October 2006 Efficiency Newsletter

Technology does not create productive people. We do.

SET’s proposal generators have been a huge success! We've been helping a lot of companies by placing tools in their Microsoft Word proposals that ensure the consistency of their formatting (regardless of who works with them). This enables companies to focus on the content of their proposals without worrying about the formatting. It saves a lot time, and we tend to make the proposals look a bit nicer in the process, too!

Tip of the Month

Multiselecting Date in Outlook

Are you available to meet on October 17th, 24th, or the 2nd of November? To answer that question, you may have to click on each date in Microsoft Outlook, and then click on each date again to decide which one is best. Depending on how busy you are (and how important it is to get together with me), you may even click through the dates a couple more times to decide on the ideal date. Stop right there. Here's how you can make this process faster.

You can look at all three dates at once by clicking on the first date– say, the 17th. Then hold down the Ctrl key and click on the other two (or more) dates. Now you'll have all three dates (which are at various times of the month) displayed neatly in front of you!

Tool of the Month

Try out Wikipedia

If you haven't tried out Wikipedia, you should. It's an encyclopedia edited by regular people with (often) very accurate information on anything you can think of, from supply and demand to shoe polish, and from Anne Frank to Miles Davis. If there's ever a topic that comes up in a meeting or general conversation about which you're curious to know more, this is a great place to find a thorough discussion.
