Hi Rob! Welcome to the forum!
As a new user, I'd highly recommend that make some time in your schedule to not just read over, but actually do, all of the excercises in the learning guide. It's a fantastic primer for the world of Monarch, and will give you a solid foundation for what might be headed your way.
I was fortunate with my first exposure to the software. My new boss (at the time) let me sit and "play" with it for a few days without interruption. That made a huge difference for me.
Anyway, that's enough rambling outta me.
Welcome, again, to this friendly little corner of the 'Net.
