Office Productivity

Office Productivity refers both to the act of being productive and efficient in an office or professional environment, as well as the software applications used to "produce" information. This includes the development of professional skills, creating work processes, and almost any program used to create or modify a document, image, audio or video clip. However, business application suites such as Microsoft Office, which include word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, are typically called productivity software, as contrasted with a "utility program," such as a file manager, which is used to organize files and folders on the computer. Many office- and business-oriented groups of programs are organized into suites.

Hello experts,
We are rolling out Office 365, and part of our roadmap is to introduce the Office client from Office 365 “aka Office ProPlus/Office 2016” on our client machines - VDI and some regular desktop. My question is how did your companies dealt.doing with the legacy Office (eg we currently have Office 2010)  on users desktops and VDIs, so users would move to the newest version? Any insights would be helpful!

Thanks!

CompTIA Cloud+

The CompTIA Cloud+ Basic training course will teach you about cloud concepts and models, data storage, networking, and network infrastructure.

I guess I really don't know what I am doing.

Working on an SBS 2011 Standard machine on subnet 192.168.1.0.

There's a vpn to a remote location 192.168.2.0

A new laptop at the remote site with windows 10 / office 2016 keeps getting an error about the autodiscover.domain.com certificate.  It says the name on the security cert is invalid or does not batch the name of the site.

Clicking on view cert, it says it's issued to: domain.com   issued by let's encrypt authority x3 with valid date of 8/14/18 to 11/12/18

WE DO have a certifficate for the domain issued by comodo.  From a browser, if you type remote.domain.com/owa, you get to the owa page and it says it's secured with the comodo cert.

anyone know where the lets encrypt certificate is coming from?

Other laptops at that remote location are working fine for email.

Need a FREE survey web tool

I need free because of how I plan to deploy it to numerous businesses. But, I need some features also.

Mostly, I need the ability to export the questions, then import them into a different account.

Am i asking too much?

Thanks

Need a good cloud survey tool

I need a robust survey tool that enables me to develop a few "parent" surveys, but create an unlimited number of "child" surveys, which can inherit questions and answer, word for word, OR add and delete questions and answers.

Without a system to manage this, I see it could easily get way out of control, especially as customizations roll in.

I also need this survey to be anonymous so that clients can send my URL to their customer list without fear they will be losing their customer list.

I hope to get notifications when a survey has been completed.

What tool can you suggest?

Thanks.

Need a WiFi label printer

I do not like messing with Avery labels on a single sheet, passing it through my laser printer.

A sheet with 24 labels may need to pass through 24 times, causing the label to become dark. It just does not suit me.

I need standard label sizes and hope to set it up using WiFi and always loaded with blank labels, so I can just print.

What designs meet this need?

I expect to use Word to print the labels.

in my company they want to implement express route since we have office 365 or use a wan balancer.

However according to what I read express route should be used with an optimization tool because express route helps on internet latency but connections are still bound by the inherent limitations of long-distance TCP connections and that Global SD-WANs are better candidates for cloud’s .


can someone help me clarify

One Note - Conflicts
Hi, we have a 15 tab excel spreadsheet within One Note that is shared by two people.
Even though we don't edit the same cells, and we try and close the spreadsheet when we aren't using it, we constantly get conflicts within One Note and end up losing work as we cant remember what has been changed.
One note does allow you to compare the spreadsheet with the conflict sheet, but as far as I can tell, doesn't tell you what's different. Its not practical for me to compare 15 sheets with loads of data in each.
Is there any way to prevent this or can One Note show the exact cell(s) that are conflicting (it obviously knows them to report in the first place)
many thanks
Rick

Does anyone know what I need to change to get this VBA code to work in Excel for Mac? It works fine in Windows.

It is a show/hide toggle button for rows while the caption on the button changes as well. I used a form button (not ActiveX).

Sub HideDone()
Dim Shp As Shape
   
   Set Shp = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller)
   If Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done" Then
      Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Show All"
      Range("A1").AutoFilter 10, "<>11. Published", xlAnd, "<>Cancelled"
   Else
      Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done"
      ActiveSheet.ShowAllData
   End If
End Sub

Open in new window


The message I get is
Run-time error 1004
Method 'TextFrame' of object 'Shape' failed

This code is highlighted in yellow
If Shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = "Hide Done" Then

I asked someone to create for me a Word template for the following booklet type:

http://gtsak.info/small-brochure-template/small-brochure-template-make-pocketmods-little-booklets-with-ms-word-3-steps-download/

I was given the following:

and was told it works fine on Word 2010.

InWord 2018 I do not see how to set to 8 pages...

Layout does not contain 8 pages
I see 6 or 9,,not 8.

Any idea why not?

Thanks.

Need a Word Template (Mac) for multi-fold booklet

I love the idea of using this little pocket booklet, but can not make this template in Word.

I assume the template would maintain the proper orientation, for example.

Can anyone dig one up for me?

Problem printing two half-pages on one side of the paper.

I am creating a flier that is 5.5 X 8.5, two sided, and wanted to use Word to force myself to make two halves on the page. That works and is done.

But, I am having trouble printing it. I want both sides on the single side, side-by-side, of a Letter sides page. Then I can flip the printed pages and pass is through the printer again, and print it a second time with the same Word document.

How do I do this?

I hope I do not need to lay this out again.

I would consider printing each page to a PDG then using Adobe Acrobat CC to merge into the two into one document.

Can anyone help explain my options?

Thanks.

Does Microsoft Word have any way where code can be inserted in a format like the format shown below?

I often need to document code within Word 2016 documents and would prefer to document it in the same or a similar form to how code can be inserted into Experts Exchange postings:

If so how can this be done?

net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptsvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver
rd c:\windows\softwaredistribution.old /s /q
rd c:\windows\system32\catroot2.old /s /q
ren c:\windows\softwaredistribution softwaredistribution.old
ren c:\windows\system32\catroot2 catroot2.old
Net start wuauserv  
net start cryptsvc
net start bits
net start msiserver

Verified the application server that accessing the Qlik virtual proxy has the certificate (checked in the certificate Personal folder). What could be the issue that the authentication failed?
