Want to be a Shotgun power user? Whether you're just starting your first Shotgun project or you've been using it for a while now, our new training series will help you hone your skills - so you can run projects as smoothly (and efficiently) as possible.


This new series goes beyond the basics. Through real-life scenarios, learn best practices for everything from project creation to full-on project tracking - with an emphasis on advanced scheduling and tracking.
