Free Reports Will Help Professionals Advance Their Microsoft Office Skills
Falls Church, Va. — Many busy professionals spend a significant part of their day using Microsoft Office. However, sometimes learning these applications can become frustrating and time-consuming. Now two free reports are available to teach you all of the skills and strategies you need to speed through your current workload and become an expert at Excel and Outlook.
Business Management Daily’s free special reports, Microsoft Excel Help: Excel Tips for Every Skill Level and Microsoft Email: Outlook Tips and Training will help professionals advance their office technology skills and increase their productivity in the workplace. They will learn the valuable tips and tricks that the pros use to optimize their time and their workbooks. Both reports are presented by Microsoft Certified Trainer Melissa P. Esquibel, who is a writer for Office Technology Today and a Business Management Daily blogger.
With Microsoft Excel Help: Excel Tips for Every Skill Level, you will learn:
- Excel Help Tip #1. Keyboard shortcuts: why breaking up with your mouse might be a good thing to do.
- Excel Help Tip #2. How to wrangle worksheets without frustration.
- Excel Help Tip #3. Ways to type less and get more done with AutoFill, AutoCorrect and Custom Lists.
- Excel Help Tip #4. How to repeat success every time using Templates.
- Excel Help Tip #5. Ways to troubleshoot and dissect formulas to understand what's really going on.
“With this Microsoft Excel help summary,” Esquibel says, “you can hone your skills, boost productivity and advance your career—no matter which version of Excel you use or your level of experience.”
- The road map to Outlook. This section discusses shortcuts and tips for moving around in Outlook quickly and smoothly.
- Finding and using keyboard shortcuts. Outlook places many of these shortcuts in one handy-to-reference place. Esquibel shows you where.
- The amazing notes feature. Most of us don’t have memories that will sustain a day full of information and activity and still remember that great idea we had first thing this morning when we got into the office. Rather than grab a sticky note, use Outlook Notes. When it’s not hard to record our random thoughts and great ideas, we’re more likely to do it!
- Email as your personal assistant. The most common use for Outlook, of course, is email. Yet few of us know that Outlook can go beyond just being a giant inbox to collect email. It can actually act as a personal assistant to us by sorting and labeling email before we even see it!
“Clearly, Outlook is for more than managing email and appointments,” says Business Management Daily's Senior Web Editor Elizabeth Hall. “Use it to organize your entire workflow. And learn shortcuts! You will improve both your speed and accuracy in Outlook by learning to use the shortcuts rather than using the mouse all the time.”
