TechTalk Recordings – Excel and Gmail

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

Excel is a powerful platform with many productivity-enhancing features. The trouble is that most of us use only a small percentage of the features available because finding and learning them takes time. Plan to invest 15 minutes to watch the recording of this TechTalk (http://go.augsburg.edu/ttexcel) led by LFC Nathan Lind to learn a few quick tips and tricks that will help you take better advantage of what Excel has to offer.

Also, here is a link to the previous TechTalk on Gmail:

Check out the link below for some more TechTips, and feel free to suggest topics for future TechTalks!
