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.

Breaking up my PowerPoint seminar

What features exist in PowerPoint to organize my seminar? I see how Sections can be made and named. How can I use those sections to:

- Create an outline?
- Skip a section to the following section?

What other methods exist for this in PowerPoint?

And what other things can be done with Sections in PowerPoint?

Thanks.

Each of the below MDBs are in folders that has different GROUP permissions which might include 100+ people, but only 2+ people are using the database

How can I START getting a list of all Windows UserNames or Computer HostNames who accesses the files over the next 60 days, so I have results two months from now since I plan to sunset all these old databases after I convert them to newer ASP.net MVC apps ?

  ** 50+ old Access 2003 MDB databases
  ** all in different network folders

I have a trust center policy established for Office, Word, etc. 2010. Yet the last two times I've installed Office 2010 for a user I get the "read only" banner at the top of the document. I've had to go to options > trust center ..., in Word, Excel and powerpoint on the workstation and specifically add the redirected folder location in order for the user to be able to edit the documents without having to "Enable for editing" each time something is opened. In my Group Policies I have:

Protected View, Trust Center Office 2010 > Policies > Administrative Templates: Policy definitions > Microsoft Word 2010 > Word Options > Security > Trust Center > Trusted Locations > Trusted Location #1, set to \\mail.hprs.local (AD/DC), Enabled and subfolders are checked.

... Trust Center > Trusted Locations > Allow Trusted Locations on the network, is enabled.checked.

The above is likewise set for Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 and Office 2010.

Why then do the Office programs on the workstation give me the Protected Mode "Read Only" setting and require me to add the location to the trust center locally for each Office component?

We have an older XP box attached to a Brother fax machine over the network... the Brother machine came with software to automatically convert incoming faxes to .tif file. I then built a series of batch files along with Acrobat that converts the .tif files into pdf's that we can copy / paste from. The system works great but I built it in 2009 and I'm worried about the infrastructure not holding up much longer... either the Brother software or the XP box or the fax machine itself is getting hung up more often now, and when it does, the faxes print on paper instead of the whole pdf / copy paste things, and then we have a stack of paper to deal with.

What's out there these days as an incoming fax system that can result in a pdf which can be copy / pasted from?

When I knew very little about visio, in making network docs, I would jam way too much on 1 drawing, thinking I had to make an entire different file with a 2nd page.  DUH!

So I know a little more and love the seperate pages and being able to have a common background on all of them, etc.

Now, is there a way to make a table of contents page? A first page that lists the name of each page in the file?  Maybe updates automatically?  When you add another page / rearrange the order of pages, this page auto updates?

Using PowerPoint (Mac) to Show vs. Hide certain slides

I need to make three of four presentation which have overlapping slides. Many are the same and some are unique. But I do not want to manage multiple copies of the same slides, especially when I need to start making modifications. What a pain that would be to keep all version current!

So, I imagine that if I could hide certain slides from viewing for Presentation #2, for example, I could have a partial solution to my versioning problem.

In fact, the only thing that would cause my plan to fail is if I needed the slides to appear in a different sequence, on one of the  presentations.

Please let me know what facilities exist in PowerPoint (Mac 16.11) to handle multiple presentations with overlapping slides.

Thanks

Hello,
I am trying to display a pdf image to a winform. I am using axacropdf to try to accomplish this. It is working perfectly the first time I pass a .pdf file to it to display. After the first time it doesn't display the image but shows a comment and fill/sign section. How can I reset this control each time so it only displays the image I want to see.

            //Display the card pdf image
            string sAGIN = Convert.ToString(dtMOcard.Rows[0][37]);
            string sAGIN3 = sAGIN.Substring(0, 3);
            pdfCard.setShowToolbar(false);
            pdfCard.src = "";
            pdfCard.LoadFile(@"\\usoscs320\e_drive\Gracol PDF Done NEW\" + sAGIN3 + @"\" + sAGIN + @"\F" + sAGIN + @".pdf");
            //pdfCard.src = @"\\usoscs320\e_drive\Gracol PDF Done NEW\" + sAGIN3 + @"\" + sAGIN + @"\F" + sAGIN + @".pdf";

We are trying to find out how to redirect Onedrive/Box/Dropbox to a shared network folder. We've done some research and if it's possible it seems to be done with a lot of "hacks" to make it work.

gSuite help is still terrible.

I have several comments about how using paid support for Office 365 is far superior to the experience using gSuite including my comment on this article from 2015.

Yesterday's call to gSuite support reconfirms.  Problem is a user wants to have access to Android apps on his new Google Pixelbook. Going to settings on the Pixelbook to enable the feature is grayed out.  A call to Pixelbook support confirmed the issue is the user is a member of a business gSuite account and there is a feature that has to be turned on.  I was directed to call into gSuite. Calling gSuite support is about as helpful as talking to my 2 year old niece. The gSuite tech acted as if he had no knowledge of a Pixelbook. I had to explain several times it was a product of his own company. Even going down the Chromebook route didn't help. He could simply point to turning on a feature that was already set. Otherwise, I would have to call the Pixelbook Support.

I have called into office 365 support for many issues. Sometimes the issue went beyond the scope of what the tech should have helped for their own silo, but they still were able to spend 30 to 60 minutes on the phone to solve the issue with great patience and product knowledge.

After the sale support many times goes unnoticed or untested.  When evaluating a service or software, I will call in…

Please do Scott. I'll be more than happy to edit and get it published for you.

I think a lot of people may benefit from your experiences, and it may just be the push Google needs to provide some decent support.

Hi,
I'm facing some random issue when users save documents on Sharepoint 2016.

Sometime, when we open it again, under the last modification, ... the last modification are lost.

From SharePoint Librarie  when I (author and some users) try to open the last version:

1) The last changes are missing
2) On File Properties:  the last Change is on a older version

I tried to fix it by:

- Office Center Upload: deleting all file in cache (Sometime it fix the trouble and the last version opens well)
- Delete all file in inetCache
- Restore default value for internet explorer

Our infra:

SharePoint 2016 on Premise
  One SharePoint Server on 2012 R2
  One SQL 2014 Server on 2012 R2
RDS 2012 farm with a collection's servers
Users have their profile on a vhdx disk
Users use Office 365
