Looking forward to it! Quite frankly your invitation alone is another fine example as to how flexible and extensive MS Office 2010 can be. I mean; you guys are in a totally different timezone than I am. Now, odd times are (usually) no problem for me but you always need to calculate what your time exactly means in my timezone.
SO I click the link (calendar reminder), I tell Outlook to copy it to my agenda as well and guess what? I don't get it placed on /your/ time; no, I get the item placed on /my/ time. The event on 13th of March begins at 17:15 my time. When I open it I see that the original time is 9:15 UTC-8 (your time). That's what I call flexiblity!
Ok, suggestions.. Now, I know you guys are probably aiming at beginning / low level stuff to appeal to as many people as possible but still, I have 3 suggestions:
Excel: "Import pasting". This allows you to paste & format data which sits on your clipboard. For example, say you copied a table of numbers from notepad and you want to make a table (or more). You can normal paste this into Excel but then you need to split it out yourself. If you use "import pasting" (import wizard which sits under the big "paste" button in the Start tab) you can tell Excel to pick up the space as a delimiter. Thus your numbers end up in separate cells. Many people in my surrounding didn't know about this one. Heck; this is a key feature which seperates Excel from "other free alternatives" (at the time of writing).
Outlook: Quick steps (I think that's what its called). Allows you to chain several actions which can then be performed on a single message. /Ideal/ if you need to quickly perform several actions on a message while you want to rule out making mistakes.
OneNote with Outlook (perhaps this is too advanced, but I'm mentioning it anyway): If you use both OneNote /and/ Outlook then Outlook features also find their way into OneNote. As such you can quickly setup a reminder for a "quick note" (as I tend to call it; the stuff you get when you press Win-N) which will then find itself into Outlook. Considering that Outlook usually remains longer active than OneNote its the (IMO) ideal option to get reminders about made notes.
I wrote a small entry about this on TechNet, maybe it helps you guys to see what I mean. See here:
And that's what I can come up with, hope it may turn out to be helpful for you guys.
And good luck with the webinair, as said; looking forward to it :-)
Thanks for the ideas, Shel. Quick Steps seems a logical choice, and I'm sure we can tackle more complicated things once we get our rhythm down.
Hi, Doug! I just joined & have a suggestion for an upcoming webinar topic..."Using Infopath 2010 with Access 2010 to collect data from remote users". Thanks!
I think Quick Steps would be a great start too. I find that many users who upgrade from older versions of Outlook continue to use Outlook the old way... without realising the power of some of the newer features.
I use Quick Steps for quickly forwarding emails to my team. It saves a few minutes of my time every day.

Hi, are you conducting webinars beyond June?
srudolph: That's the plan at this time...
I am excited to find that you have webinars and plan to start attending. I would like to see classes on Movie Maker and on Formulas in Excel. Thanks.
Formulas may be good webinar, we'll put that one into the idea bin for Office Webinars. Thanks. We are going to stick with Office products, so Movie Maker is out. The help page is at: windows.microsoft.com/.../movie-maker-get-started.
Journal use as a notebook with multiple subjects for recording notes and idea's to keep track of to refer to at a later date.
Liked your PowerPoint Presentation View session this morning. Highly recommend you do a Slicers (Excel 2010) session. I work with a lot of folks who are power Excel spreadsheet creators (I am not one, but I am a frequent consumer of other people's spreadsheet creations). Slicers are the way that spreadsheet builders can make data from their hard work easy to consume by others (as well as themselves).
I had one Excel power user say to me just a couple of weeks ago, "Slicers are the best innovation to come out of Microsoft in 10 years".
Thanks, Joe: I'll put that suggestion in the hopper for the Office 15-Minute Webianrs. Seems a good subject for the length of the webinar.
I was able to attend last weeks live webinar and appreciate you made the all of them accessible for reference. I also like your delivery. Quite entertaining and at the same time very informative. I too would like to see a webinar on formulas. BTW I am starting to use OneNote and find it very useful. I just recently recorded a couple of interviews and then on the same page transcribed. Thanks!
Great to hear, thanks for the comment about Office 15-Minute Webinars.
