Microsoft Office user groups at your service

There are plenty of groups for geeks, but what about end users of Microsoft Office tools? Well, it turns out there are lots of groups around where Microsoft Office users network and get help from one another, both online on platforms like LinkedIn and in person. MOUGs (or Microsoft Office User Groups) still exist in some local areas. Check out these resources if you want to hobnob with other astute users and share tips, tricks and solutions.



LinkedIn – Microsoft Office User Group – This is an open group. Anyone can join!

LinkedIn - Office 14 Users or Office 2010 – Dedicated specifically to Office 2010




Microsoft Office Community Forums – A discussion board where users post questions and others answer.

Meetup Groups - Check out your geographic area for “meetups” around office technology. I found several in the Chicago area for SharePoint.



Even more groups are open to you if you pass a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exam. It’s not as hard as you think and is geared for the business user, not the technology professional. Check out Certiport or Microsoft's certification program for more information about becoming certified.

How about comments about MSoft users groups focused on using the courts to get MSoft to listen ?
Ribbons has totally destroyed the usability of MS Office. Changes to the Documents folders between XP, Vista and Win7 has screwed many a MS Office user. The search for files system is worthless.
Computers are supposed to make things easier, not so difficult that you need to take a class or shoot your laptop and become a hermit.
