But, sometimes, a quick video is more effective, especially when the result is visual. Also, there are many people who can learn more quickly by watching than reading. I've been spinning up some short videos about PowerShell solutions and cool features of SAPIEN products that are easy to miss in the treasure trove of features.

We just released the second video in our "Check out this feature" series, a series of short videos that focus on features you might have missed. Our first video, Function Builder in SAPIEN PowerShell Studio, demonstrated our awesome automation for function and parameter syntax. Our second video, Rewind in PowerShell Studio: A built-in safety net for your scripts, describes the Rewind and Create Restore Point features, which help you recover to a previous version of a script -- or any PowerShell Studio file -- even if you've saved, or closed and reopened the file multiple times.
