FindTime for Outlook

One of my major irritations with the whole calendar and scheduling business is receiving an invitation to a time when I’m already busy. If said invitation is from an internal person this is utterly unforgiveable as my free / busy time (and appointment subjects) is available for all to see… therefore they have just not bothered and have adopted the “well I’m free at that time” mentality. Decline. If the invitation comes from an external it’s a different mat

When I joined Microsoft nearly five years ago (wow, that’s gone quick) I was presented with a technology survival kit on my first day. A Lenovo laptop, a Windows Phone, and a set of Jabra wired headphones. The headphones were necessary (they still are) because there’s almost no desk phones in Microsoft – your PC is your phone, courtesy of Lync… sorry, Skype for Business. The laptop has been replaced (Dell XPS 12, and a Surface Pro 3), and the original HTC phone has long

Following on from the general blog post about Office 2016, this is the first of a few* which will focus on some specific features. * Actual number to be decided. We’re going to peak early, because the first of these is the best… Outlook 2016 modern attachments. This topic gets me thinking about presentations I have provided in the past, and my mantra was something along the lines of “don’t e-mail file attachments to me”. It may also have included threats of violent behaviour. In a form

Microsoft Office 2016
Tue, Sep 29th 2015 11:58a   Darren Adams
I’m sure most IT people were aware that Office 2016 shipped last week, but publically it didn’t arrive in much of a blaze of publicity. Certainly there was enough coverage in the computer press and online (well, most online I guess) but it didn’t garner the amount of attention seen with Windows 10 or anything that Apple release. Updates to Office are an interesting beast. When I started at Microsoft (June 2011) Office 2010 was the current version. It looked very different to 2007, and ther

If you’re fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to be one of my Facebook friends, you’ll probably be aware that a few times a week I post a map with a route marked out on it. And even the least technical of people will know that this indicates that someone has either run along that route, or cheated by traversing it sitting down on a bicycle (only joking cyclists). You may also be aware that I’ve shrunk over the past two years – not in height (still 5 foot 11 inches, or 1.8 m

Ten great Windows 10 features
Wed, Jul 15th 2015 7:37a   Darren Adams
A few weeks ago, us Microsoft employees in the UK were invited to submit ‘ten great Windows 10 features’ in order to be in with a chance to win a Windows 10 goody bag. I was a lucky winner. I’ve updated my main work laptop (Dell XPS 12) to Windows 10, and also my Dell 8-inch tablet. I’m doing the Surface Pro 3 this weekend, but I’ll probably leave my home PC (Dell XPS 27) until the actual release date of Windows 10 on 29th July – I’ll take the free upgra
