New PanelView Plus course in development: Ultimate PVP™ – while in development this course is free with the purchase of PVP Basics™ +

Welcome to my new PanelView Plus Online Course, Ultimate PVP™.

As this course is currently in development, the only way to enroll in it today is to get it for free with the purchase of my existing PanelView Plus course, PVP Basics+™.

The reason for this is simple: During the development of my new “Ultimate” courses, I won't necessarily release new lessons in sequential order.

Why? Over the last few years my students have been asking great questions, questions that I wanted to release new lessons on. But not all of those questions are on subjects that would fit into my existing curriculum.

So instead of trying to shoehorn new, unrelated lessons into my existing curriculum, I decided launch my a new series of “Ultimate” courses in which I'll share as much knowledge as possible with students as often as possible, without having to worry about trying to fit every lesson into an existing curriculum.

And as part of this plan, I'm not going to limit myself to releasing lessons in chronological order (from basic to more complex,) but instead I want to have the freedom to jump around subject wise and release new lessons as existing students ask questions in my current courses.

This strategy will sometimes result in new advanced lessons being released before many new basic lessons as published, which is why I think it's important that while my “Ultimate” courses are under development all new students have a chance to go through my current courses which they can later supplement with whatever “Ultimate” lessons are released at that time.

Now at some point in the future I do expect my new “Ultimate” courses will be complete enough to be sold standalone, and at the point they'll be sold to new students separately from my existing courses.

But between now and then ALL existing and new students will get my “Ultimate” courses free of charge when they buy my existing course on the same topic.

Now since this course is a work in progress, please don't hesitate to send me your feedback as well as check back here over the coming months to take the new lessons I add each week.

    I have a PanelView Plus 1000 and I wanted to know how to add a pop-up where the operator has to choose between 5 choices in order to be able to change the RPM speed!

    Thanks for the feedback Will!

    Have you tried using an On-Top display with a Control List Selector, a couple of Arrows and Enter button?

    That would be my first attempt.

    Hope this helps, and thanks again for the suggestion,
