LAST FOR 2017

This month’s productivity tips are focused around searching:

  1. Outlook – searching for an email with a specific subject line
  2. Word – searching for the old search dialog box
  3. Excel – searching with advance options
  4. OneNote – how to be selective in what you are searching

Outlook

Last week a client was searching for an email and getting a little frustrated as there were many folders (and emails) to search, and I noticed she was not using some useful little tricks.  So here is a couple for you to try:

 

In the search field I’m sure you usually just type in what you are searching for, and wait for the results to show.  Well, there are a few commands you can type in here to make the search more specific, such as:

 

Notice I put “subject:” in front of both words in the second example.  Whereas in the first example I had “subject:” in front of the first word only, therefore the first email matched – why?  Because “Session” was in the body of the email.

 NB: The OR must be in uppercase to work.

Word

Have you wanted to work with the old search dialog box - but when you press [Ctrl + F] Word launches the Search Navigation.  Well, try:

 pressing [Ctrl + H]  This will show à

 then click on the [Find] tab and you are in business!

 

Excel

Excel also as a Search (and Find) capability which can be activated by pressing either [Ctrl + F] or [Ctrl + H] (same as Word) which will launch the Find and Replace dialog box.  The trick here is that if you would like to refine your search, click on the [Options] button and you will be prompted with all sorts of goodies

I have been doing a lot of work in OneNote over the last couple of months and I’m impressed with it.  Since I’m making the theme of this newsletter searching, I think you will be impressed with OneNote’s ability to search.

So, here are 2 shortcut keys that help you search for information:

  • [Ctrl + F]               .. will search the current page, whereas
  • [Ctrl + E]               .. will search the current section (of your current notebook)

 

Christmas time – I would like to thank you for using my small business this year and I look forward to supporting you (and your team) in 2018.  Please stay safe and healthy enjoying yourself over the Christmas break.
