This manual uses several formatting conventions to present information of special importance.

- Item 1
- Item 2
Procedures that must be followed in a specific order appear in numbered steps:
- Perform this step first.
- Perform this step second.
Specific keyboard keys are depicted in square brackets and are capitalized, for example: [ESC]. If more than one key should be pressed simultaneously, the notation will appear as [KEY1]+[KEY 2], for example [ALT]+[F4].
Interface elements such as document titles, fields, windows, tabs, buttons, commands, options, and icons appear in bold text.
Menus and sub-menus have the notation Option>Sub-option. For example, “Select Reports>Charts” means that you should first open the Reports tab, and then select the Charts option.
Specific commands appear in standard Courier font. Sequences of commands appear in the order in which you should execute them and include horizontal or vertical spaces between commands. Specific text returned by SchoolMessenger Passport appears in bold Courier font.
