By default, when you create a new Contact in outlook, it will be filed Last name, “First name, Last name”. Some prefer to file their contacts by first name. If this setting is not the same in all of your contacts, it can make it difficult to search for, and find, a specific contact. This setting can be changed in Outlook.
There may be times when a number (or result of a calculation) has more than two decimal places. You can tell excel to display only 2 decimal places, but the full number with all the decimal places will be displayed when you click on an individual cell. There is a way to get the worksheet to convert the number to 2 decimal places and round up.
Utilizing color coding for appointments in your calendar will allow you to see your priorities and important appointments at a glance. Recommended minimum categories/colors: Boulders-Dark Orange (must do tasks & projects) Rocks–Yellow (Things you do to keep things running) Sand–default color (quick & easy, non-crucial: ex: Sub categorizing Sent e-mails, etc.)
You can change the time increments shown in your Outlook calendar to allow for smaller more detailed calendar entries.
Adding an additional time zone in Outlook can be extremely helpful if you are working on a project for a customer who is located in a different time zone.
