In order to interview an MRE employee in HyperCase, you need to click on the red book that is on the small table in the reception area. When you do, you will bring up the MRE Corporate Telephone Directory. From there, click on "Open Directory." Click on any of the employee names that are highlighted in blue. For example, if you click on the employee name "Kathy Blandford" you will bring up a new screen that has a picture of her in the upper left hand corner. To ask her a question, click on a question mark, and her answer will appear opposite her picture. On the bottom of the screen is a black toolbar that displays the words "Back" "Office" and "Observations." "Back" takes you back to the phone directory. Clicking on "Office" brings up a picture of Kathy's office. Click on objects there to learn more. Clicking on "Observations " on the toolbar brings up a brief description of Kathy's outside interests.
