Coglink Features

  

Coglink has several advanced features that can be added to the "basic" program at anytime.  The base system is designed to be as simple as possible, consisting of only the email partners, a send, and a quit button.  However, we realize that some people may need more advanced features to have an enjoyable experience.  Or may find that as you become familiar with Coglink that you want to try out new features and abilities.

 

You can call or email the Coglink to ask for any one of the following features to be added or removed from your program.  More information about the features is in your Coglink manual or you can ask us for more information over the phone or through email.
