Office Suites-Other

An office suite is a collection of bundled productivity software (a software suite) intended to be used by knowledge workers. The components are generally distributed together, have a consistent user interface and usually can interact with each other, sometimes in ways that the operating system would not normally allow. Most contain a word processor, a spreadsheet, an email client and presentation software; some might contain a database program. Several office suites have their own topics: Microsoft Office, Office 365, LibreOffice (also known as OpenOffice), Lotus IBM and Google Apps.

Assigning comments to people in Google Docs
Subject of the week | What software update developed in the past year were you the most excited about?
A favorite update of mine was in Google Docs last fall. They added the ability to "assign" a comment to someone that you mention in the comment. I've found it very handy when using docs for meeting notes that have to-do items. Also great when there's a document that several people need to contribute to. Assign each section to the appropriate person and they can mark as resolved when they're finished with their update.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Dear Google Calendar Web Client,

I really like that you provide notifications to remind me when I've got a meeting in 10 minutes. I really don't like when you seize control of my browser and switch what tab I'm on to give me this reminder, specially when I'm in the middle of typing something and suddenly I've got a half formed sentence on some other window somewhere and I need to spend the next 5 minutes getting back to it and finishing my thought...

Why can't you offer up a browser notification instead?! Or is there a way to have you do that now that I just don't know about?

OMG! Yes! Thank you Craig! I remember some time long ago looking for something like that and it must not have existed yet... So I've just sort of lived with it being that way. Glad I decided to rant about this ;-)

Oh, and if you put together an article with a tip about that, I'd totally endorse it to help you get points ;-)
