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.

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.

Has anyone done this successfully?

I have a excel sheet where I am trying to get results based on some values user seelcts from the drop-down box. But for some reason my one cell is not outputing the correct values. It seems it is showing the same value no matter when I change the value in the dropdown box. Can somebody please help me resolve this issue. Cell E16 is the formula which is not working and the formula is =(671*(E13*100/E5))/100. I have attached the excel sheet

Email setup and working on Secretaries PC boss now wants it on his iphone and his PC set it all up as per normal ie it’s a hotmail email that was configured in exchange by his ex accountant.

It pops up briefly in the inbox of the bosses devices and then literally disappears. I’ve tried from scratch setups on PST and OST data files, auto archive etc.

Hair pulling aside any clues both run Outlook 2007 fully patched and legal. Many thanks in advance.

A customer of mine was getting notices when he opened outlook 2016 that his mailbox, and internet calendars were corrupted. We would go through and scan it would say it fixed it but then when we re-opened outlook, same issue.

I have deleted the profile
I have setup a new outlook profile for the gmail account.
I have setup internet calendars again (private) and also have imported the contacts from gmail into outlook.

Is there a way that we can capture the autocomplete listing the customer had with his old profile? Isn't there a file that contains this listing? I can just move it to where the current one is and name it that name so outlook thinks that its the present one?

I'm using Skype For Business 16.13.184 on Mac OS 10.13.2

We are testing out Skype for Business with our Office 365 Business Premium license and the first thing I noticed is I cannot paste an Image from the clipboard into the chat. I can Attach an Image, but thats more work if I'm sending screen shots.   Seems to work on Windows.

We have a single user from one of our clients, when she gets some internal emails, instead of the subject, it shows a file location.  We have rebuilt the profile, uninstalled/reinstalled Office, but can find no cause for this. Thoughts?example of error. note the file location is for a different user, not the one using Outlook

We have a few users who are using Outlook 2016. When they perform a search in email for a particular email, the results are not updating. Entries are only showing since Jan 2, yet they can view messages from today.

Anyone experience this issue with 2016?

As you can see in the chart, the hash marks do not line up with the dollar amounts on the X-Axis.

I would like $5K to be under a hash, and every hash to have a number under it.

I hope to allow merchants to upload a merchant statement for a particular type of analysis. But I do not want to be the recipient of confidential data, when possible.

Is there an easy way for people to blank out certain fields on a PDF? Things like Business Name, Address, Account Number, etc.

I can do this easily Adobe Acrobat Pro, but would rather not force users to purchase a license just to remove their private info. Is there a simple way, with Adobe Reader, for example, to edit out certain key data?

If not, are there other tools they could use to open the PDF and delete certain fields?

Is it unwise for my site to suggest they use a trial version of Adobe Acrobat Pro and provide them the URL to this free trial?

Thanks.

I need a tool I can use to digitize a report, like the one attached here...

Report
Will this kind of report get a 100% successful conversion rate?

Eventually, I need the tool to be part of my website, but I have not, as yet, chosen my back-end technology. For now, a simple Mac based tool is fine, just so I can hand convert a report that I can start to use in my programming of the back-end.

Windows is okay, if there are limited Mac FREE versions.

I do have Office 365 (Mac) if there is a tool in there which I can use.

I am also interested in hearing what "plug-ins" can work when I deploy this to my website, for online OCR conversions.

My graph needs a bit of help, but first the most obvious errors...

(Excel file below)

Graph

1) the colors for the legend on the right side are in the wrong order. Any idea why?
2) The X-Axis shows correct prices, but I would like them on the hash marks

then, the questions that are about taste.

This is a graph for non-technical people. How does it look?

ThreeYearCosts.xlsx

I think my title is klutsy

Is this better?
Three Year TotalCost
for Four Different Transaction Rates
in $5,000 Monthly Increments

And how about the X-Axis title?

If this can not be very clear for the Experts on EE, it will be very confusing for the target audience.

Thanks.

Here is the Excel file

Hi

In our organization we use Starleaf Breeze for videoconference. However, we also have Skype for business online as part of our Office365 Enterprise E3 license.

However, when using Skype for business we cannot call external partners. In the Office365 admin center, under Skype for business, we have enabled open federation, but still we cannot call anyone outside our organization.

If i call a test site like 0262463194@csiro.au with our Starleaf Breeze client, the call is immediately successful. But if i call the same number with Skype for Business, the call just ends in a "0262463194@csiro.au was not found"

What am i missing here?
