Ready for a Microsoft Project Webinar? We are! It's been a while since we've done an Introduction to Project Webinar, so we're scheduling it for September 11th at 2:00 (eastern). We'll cover the basics of creating a project schedule, adding tasks and resources, changing views, saving baselines, and viewing progress.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our Arcade Party at Quarter Up yesterday, there were over 60 of us having a great ol' time playing all the classic arcade games. We also had bowling challenges, air hockey competitions, shootouts, and of course Bob on the Asteroids machine.
Do you need a quick and easy tool to manage small projects and tasks? Microsoft Planner is for you.
Planner provides an easy to use interface in the form of cards and lists. You can organize them however you want, assign deadlines and people to tasks, upload files, and just keep yourself and your team organized.
Check out the recording of Bob's webinar on "Stealing your Office Credentials." It's a half hour overview of the more insidious ways the bad guys are getting into our data and applications. Well-formed emails sent to unsuspecting end users conning them into sharing their Office 365 credentials.
Congratulations Jeff Buskirk, for putting up with us here at Simplex-IT for 5 YEARS! Jeff has been a Network and Systems Administrator with Simplex-IT since 2013 (I did the math for ya, you're welcome ;-)) You can read all about Jeff on our team page at: www.
Hey everyone, Patti here to tell you about our first golf outing sponsorship experience! Simplex-IT sponsored the beverage cart at the Stow-Monroe Falls Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing Last Friday (6/22) at Fox Den Golf Course in Stow. The weather was looking a little unpredictable that day, so we didn't know what to expect.
Are you feeling a little unorganized lately? Got notes and procedures and post-its all over the place? Then you need OneNote! OneNote is basically an E-Notebook, similar to a 3-ring binder you may have at your desk. You can add sections, pages, and a variety of items to the pages such as plain text, numbered or bulleted lists, images/photos, graphics, even videos, and completely customize it to fit your needs.
The bad guys have a new way to make your Office 365 account send malware to all of your contacts without you ever knowing. The way it works is actually pretty simple.
And here’s the fun part. Most anti-virus tools won’t catch it. Spam filters don’t do a great job, either.
Project Online is a great tool for managing projects, and it's easier to set up and use than you might think (and Patti can help you with that.) It provides project managers a place to enter all the work that needs done on a project, as well as allocate resources, time, and budget.
What’s your role at Simplex-IT and when were you hired?
Officially, Technology Director. That translates to both direct support to our customers and then long term strategic decisions for Simplex-IT. I was hired in May 2010.
What’s a typical day like for you at work?
There are no typical days, every day is different!
What has been your favorite project at Simplex-IT?
Nothing specific but generally speaking it’s our onboarding projects.
