The R365 Setup Assistant is your quick-start tool to get R365 up and running. The Setup Assistant has been designed for simplicity and ease of use. When new customers first log in to R365, they are greeted by the Setup Assistant. This tool will walk you through the key steps to starting your journey with R365.

While it is called the Setup Assistant, it is not just for your initial R365 setup! Administrators can return to the Setup Assistant at any time to create new records and update existing records. As new features and modules are added to R365, new sections and steps will also be added to the Setup Assistant.

Article Topics

Sections, Steps, and Prerequisites

Different setup topics are broken up in to Sections in the Setup Assistant. Within each Section are individual Steps. Some Sections and Steps require that the previous Section or Step be completed as a prerequisite.
