How well do you know the Office desktop apps? 70 min of tips & ideas to wow your co-workers

There's more to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote than what immediately meets the eye.

In this session, we're not learning the basics - we're learning the lesser-known gems and useful tools tucked away inside these common apps. We'll cover topics including image background removal, small app settings that make a big difference, cross-app integrations, illustrations vs images, Rehearse with Coach, and much, much more.

Note: This will be based on the Microsoft 365 version (not 2019 or earlier) of the Office desktop apps. While there will be some cross-over, there are features that will be covered that are exclusive to the most up-to-date version.

Whether you're using lists in Microsoft Lists or in SharePoint, you may have noticed that not all column types are shown as options when adding columns via the modern UI. Calculated columns and lookup columns are quite impressive and powerful but they take a couple extra clicks to configure.

In this session, we'll explore both column types, when and how to use them, and you'll leave with a reference guide including many formulas across several categories to get you started.

Goodbye, TwoNote - A OneNote refresher

In 2022, OneNote moves from two separate apps (Win 10 and desktop versions) to a single version, based on the desktop version (i.e. OneNote 2016).

In this session we'll reintroduce ourselves to OneNote, learn some exciting tips and tricks along with business use ideas, and discuss what's new and what's coming for OneNote.
