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.

Need to combine OCR generate fields into meaningful values.

I have an OCR engine working well as it generates a space delimited text file. But the small fragment need to be combined into something meaningful as a form of post processing.

For example, the text on the page says:

VS DB DB Business Card - Retail

But in space delimited form, this is 7 fields.

I already have a finite list of about 25 possible strings, and can embed then in an array, such as

"VS DB CPS/Retail"
"VS DB DB Business Card - Retail"

so, I need to post-process the OCR generated file to be comma quote delimited, and use one of these pre-defined strings, when the OCR finds them.

What is a good paradigm for this?

Also, given this is OCR, there is a chance for a read error.

Thanks.

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

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???
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.
