File Triage: Working Smarter, Not Harder in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint
If you've ever spent hours—or perhaps days—'cleaning up' a document, spreadsheet, or presentation, this session is intended for you. There are incredible tools, tricks, and shortcuts in each of the major Office applications that can resolve complex problems in seconds, if you only know how to use them. In this session, we'll handle formatting, layout, and even the dreaded 'dirty data.'

Topics include:
  • Using Styles and Style Sets to control Word formatting
  • Leveraging Section Breaks for document layout issues
  • Creating macros in Word to automate clean-up
  • Tackling problematic data with Flash Fill
  • Crushing exhausting requests with Power Query
  • Using Tables for automatic updating of data analysis
  • Controlling presentations with Slide Masters and Slide Layouts
  • Implementing a standard color scheme across the Office Suite
  • Converting exhaustive lists into engaging graphics
Understanding Microsoft 365: An Overview of Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive
In the modern environment, Microsoft has introduced a full cloud suite called Microsoft 365 to match our daily productivity needs. The first step is to understand how this suite was designed, and which applications should be used for specific scenarios. In this session, we help you understand how to leverage Microsoft 365 effectively.

Topics include:
  • Understanding and creating Microsoft 365 Groups
  • Defining the use cases for Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive
  • Leveraging the partnership between Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive
  • Creating and integrating additional collaborative tools
