You, dear op, Have just entered the expert level of the game. Only the strong survive
That was harsh of her. Although I'm sure you will learn the program's well if you have to use them without help for a week. Think of it as a learning opportunity OP!
This isn't the old days where people were only able to learn things in person. We now have plenty of resources just a few keystrokes away that can aid us with learning various things. If OP has a question on how to do a specific thing, as it seems she has already been at least taught the basics, chances are someone else has had that same question and asked it on some tech forum somewhere.
Ive tried to do that at my job. The problem is,there are so many variations of programs and tasks that could be very close together that it's difficult to find help on the Internet. I've followed the exact instructions for how to make a pivot table on excel and it didn't work. I asked one of my managers and they gave me completely different instructions that did work. And I'm sure OP is dealing with systems more complex than excel lol
Is it custom software or is it something that is just... less common? Because Google is your friend.
Not everything is Googlable (new adjective?). If it is, or there's a readme, then good for OP, but if it isn't something that can be researched, then it can be a shot in the dark. I've run into related scenarios in which people would run in from other departments demanding things that I have never heard of. I wish OP good luck! :D
