Productivity Apps

Productivity software is application software dedicated to producing information, such as documents, presentations, worksheets, databases, charts, graphs, digital paintings, electronic music and digital video. Most common programs and suites such as Microsoft Office and LibreOffice have their own topics. Office suites, which brought word processing, spreadsheet, and relational database programs to the desktop in the 1980s, are the core example of productivity software, but they can include communications software, personal information managers, groupware and log analysis software.

I have a Mac Bok Pro and an iPhone and need a new budget solution, other than Excel. It's too passive, and not effective at keeping me on budget.

What options are there?

Anything that works on both the MacBook and the iPhone? Such as configure and populated on the Mac, but interacted with via the iPhone?

Thanks.

i am trying to understand something and need your help.

we purchased a phone for $200 from a vendor called "Vendor"
we paid $200 by credit card.

we went to QB created a bill to Vendor for $200 and we paid it by the credit card.

we were charged by FedEx $20 to deliver the item, we created a bill for FedEx for $20 and paid it by check.

three days later the item arrived, we created a receiving voucher, and we split the fee/freight/discount so we have the accurate final cost at the POS as we mark up 10% from that. now the phone cost is $220. which is great.

we do financial exchange. we look in QB, to find that we owe VENDOR $220. which is not the case, we have to go and manually adjust that.

where did we go wrong? and how should it be done, to keep inventory and chart of account always UP TO DATE>

Thank you

I was told that often or usually network monitoring software is installed on its own dedicated VM. A past regime here created a separate volume on our main file server for the network monitor. I don't think it is necessary to set up a dedicated VM (our network isn't that large), but is it necessary or recommended to keep it on its own volume? Comments on a dedicated VM are appreciated as well.

thanks!

On Microsoft website, both SCCM and SCOM are listed with monitoring feature. For example:
SCCM: Client health and monitoring
SCOM: Infrastructure and application monitoring and alerting; System state, health, and performance information

Can you tell me what differences they offer in terms of system health monitoring of hardware and software?

Hi
I have a problem with a database that is located on a server and shared.
Every few days people complain that they can't open one of the company. It's not always the same. Some time they can open Company A and not B and some time company B but not A
When it happen no body can open that specific database until I reboot the server.
The error is 50 Sage 50 Cannot open the database because the database engine reported an error. Sage 50 Has detect a firewall which may be blocking files that are require by Sage 50. Please ensure that any necessary files has been added to your firewall list of permited programs.

I verify that Simply is allow on all machines and the fact that rebooting the server fix the problems it tells me that the problem is at the server level and not at the PC.
Any ideas what can cause it?

Please provide me with resources the explain US IRS Income Tax brackets.

I need to plan ahead to make sure that I don't make too much that will put me in a higher income tax bracket that will cause me to loose more money than I have earned.

I need to make sure that if I am going to go into a higher income tax bracket that I make enough money during that particular year to justify me paying the higher rate taxes.

Saving a web page to OneNote results in a picture of the page. However, the text is searchable.

1. Is the resulting picture of the web page a non-editable PDF ?
2. How can one annotate a web page (the resulting picture) in OneNote? Meaning, inserting comments at the right place, not before or after the page picture.

Greetings IT pros,
I'm doing research for a new IT service desk application.  I'd appreciate any reviews and/or recommendations from the community!  Our criteria are:

-cloud based
-service desk (help desk) ticketing system integrates with Active Directory
-service desk integrates with workflows and a project management application
-robust support
-reporting and filtering to help us maintain our customer SLA

We're currently using Spiceworks, but we'd like something with more formal support.  I've been experimenting with Jira Agile and Jira Service Desk but am pretty disappointed in how Jira accommodates the above criteria.  Any suggestions from you IT professionals out there?

Thanks much!

I have a utility created in VBA (Excel 2010) that connects to a MS SQL database and displays customer information.
I Have SQL Express Loaded on the Tablets.

The Utility works fast on a Desktop but is Sluggish on a Tablet (Especially the first time you open a item (2.5 Seconds) - There after it is faster (1 Second))

What would you recommend to speed this up?
What Other software could I use to create the Utility?

I need to take User inputs and use these to filter against the Database to return a list for the user to select from.
Clicking a Line will open to more details of the item.
See Screen shot.

Hello.  Not really a tech question but I am having a difficult time finding this and I thought I would try here.  There are news monitoring services like Critical Mention that charge a monthly fee to track articles online and in social media.  I don't want to pay a monthly fee for this.  I want to buy the software directly.  Does anyone out there know where this type of software can be purchased outright.  Thank you in advance.

had to take over for a network guy who quit in the middle of the day. (please be patient) I need to determine who/what/when/where/how on bandwidth hogs. I am under the impression that we can through the switch manage/monitor data usage plus a number of other things. How do I do this? I have the following dell switches in my infrastructure:

3448P/5548P/3548P/N2048/N3048

Does anyone know if there is a GUI or windows or dell app that would allow for a beginner to begin learning & manage these?

Hi

I work with PRTG and provide one of my clients with a weekly reports.

I'd like to automate the process by using VBA to collect graphs from PRTG and insert them into a table in Winword 2013.

The URL look like this :
http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8080/chart.png?type=graph&width=400&height=200&graphid=2&id=5493

Open in new window


When I load this in a browser I obtain the expected result : a graph in PNG format

Is it possible to use VBA in order to collect and insert these graphs into my word document ?

thanks

Hi,

Does anyone know if any CRM type software that also allows you to send email through it.

I'd like to be able to set up template emails and then allow staff to login and send emails to various customers / leads and update their status (not interested, no reply, live)

- different employees can login and send emails through the same campaign but from their email address (peter@domain.com, paul@domain.com)

- update each customer to a different sales status so we can track leads and where they came from etc.

How do I prevent Evernote from appearing in my Google search results.  quite annoying that my personal stuff is by default showing up like that.  I have EN installed on my iphone, work PC and home macbook air?

Also is it possible to send a note from Evernote as a PDF using iphone mail (a bit like sending a photos as an attachment to a mail)?

Thanks.

I have a Samsung phone and have been using s planner as my calendar app.  I also have a MS Surface Pro tablet and use the native calendar app on it.  These two calendars have always synced (in both directions) until recently.  Now there is no syncing in either direction.  The only changes that I can think of were an Android update (to version 4.4.2) and I also uninstalled an old version of the Outlook app on the phone (a new version had already been installed so had both on the phone for a while).

Is anyone aware of anything that might have changed to stop this from working?
Thanks
