How To Enter Data

Since you can manage multiple collections with NM Collector Software and you can edit the captions for any collection, getting started may seem a little difficult at first. However, if you follow these steps to get started you will quickly understand how it works.

Prerequisite:  Start NM Collector on your system

2. Select a collection type that you want to add an item to. At this point you can add an item to the selected collection type. You can also edit the field captions. Select Collection Type

3. Click the “Insert” button to insert an item into the selected collection.
