  • Create and Edit Rules to manage emails

  • Use the Filter Email feature to weed out all the unnecessary stuff when you need to focus onsomething in particular

  • Use the many Views available in Outlook to your advantage – Conversations, Groups and Message Previews

You will also learn how to:

  • Share your email folders with others

  • Work with the many panes – Reading, People, Folder and To Do Bar

  • Use the Advanced Find and Search feature

  • Color-code emails with the Conditional Formatting feature

  • Use Categories for added flexibility

  • Manage meeting invitations

During this rapid-fire 60-minute presentation, Michele will have you feeling as though you can leap over tall buildings with a single bound! Time permitting, she may even touch on the other powerful components of Outlook: the Calendar, Contacts,
Tasks, To-Do Lists and Notes!

We’ll review quick formatting techniques using the new 2013 formatting features, as well as some quick formatting of lines and shapes that works in all versions of Visio.

Excel 2013Do you work with a lot of charts? Do you need to make them look more interesting and use them in PowerPoint presentations? In this webcast – we will look at how to create charts in Excel using the new 2013 features. Some of the features in 2010 have moved or disappeared and you may need to find where they went.

We will look at formatting using the ribbons to add labels, titles, adjust the scale, add graphics inside the columns/bars, as well as working with pie charts and mixing chart styles in one chart. Also, did you know you could save a chart style as a template and use it again later – even in PowerPoint. You can animate charts in PowerPoint – even charts that you copy and paste from Excel. We will show the Sparkline feature, which creates a mini chart in a cell.
