Dear AutoCAD User!

AutoCAD Product Design & Usability Team is looking for participants for the study.

We are looking for individual contributors or CAD managers with small number of seats (less than 5- either standalone or multi-seat standalone) with unsatisfying experience using Migration tool to migrate settings from a previous version of AutoCAD.

How the Study will be Conducted?

We are planning research between May 27 and June 2, 2010.
