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 everyone. I have an IT Solutions business and I have various clients. I am looking for a web service or a website solution where I can keep notes on different clients I have and keep an inventory count. Sort of like Evernote but with sensitive data, So, Preferably something encrypted I suppose ? I thought of using Mega.nz and then create a word file on there and make notes ? but that's not really a great solution. Thanks everyone.

Event on cell Changes in Excel.

I have a office addin where i react to a cell change event, working fine.

Sometimes the change will be from userinput, sometimes i will modify a cell through a automated call to server.

In both cases the veent fires: I need to deactivate this when my ADDIN modifies th cells, otherwise i will be runningn in circles.

Does anybody have a basic idea on how top solve this, besides writing the server modifications to an array, and parsing it with every event.

Hi all,

We have Office 2016 Professional Plus installed into our PC image which is installed on all of our company computers. This was installed using the Office Deployment Tool which installs Office 2016 from a network share, it is also set to update from a network share and to use the "Deferred" channel.

I am having a bit of trouble with the automatic updates. The source files are located in the path set by the Office Deployment Tool, security permissions are set correctly and the end users can get to that folder to get the updates.

If you go onto an Office application and go to File > Account and Update Now, it does successfully update Office to the version which is specified in the update location.

Sounds so good so far, right?

The problem I am having is I can't seem to get any of the clients to actually automatically update, it only seems to be if the end user goes to File > Account and Update Now.

I never set a deadline in the original config.xml script because obviously this would change, instead I just thought it would do it. (It was all new to me when it was originally implemented).

So I have set a deadline using GPO, which doesn't appear to be working. I set the deadline to the previous day in hope that my test client would quickly realise it needs to update. I can confirm that the registry key has been updated for the client to include the deadline. I have entered it in the format of MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM as stated in the policy details, I've also …

Running SharePoint 2016 Standard.  Build an Approval workflow, after the last approval occurs it seems to remain running.  I thought that the workflow step Transition Stage to End of Workflow will end it.  Do I need to set the workflow status to Completed?

Using Office365 forms we capture data on issues that have happening in the business.
The issue is, that when we're reporting these issues we can only report as one clump of data,
we can't separate out the reports per month. So, last month's detail will be merged with this month's.

Is there any way of separating out the reports per month without having to export last month's data
& delete all form entries each month?

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???

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.
