Using Outlook on the Desktop – Friday, March 12, 2 – 3:30 p.m.
Registration: https://newpaltz.wufoo.com/forms/z4do529066mgw4/

Both the Web version of Outlook (the one you access through the newpaltz.edu website) and the Desktop version of Outlook work well for basic emailing and keeping a calendar. However, if you want to do something more advanced, such as scheduling your email to go out at another time, doing a mail merge, etc., you need to use the Desktop version.

We’ll cover the differences between the two versions of Outlook and show you how to use some of the special features that you can only access on the desktop.

Training coming later in March (watch the Daily Digest for announcements):

  • Troubleshooting and Working with IT Support
  • Excel Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts
  • Using OneDrive
  • Counseling & Counseling Memos
  • Tools for Working Remotely

… and more!
