The Garage Series: More Answers to frequently asked questions and advanced Ninja Tips for Office 365 users

This week’s show is part two in a series answering your frequently asked questions about Office. Jeremy is joined again by Tal Kryzpow to answer questions about why the screen flickers when presenting PowerPoint plus how to use advanced Excel features and more.

Last time, Tal and I kicked off the two-part special series where we took some of your most frequently asked questions about user features in the Office applications for Windows. In the previous show, we spent a lot of time talking about sign-in, roaming settings, themes, Outlook and OneNote search.

This week, we focus on Track Changes in Word, external doc sharing and co-authoring, Lync-to-Skype and Lync Federation, the best way to show PowerPoint in Lync (hint: it’s not desktop screen sharing), and we take a tour of data clean-up and visualization in Excel.

I don’t want to give too much away, so you’ll have to watch the show to see which basic and Ninja-worthy questions we take on. Next time, we hit the road with the Garage Series in Hong Kong as we talk to people using Office 365 and put tools like Optical Character Recognition and real-time translation to the test. We’ll see you then!
