36 Tips For Companies Using Twitter

This is just my opinion, but…

  1. There are no good rules/tips for Twitter, so pretend you never read this.
  2. Be appreciative!
  3. Don’t be a dirtbag or people will unfollow you and block you.
  4. Not everything you try will work. Sometimes it’s because it’s not good and other times it’s because it’s not the right time. But assume most things will fail, being prepared for success.
  5. Be positive. Leave being negative to the people that think they’re smarter than everyone else.
  6. If you ask me to follow you on twitter, I won’t.
  7. Don’t follow and then unfollow people to get new followers (see #1).
  8. Don’t buy Followers. Best case, they will unfollow you and your investment will have been in vain. Worst case, see #1.
  9. Keep in mind that the lists you create in Twitter show up in the URLs of other people’s web logs if you click on those links from the Twitter web page.
  10. Don’t just post links; add something to the... | Read more »

Announcing the “Sway your OneNote love” contest wi...

A month ago, we asked the Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Experts around the world to “Sway your OneNote love.” The MIE Experts were asked to use Sway to bring together their ideas and multimedia that answered one of the following questions:

  1. What do you love about OneNote?
  2. How do you use OneNote to inspire learning?
  3. How do you collaborate with others using OneNote? (MIE Experts, Teachers community, Students)

The OneNote and Sway teams were amazed at the response rate (almost 100 Sways were submitted), variety and clear innovation in use of OneNote in the classroom and Sway to present it. Since Sway is “born on the web” and made to be embeddable, we will let the winners speak for themselves.

OneNote for teachers—training, lesson plans and ne...

As developers of OneNote and the OneNote Class Notebook Creator, we realize that creating exciting products is only the first step towards to making a difference in education. The next steps are to actively train educators on how they can use OneNote in ways that are immediately relevant to their daily school lives and give them the content that serves as a basis for further curriculum generation. The goal behind, a new site developed exclusively for educators is to take a completely new OneNote user and magically turn them into a “OneNote Ninja” in about an hour without any cost to them or their school. Once a teacher masters the OneNote Ninja arts, adding the Bing in the Classroom lesson plans provides a new level of expertise that even Jackie Chan would envy.—... | Read more »

Use a Keystroke to Maximize Finder Windows In OS X

The Maximize jelly in OS X that makes a screen the full size that the screen should be is great. The command that it runs is called Zoom. There’s another one to minimize screens, as well. The minimize has a keystroke mapped of Command-Shift-M. I use it all the time. You can also map a keystroke to make the windows bigger, invoking that Zoom command. Sometimes, when I plug and unplug the monitor on my desk at work at take my laptop home, I end up with windows stuck where the jellies (what those little buttons in the top corner of the screen are called) are above the menu bar and I can’t click them. So the keystroke helps as it basically resizes for me.
To map the keystroke to maximize a screen, first open System Preferences from the Apple menu and open the Keyboard System Preference pane. Then click on the Shortcuts tab and then App Shortcuts in the list of shortcuts. Then click on the + button at the bottom of the list. By default, you’ll see All Applications as the... | Read more »

The Garage Series is now Office Mechanics

The Garage Series for Office 365 brought you the experts and challenged Office 365 productivity literally from anywhere. Starting next week, the Garage Series is shifting gears with a fresh format for the New Year and a brand new show called Office Mechanics.

We are still in the Garage, albeit a brand new one here on the Microsoft campus, which remains a significant place of innovation.
And our mission to keep you informed and entertained with our extreme Office 365 challenges hasn’t changed either… it’s just that now we’ll go even deeper with more demos and in less time as we tour the inner workings of Office. We also go behind the news to provide you with first looks of the latest innovations from the people behind them.
Because shows are around ten minutes in length we try to make it possible to watch when you want, wherever you are, and on any device. Our Office Mechanics blogs will carry additional resources so that you can explore topics covered on the show... | Read more »

When Yosemite has Fallen, and it Can’t Get Up

People are noticing a symptom, branded LoginLockout (credit @andrewrose), where Yosemite seemingly freezes during startup. The keyboard shows caps lock light, no mouse cursor appears, and it could either be during post-FileVault(hereafter referred to as FV2) login, or on a ‘black-screen with white apple’, normal boot. Correlated ingredients for this symptom are 10.10+, AD binding, and possibly FV2. I’ve noticed it on roughly 20% of the computers I’ve migrated, and in some instances a reimage does not clear it – the moment the computer is bound to AD, even with a clean shutdown or without FV2, the progress bar at boot starts stalling at about 1/4 in, and definitely makes no progress when reaching about halfway. You know you’re NOT having the symptom if a mouse cursor appears by about a 1/3rd into the progress bar. We started noticing it on 10.10, and its persisted through 10.10.1.

Save your email attachments to OneDriv...

We’re excited to announce the new Save to OneDrive feature, a simpler way to manage and save your email attachments. This is a feature you’ve been asking for and today we’ve begun rolling it out to all customers worldwide. If you don’t have it yet, please check back over the coming week.
Before cloud storage became popular, some people would email documents to themselves, because they knew they’d be able to log in to their email account and access those documents from anywhere. People still do this today, however, there is an obvious downside—your inbox can get messy quickly and you have to search through ever-increasing email content until you find what you’re looking for.
We’ve made it simpler and tidier to manage these email attachments. When you receive an email with an attachment or group of attachments—documents, pictures, music or videos—you can now save them to OneDrive in just one click.
When you click Save to... | Read more »

Kill Windows Processes In Windows 8

You can gracefully stop Windows processes using the Stop-Process command let. For example, to stop Chrome:
Stop-Process -Name Chrome
Or to stop it by ID. To locate the ID of a process, use get-process:
get-process Chrome
You can then use the -ID operator to stop the process:
Stop-Process -ID 6969
Kill is a command that all Mac and Unix admins know. It’s similar to Stop-Process, except it’s anything but graceful. And you use the -processname option to stop a process:
kill -processname calc

Introducing Send Email in Access 2013 web apps

One of the top feature requests we’ve heard from customers using Access 2013 web apps hosted inside Office 365 is the need to be able to send emails from their apps.

Now you can send emails from your Access 2013 web apps to other members of your organization! Look for this feature in your web apps soon and try it out.

The Final Countdown
New accessibility enhancements for Office Online

When we first built Office Online, we worked hard to make the suite accessible to blind and low vision users by using a new web accessibility standard called WAI-ARIA. While this web standard has allowed Office Online to be usable with a screen reader, we’ve made some further improvements over the past year to provide an even better experience. We are excited to talk about these improvements and have you try them out.
Location and formatting information
Moving around in a document with just text has been straightforward. Now with Narrator enabled, you will hear formatting information read out loud when you use the arrow keys to navigate in a document. Narrator will announce information about lists, tables, headings, and more.
The following video demonstrates the accessibility enhancement for document formatting:

To enable Narrator, press the Windows Key + Enter.

Office 365 news round-up

“Think Globally, Act Locally” became the mantra of the fledgling environmental movement after the first nationwide Earth Day celebration in 1970. The motto was a driving force that represented the impact individuals working in their local communities can have on a global scale.
Many people view the software they use in much the same way. Software has the ability to enhance the productivity of individuals by enabling them to communicate, collaborate and do their work more easily and efficiently every day and when added up can have a bigger global impact. That’s the beauty of Office 365; it is a global product designed to meet the individual needs of billions of people... | Read more »
