), these original members will retain access to 'members-only' newsletter articles, the Handy Hints library, and a selection of videos and slideshows.
However, 'original' subscriptions will no longer entitle these members to other services and benefits after the anniversary date.
As mentioned above, those who currently subscribe to the $30/year plan can migrate to a different Club plan at any time.
We will contact members around the time of subscription renewal to discuss which plan you would like to utilise going forward and to assist with whatever changes you wish to make.
There's just one thing original members need to do at this stage
We have had to set existing members up afresh in the new membership system, which means we will need these members to do a PASSWORD RESET the first time they sign in to the updatediTandCoffee Club membership system.
You will notice that the login screen for the new membership system is quite different to that you previously saw.
Here is what the new 'login' screen looks like. You will see in appear before you can access any 'members-only' content, but only if you are not already logged in.
Members can just choose Reset password, then enter your email address to receive an email with a link to set up your password. If you like, you can use the same one that was used previously for The iTandCoffee Club.
If you do need any assistance with this, call us on 1300 885 420 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big PLUS of the new membership system
A great thing about the new membership system is that, after you log in, it will take you straight to the page you were looking for. This is something that the other membership system did not do well. I know it was a cause of much frustration for many of you - we were not very satisfied with it either and had tried for a long time (unsuccessfully) to get the provider of the old membership service to address this big shortcoming.
We will be continuing to build on the content that is currently available to Club members, so make sure you keep an eye on the newsletter for 'what's new'.
THANKS TO OUR MEMBERS

If you have set up a subscription with a service provider and have chosen to pay using your PayPal, your subscription will continue until you cancel it. But how do you go about cancelling that subscription?
You will generally find that the 'seller' or service provider associated with the subscription will tell you that you have to cancel it yourself, via your PayPal account.
Here are the instructions from the Paypal support page, for cases where this is applicable.
Log in to your PayPal account.

There are only a couple of places left.

Non-members can attend for a cost of $50 per person.
Or, why not Join the Club for access to great special offers like this, as well as lots of great content and hints.
iOS 9 was released in mid September, and has delivered some exciting new features.
I must say I am loving the additional features offered only by the iPhone 6S. But there are so many that other devices owners will also love.
There's such a long list of features, so the easiest way of presenting them is to offer a 2-hour information session at iTandCoffee in Glen Iris.
This Information Session will be run on Monday 12th October at 10am, in place of the previously planned Dropbox Information Session at that time.
If there is enough demand, I will arrange further sessions.
This session will be HALF PRICE for iTandCoffee Club members, at $25. Non-members are very welcome to attend at a cost of $50.
Click the below link to book. Numbers are strictly limited, so get in early to avoid missing out.
Please note that this information session will be looking at iOS 9 new features only, and will not be a class on existing features of the iPad or iPhone.
Anyone seeking to learn about the key features and functionality of their i-Device/s should consider one of the other classes offered by iTandCoffee, such as

So, let's get together and look at how to solve this password problem once and for all.
Join iTandCoffee for a FREE* 1-hour (approx) session where we will set up and learn to use a great app that allows you to safely store all your passwords and gain easy access to them whenever you need them.

Once again this week, I have been raving about how much I love Dropbox. Twice this week, Dropbox has saved me so much time and aggravation.
I was working on a set of similar documents, so each time I created a new document, I was opening an existing document, and performing a 'Save As' to create a new version.
However, in my rush during the week, I had twice forgotten to perform the 'Save As' and had saved the new document 'over the top of' the old document. So, when I went back to look a couple of the documents, they were not correct!
Never fear! Dropbox to the rescue. I was able to very easily retrieve and restore my 'previous version' of the document!
With the amount of articles I dedicate to Dropbox, it must be time to run a free one-hour information session on it for iTandCoffee Club members. (Non members can attend for $30.)
I have scheduled this for Monday October 12th at 9:30am. If there is enough interest, I will look to book a further session in October.
