   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 1 OVERVIEW
This video contains clickable links to the entire series so you can select the chapter you want to cover. We do suggest that you play through the entire series in order at least once to understand the process and how the NextGen2 platform works.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 2 CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT
Chapter 2 covers the way NextGen2 accounts work for both subscribing practices and individual users. It then explains the steps to create your free personal account.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 3 ASSOCIATE YOUR ACCOUNT
Every personal user account must be associated with a practice that holds a Masterspec NextGen2 subscription. Chapter 3 explains how this works.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 4 THE NEXTGEN2 HOMEPAGE
Chapter 4 covers the NextGen2 home page and explains the basic layout and functions.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 5 PROJECT WORKSPACE
Chapter 5 looks at the project workspace and explains the four main panels and the function of each.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 6 RE-SIZING THE SCREEN
Being web-based, NextGen2 can take advantage of the functionality of modern browsers and can re-configure its layout based on your screen size and settings. Chapter 6 shows how this works.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 7 STARTING A PROJECT OR SPECIFICATION
In Nextgen2 your specifications sit inside a 'Project' - this allows more than one specification to be assigned to that job. Chapter 7 looks at creating both a Project and a Specification.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 8 THE SPECIFICATION WORKSPACE
In Chapter 8 we look at the basic layout of the specification workspace and the functionality available in the specification.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 9 ADDING TO THE SPECIFICATION
In NextGen2 you build your specification by adding pre-written worksections and editing them to suit your project design. Chapter 9 shows how to add a worksection to your specification.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 10 RUNNING THE Q&As
Ideally when adding a worksection to your specification you only want to include information relevant to your design. Masterspec NextGen2's intuitive Q&A tool pre-edits your worksection to include only the data you need. This can vastly reduce the size and complexity of your specification.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 11 THE WORKSECTION TASK BAR

While you are in a worksection there are a number of common tasks easily performed via the Worksection Taskbar. Chapter 11 explains these functions.



   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 12 EDITING A CLAUSE
In Masterspec NextGen2 you'll do most of your work in Edit Mode. Chapter 12 takes you through the functions available to edit your worksection.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 13 ADDING & CLONING CLAUSES
Often you'll find it necessary to include multiple clauses that are similar in structure and content. Chapter 13 shows you the simple steps available to achieve this quickly and efficiently.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 14 THE CLAUSE TOOLBAR
When editing worksections the NextGen2 platform provides a toolbar to help you work accurately, quickly and efficiently. Chapter 14 covers the toolbar functions and processes.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 15 UPDATING WORKSECTIONS
It's vital that each specification quote the correct and up to date Code, Standards, industry Codes of Practice and Manufacturer product details. Masterspec keep all worksections up to date and Chapter 15 shows how the system automatically warns you when something has changed in one of your sections.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 16 THE UPDATE MANAGER
Updating your worksections has never been easier with NextGen2. In Chapter 16 we show NextGen2's easy navigation to any changes and the single-click tools to accept or reject the change according to your needs.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 17 ATTACHING SUPPLEMENTARY DOCUMENTATION
NextGen2 allows you to easily attach relevant documentation in either a specification index (as part of the contract) or in a Manufacturers' Information to be attached separately. Chapter 17 walks you through the process.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 18 SETTING SECTIONS & SPECIFICATION TO COMPLETE
Before you output your work you must set each worksection and the specification to Complete. Chapter 18 explains the steps involved.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 19 OUTPUTTING YOUR SPECIFICATION
There are many options to output all or part of your specification in different formats and with different cover sheets. Chapter 19 explains the steps and your choices.

   NEXTGEN2 CHAPTER 20 NEXT STEPS
Chapter 20 again provides links to every video and the series, and further links to more information for the Masterspec NextGen2 user.
