Additional WISDM Training Session

Confused about the changes in WISDM. Don’t know where to find information. Want to know how to use “My Projects.” Where is tuition remission information? How to read and interpret information in the project screen header. What information do the various tab options provide? How can custom columns be used and what other tools are available. Just need HELP?
