Learning how to use a model that is as complicted as the IFs model can take some time, and requires some serious help-related material and support for users going up that learning curve. The IFs Team is dedicated to providing that support to users through a variety of different tools, with more currently under developmenet.
The most thorough overview of the IFs System can be found by accessing the Help System that accompanies the software. If you have downloaded a version of IFs, view the Help System by hitting F1. If you are using the software online, select the Help option at the top of the menu.
The Help System can also be accessed from this page.
While the Help System is a crucial feature of the software, it is by no means the only support available to IFs users. Users might consider signing up for the IFs List-Serve email. This is a public list-serve that allows users to receive IFs updates.
The final option available to support users is the IFs Forums. From here, users can post questions on any IFs related topic and engage in conversation related to further understanding of the model. Please visit us!
