Find Your Microsoft Office Answers Here

We use powerful programs every day.
But are we using them powerfully?

Do you have a task ahead of you, but are not quite sure how to use your computer to go about it? It may be a table you are searching in Excel, or a video that is too long in PowerPoint, or a
PivotTable you need to look at in a different way….

Or perhaps you would simply like to learn more ways to use our
Microsoft Office programs, such as Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Project, OneNote, Visio, Access….

The Microsoft Office Training Center is the answer for you.

You can ask a question in plain English by typing into the Search box in the upper right corner, or you can explore the Training Roadmaps in each program area. Even if you don’t see the version of the program you are using*, use the training roadmaps as a guide to direct you on a learning path in your version.

Remember too, the Technology Training Options page on the
Learning & Development site for other options.

*Office 2010 is the version of Microsoft Office installed by default with the Windows 7 Standard Operating Environment.  Office 2010 is gradually being upgraded to Office 2013 as part of the Skype for Business rollout.

Attach Document To Email from Jump List

When you are emailing a document you have recently viewed, use this quick shortcut to skip having to find the document in its folder.

To do this we will use Windows’ Jump List feature (which is
a great shortcut to documents).

  1. Create the email message in Outlook
  2. Right-click the relevant program icon in the Taskbar
    eg, if it is a recently viewed Word document that you wish to email, right-click the Word program icon in the Taskbar
    – A list of references to recently opened files displays (this is a “Jump List”)
  3. Drag the document reference from the Jump List and drop it on the email (don’t worry – it will not be removed from the Jump List)
    – The document is attached to the email

Copyright Management Project update

The Copyright Management Project work is progressing well.

All academic departmental heads have been contacted about the provision of material outside Learn and how to maintain copyright compliance. Library staff are now working directly with selected academics to make sure their content is provided to students via Learn and in a copyright compliant way.

New copyright guidance instructions are available: http://library.canterbury.ac.nz/teach/e-linking-module/index.html

This provides step by step instructions on how to provide copyright material within Learn, plus background and further help.

Copyright FAQs have also been updated: http://library.canterbury.ac.nz/teach/faq.shtml

Work has begun on creating the required functionality to make sure reporting to Copyright Licensing New Zealand (CLNZ). It is expected this will be tested and released in March.
