Lots of Office 365 news today. One of the major benefits of using Office 365 is the constant updates and new features that are being rolled out. Read below to find out about the latest features and see if you can take advantage of them to be more productive.

Office 365 News – Updates and New features

Office 2016 for PC.

Jethro-Facebook-Office-365-Productivity

We have already seen the Office 2016 for Mac rolled out earlier this year – I trust all our Mac users are using it now. Office 2016 for PC has just been released and will progressively be rolled out to all users. If you want it faster, you can go and install it now. Login to http://login.microsoftonline.com and click the gear icon and go to your Office 365 Settings from where you can download an install your software.

As a further reminder Mainstream support for Office 2010 ends 13 October 2015. You should no longer have any users left using Office 2010 (or earlier).

Skype for Business on iOS

Beginning October 7, 2015, the Lync 2013 app on iOS devices will get updated and renamed to Skype for Business. With the new app, Microsoft is bringing the simplicity and familiarity of Skype together with the enterprise quality of Lync. The Lync 2013 app on iPhone will be replaced with Skype for Business, whereas iPad users will have to manually download the new app from the Store. The new app will run on all iOS 8 and higher versions.

OneDrive for Business

On 30 September Microsoft released a preview version of the sync tool for One Drive for business. The new client removes the previous limitation of 20,000 files and increase support for files up to 10GB in size. Along with this there are numerous changes in the web client, the iOS and Android clients. This will improve the ability for users to access their data anywhere on any device, edit and share documents.

These changes will be made public soon and we will update you when they are. Read more about the new OneDrive for Business experience.

Likes and Mentions in Outlook on the Web

office 2016 logoOver the last several years, social networks have changed the way we communicate. In our personal lives, we show our approval by “Liking” a friend’s status update on Facebook and we “@Mention” others in a Twitter post to call attention to it. In our workplace, these same social concepts became popular through enterprise social tools such as Yammer. Microsoft is now introducing Like and @Mention to workplace email in Outlook on the web.

How it works. To Like a message, simply click the thumbs-up icon in the reading pane. This turns the icon from grey to blue, notes within the email that you liked the message and adds a thumbs-up icon in the email list view. Anyone on the thread can Like a message, and their Likes are identified and captured within the message as well. If someone likes your email, you’ll receive a notification letting you know.

While the focus of Likes is on specific emails, the focus of Mentions is on specific individuals. When collaborating on email, it is common to call out a specific person for an action or request. Another scenario is adding a person to an existing thread for their attention—perhaps you are on a thread and know that the person who can answer a question was not initially included. Using the Mentions feature ensures that the person is not only aware of the request but is also included in the thread.

To use Mentions, simply add the @ symbol in the body of an email. This will bring up your frequent contacts as well as access to your directory. Select the person you want to highlight, and they will automatically be added to the To: line if they were not already included. In addition, their name will be highlighted in the message in blue and they will receive an @ flag in their inbox view next to the message. Furthermore, they can sort by their @ messages to ensure they respond to all messages in which they were mentioned.

This new feature will start tolling out mid-October and be generally available mid-November. The feature will roll to the desktop Outlook clients for Windows and Mac in the first half of 2016. Learn more about how the Like and Mention Feature can work for your organisation.

Office 365 Groups

We're releasing a new feature to enhance your Office 365 experience. Office 365 Groups is now available as part of Outlook 2016 and with the Outlook Groups app on Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Office 365 Groups allows individuals to easily self-form public or private teams. Each group includes a shared inbox, calendar, file repository and notebook and is a great way to keep your team productive.

Learn more about Office 365 Groups.

Contact us now if you want to access these features for your organisation as soon as they become available. I am also happy to demo them to you in a demo environment.

Follow up on Richard Bowles Seminar

We had an extremely rewarding opportunity for those people who learnt from Richard Bowles who discussed amongst other things that, Goals guide us, they don’t drive us. Every attendee responded positively with something they learnt. Dianne said “Major take out for me was "A motive is a need to do something, not a reason to do something. The need comes from within you." Great stuff.”

If you are looking at a plan that will see you bullet proof your commitment to what you set out to achieve, and have you working towards your goals with ease, dedication and without burnout, then we can provide you with access to the master planning information from this seminar at a special price.

Contact us today if you want more information.

Using the SUBTOTAL Function in Excel

Function errors are very common in Excel Spreadsheets. Possibly the worst ones I see are where people create spreadsheets to total up data and use the SUM formula to add together cells in ranges. Then they add new data to the edges of those ranges but the SUM formula doesn’t pick that up. There is a Subtotal function in Excel that will solve that problem especially when using tables of data or wanting to create grand totals from a number of subtotals. I have written a blog post all about how to use the SUBTOTAL function in Excel.

Talk to us today if you create spreadsheets to sum your data. I can show you in less than 1 hour how to save hours of your time per year through using shortcuts, better spreadsheet design and some very powerful Excel Functions.

Customise your Windows 10 Start screen

The Start screen in Windows is one of the most emotional things about using Windows. It is where you have significant control about what you do and don’t see easily on your computer. The new Windows 10 Start screen is a blend of the old Windows 7 start menu and the Windows 8 modern tile apps. There are a number of ways you can customise this area and make it your own. In addition, this can be done per device so that depending on what device you are on you can see at a glance what you need most. E.g. work apps on your office PC, family stuff at home and maybe games and entertainment on your tablet or 2 in 1 device. A new feature of Windows 10 called Continuum also ensures that the screen scales to the size of the device you are using and also the mode (e.g. touch or keyboard).

Organise Apps

Clicking the left hand start menu gives you various.

Clicking the All Apps link gives you a list of all the applications on your PC. Clicking any Alphabet letter gives you the list of all the alphabet letters and the option to shoot straight to any of them.

windows 10 start screen customise 1windows 10 start screen customise 3windows 10 start screen customise 2

You can add, delete, resize and organise apps in the start screen just as in Windows 8. You can add apps by right clicking any app and Pinning it to the start screen or by dragging it from the left hand menu.

Resizing the Start Window

The start window can be resized both up and across – roll your mouse the edge and get the double edged arrow to change the size of the start menu.

Personalise the Start Screen

In the settings there are two main option areas for personalising the start screen. Click Start and Settings and Personalisation.

Quickly create an Online Survey – using Excel and OneDrive

When you login to Office 365 you should see an icon in your apps list for OneDrive. This is your personal user accounts 1TB of storage space. Once you go there online you get access to some interesting features not available on your PC.

Using Sway to generate Online Documents and websites – no programming!

Nearly every business uses PowerPoint and Word. Turning your documents into online applications is far easier than you might think. Using Sway (on your Office 365 app list or by going to www.sway.com) you can turn your existing PowerPoint and word documents into websites that you can send your customers to. For example here is the digital strategy presentation we give to our customers. This took 5 minutes to upload and tweak using the visual tools in Sway.

Using Delve to improve your Corporate Communications

Businesses today create large amounts of data. From sales reports, customer presentations, tenders and quotes, SOP, Office Procedures and other how to documents to excel spreadsheets and power points there is endless amounts of data being created. SharePoint is the ideal place to store all this data as it is so easily accessible by all users from any location and on any device.

But how do you know what is being created? Are you repeating work that someone else has done, or do you need to copy and paste boilerplate text? What about utilising someone else’s spreadsheet to get you started with that new analysis report your boss just asked for? Office Delve is the new tool being rolled out in Office 365 to assist with surfacing information that is tailored to you.

From the Office Website:

Delve helps you discover the information that's likely to be most interesting to you right now - across Office 365. You don't have to remember the title of a document or where it's stored. Delve shows you documents no matter where they're stored in OneDrive for Business or in Sites in Office 365.

Delve also lets you view your colleagues' profiles, or edit your own. Your profile is like an electronic business card you share inside your organization.

Delve never changes any permissions, so you'll only see documents that you already have access to. Other people will not see your private documents. Learn more about privacy.

When you and your colleagues view, edit, and share each other's documents, Delve learns from how you work and tailors the information to each of you on your personalized Home page. What you see in Delve is different from what your colleagues see.

Did you get to the end of the Financial Year in good shape?

I certainly hope 2014-2015 was a good year for you and that you are looking forward to lots of new prospects, sales and good business in the next. I have outlined below some end of year things that you should take note of.

Financial Year End Tasks - Backups

There are lots of things to do at Financial Year End. Preparing Trust and Company minutes, getting stocktakes done and preparing final things for your accountant are some of the important ones. However in this newsletter I want to highlight some often neglected ones.

Jethro-Facebook-Alex-Hughes-076-Backup-Peace-of-Mind

First of all remember a copy of your data is not necessarily a backup. If you copy it, label it and store it securely it can be. The important test is that it is not being overwritten. So using your daily backup without taking monthly or at the very least annual snapshots of your data is a poor process. At the very least you should be able to locate and recover from the last 1-5 financial years data. If you do not have a “proper” backup process in place then ask us how to do so. These components should be a checklist for you. A Proper Backup should:

  • Allow you to recover from the last day, week, month, year – meaning you have access to media with those data sets on them.
  • Be labelled – clear and time proof labelling (not post it notes)
  • Be recorded – note who did the backup, when and what was backed up as well as the media it was stored on if your system does not do that for you automatically.
  • Be tested – at least once every 3-6 months you should run a recovery test to ensure that you can recover your data in the case of a failure.

Contact us now if you can’t tick off all those items for your backups.

Financial Year End Tasks – Using Excel Spreadsheets

Nearly every business uses Excel Spreadsheets. And none more so than office staff, accountants and book keepers. While Excel is a fantastic Business Intelligence tool a quick google search on parliamentary inquiries excel errors will scare the pants off you. I have seen first-hand how QLD government has reported incorrect numbers based on spreadsheets with errors in them. Most businesses also have the same problem – even mine! Relying on spreadsheet data for financial information needs to be done with the right auditing tools in place to ensure fidelity of the data, and comparison with the source (accounting) data. Done right Excel Reporting tools can greatly improve a business’s ability to manage their financial information, management reporting and other data. I have 27 years of experience of working with financial data in Excel (since version 1 and Lotus Notes before that). If you would like some assistance to ensure that your spreadsheet design (or your accounting staff’s spreadsheets) are accurate there are some simple things we can do to assist you. Even if that is just a couple of hours of specific training in good spreadsheet design techniques.

Talk to us about Excel and VBA training for your business. We provide customised training that your end users will find useful straight away – not just going through a manual on formulas and functions they will never need or use.

Financial Year End Tasks – Filing and Archives

CB107982_LoResI grew up in businesses with large filing archives, microfiche machines, rooms full of filing cabinets, stacked shelving and the dusty ceiling space storage accessed with a torch in times of desperate need only!

Today we create data in multiples so much greater than those days of typing pools, slow copy machines and dusty archives. However often digital data is stored in the same method that we used to store analogue data. This is really rather ridiculous when we think about it. Before computers data could only be stored in one place in a filing system and the indexing method needed to be able to help you easily find that data. Today with the use of metadata we can store data anywhere and use powerful search algorithms to find and locate data. The key is the metadata. Without it we can be as lost as the person in the archives who discovers all the vertical tab filing labels have fallen off.

The modern office stores data in most if not all the following places. Email, hard drives, network servers and storage, cloud storage places, USB external drives and mobile devices. How many times have you or someone you know spent ages looking for the file, email or image you “saved” and now can’t remember where it is?

Talks to us about how we can help you make the best use of your digital filing systems and reduce wasted time

Quick Steps in Outlook

outlook quick stepsEmail management is probably the largest time waster for businesses and office workers today.

Windows 10 Specifications

More and more information is coming out around Windows 10 and the specifications have now been released for the upgrade. There potentially will be deprecations of applications and features. The official Windows 10 Specifications page lists the minimum requirements for hardware and also lists all the potential issues.

WARNING! At this stage if you are running a small business network with a server we don’t recommend upgrading to Windows 10 yet. If you are running individual PCS then there should be no problem, but I would recommend either doing it on a non-critical machine first or asking us to assist. Finally you should have a Microsoft ID before upgrading. Windows 8 users will likely already have one but Windows 7 users might not.

Talk to us first if you are not sure about updating to Windows 10.

Social Media Images Sizes

Jethro-Marketing-facebook-highlight-mar-2015-1

There are so many different social media platforms and they all have different recommended image sizes for use in the header, profile pic and content. It can be very difficult working out what size to use where. Getting it wrong can mean that images don’t display correctly, scale badly, crop text or logos from the image or worse. We actually use a spreadsheet tool we have developed to identify the correct sizes for to convert images to for each platform as well as many other regular formats such as A4 portrait and landscape, DL flyers, business cards and more. If you struggle with this talk to us and we can help. In the meantime this website gives you a great cheat sheet for social media image sizes on some of the more popular platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest) and the sizes to use for headers, profile pics and inline content.
