Office / Productivity

Office and productivity software is virtually any application people use to "produce" information. That includes 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.

I have a Mac where I use Parallels to use PowerPoint to create a presentation.

#1 It seems that MS did not give a viewer for PowerPoint files on a Mac. True or False?

#2 Can I Host GTM on the Mac, then open Parallels and Windows to demo a PP presentation?

#3 If I log onto GTM from Windows, then I assume any potential problems go away.

True?

A few end users are reporting that when they try to search for an email, they get a message that Outlook is still indexing. This is a newer problem that started the last week of June, first week of July. We're suspecting it might be caused by another Microsoft Update that went wrong but cannot fully support that theory. This is not tied to a specific OS as we have reports from both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro users.
We have a hybrid Exchange environment, hosting our own on-prem Exchange 2010 server and using Microsoft Office 2010 while our Archives are hosted through Microsoft. Logging on to our webmail the searches do complete without any hiccups.
So far on one affected user (since we don't know the root cause yet) we have rebuilt the Outlook index, recreated the Outlook profile, restarted the indexing service, moved indexing store location, and moved this user out of cached mode. The only thing for this end user that has worked thus far is taking them off of cached mode. We know this is only a temporary band aid and a solution is out there somewhere, we just haven't found it yet so we are reaching out to see if anyone else has been experiencing this sudden oddity and if so, has anyone found the resolve?

Thank you in advance,

Hi,

Does anyone have any tools that exports / backups your entire Trello account / boards.

I know the Business Class provides backup but it's one board at a time. I have over 70 boards so it's a little time consuming to backup each month.

Thank you in advance for your help.

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.

Hi,

I have one main Google calendar, however I work with a few different companies, and have a company email address and calendar for each of them too.

It's impossible to try and keep up to date with all 4 calendars:

Calendar 01 - my main calendar, inc. personal items
Calendar 02 - Company A
Calendar 03 - Company B
Calendar 04 - Company C

Problems
01 - I would just like to use Calendar 01 however I don't want to give my personal email address to the other 3 companies
02 - I need the other 3 companies to be able to see my main Calendar 01

Is it possible to link all 4 google calendars up, given that they are all on 4 different email addresses and that I don't want to use my personal email address for the 3 companies?

Thank you in advance for your help.
