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.

Setting up our first 'real' client on office 365 (others have been SOHO accounts - either new domains / starting from scratch or existing IMAP accounts.  but never more than 2 - 3 mailboxes).

Here we have 12 users on an SBS 2011 standard domain with the exchange running on the SBS 2010

They would like a proposal for moving to office 365.

Would anyone care to share their thinking on the things involved and the time involved below? Or does Microsoft offer info on this?

I would envision figuring the time is  a bit of a formula?  

Some fixed hours for setting up the office 365 tenant, changing the MX, SPF records, disabling exchange on the sbs box, and ____?  This would be the base work you'd do for setting up a domain that has 1 user or 100 users.... call that AccountSetupHours

Then there's time per mailbox to setup that specific user account on office 365, touch each desktop and each user's phone to change where outlook is pointing to (is there an easier way than just hitting each desk and each phone?  I am using Synnex as CSP for office 365 and they say for that small a number of users, there's a migrationwiz product but doesn't make sense to use that product).   Call that time PerUserSetupHours.  Figure this does NOT include migration of old data)

And they most likely would want it, but to keep it separate, migrating their old data as a separate item -  setup and running migrationwhiz (i never used it before), What else would go under this?  But …

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!

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

Running Thunderbird 52.8.0 (32 bit) with the mail supply from Office 365.

Two issues:

1. I have a series of Grey folders - almost all are empty. If I delete them they disappear then reappear???
2. I have created some new folders in Outlook that don't appear when viewed form Thunderbird.

I would prefer to use Thunderbird as my front end.

I followed this video to use ticketing authentication with Qlik Sense using .Net
But received this error message at the end:
Certificate not found! Verify AppPool credentials.

Open in new window


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?

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

Hi, i've been using Trello a lot lately and i'm considering moving everything over from Evernote to Trello. Like many others on here, productivity and organisation are key to me.

While there is no right or wrong answer to my question(s), I would like to hear what other people's thoughts and setup are, in relation tot he following:

01 - when you have a list of items or tasks... how do you define whether you should add them as 'multiple cards on a list' or 'add all of the items as a checklist to one card' :-)

02 - has anyone else moved their notes from Evernote to Trello... how did you find the change?

03 - any regrets or dislikes with Trello

Thank you in advance for your help.
