10 little-known keyboard shortcuts for editing in...

If you use PowerPoint at work or at home, keyboard shortcuts can be a great time saver. Here are some little-known keyboard shortcuts I’ve discovered over the last few years while working on the PowerPoint team. These keyboard shortcuts are designed for PowerPoint for Windows. If you are using PowerPoint for Mac, you can still use them if you replace Ctrl with CMD (⌘) unless stated otherwise. I hope you find these keyboard shortcuts as useful as I have!

Congratulations to JAMF Software!

We at AFP548 would like to congratulate JAMF Software and IBM for their announced collaboration to provide management services to Apple customers all around the world. In one fell swoop, one of the oldest technology companies showed it was serious about supporting Apple’s products, and here’s to the notion that a rising tide lifts all boats.
In commemoration, we’d like to call attention to the great work of Shea Craig for his efforts making the high-traffic areas of Mac management with the Casper Suite easier, from python-jss to jss_helper and of course his engine under the hood of the Linde Group’s AutoPkgr(along with, of course, autopkg itself).

Catalent—pharmaceutical tech company boosts global...

Catalent, a global pharmaceutical technology company, is undergoing a transformation from a collection of 30 semi-autonomous sites to an increasingly productive, cohesive global organization. One reason is that Catalent deployed Microsoft Office 365 to build a faster, more productive and interconnected work environment. Today, employees are using Office 365 communication and collaboration services to drive engagement, expedite clinical trials, improve customer service, and build a competitive advantage.
“Imagine the communications required to organize the 150,000 clinical shipments that we deliver to 80 countries every year, or the coordination required to successfully deliver the 70 billion doses that we manufacture annually. The more seamless the communication and collaboration among global sites, the more we can build our competitive advantage—that’s the value we are getting from Office 365.” —Michael Del Priore, senior vice president and chief information officer at... | Read more »
