Outlook 2013 Advanced Course: Introduction

This course is designed for experienced Outlook users who need to customize their environment, calendar and E-Mail messages to meet their specific requirements.

Outlook 2013 Advanced Course :Course Outline

The first thing we check at work in the morning is Outlook and the last thing we check before we leave is Outlook. During the day one is in and out of Outlook, sending mail, receiving mail and checking on tasks. But Outlook can do so much more than just send an email, Outlook 2013 has an improved interface and a new ribbon and many more features for your mail and your calendar than previous versions. We invite participants to attend the Outlook 2013 advanced workshop presented by us which like all our computer workshops is a practical workshop where students can practice what they learn on computers. Some of the objectives of this workshop are: Formatting messages and using message enhancements; customising the message list; customising junk mail settings; using advanced calendar tasks; printing from Outlook and using advanced task features. We begin the workshop with working with messages. Participants will learn to format messages and pictures, fonts and paragraphs. In this module we also look at styles and themes and how to apply them to messages. Lastly we will teach participants to insert pictures and screenshots. Some people find it necessary to customise their profile and add a signature to the bottom of messages. This is a helpful tool when one deals with hundreds of emails in a day – adding a greeting and your name can get old very quickly. Another helpful tool is categorising messages to stay organised. One is not held ransom by the Inbox, the user can customise their inbox to include whatever category they want; for example you could make a newsletters category and move all your newsletters there to read at your leisure when you have the time. There are some advanced features that participants will learn, such as the voting buttons and how to set the message priority.TIP: Use categories to colour code your appointments, messages, notes and tasks. To give yourself a guaranteed headache, try to manage your junk mail. But it need not be so bad, Outlook can filter certain types of messages and send them to the junk mail folder. Outlook also disables links in suspicious messages for your safety. The junk tool on the ribbon allows you to block suspicious domains, or to enable a sender and mark the message as not junk. A great tool to have is the ‘phishing’ filter, the filter evaluates messages for suspicious links and fake addresses. We move on to advanced calendar tasks and in addition to teaching participants colour-coding task and the other calendar options we also teach students to create additional calendars, which is very useful so that everything isn’t stored on the same calendar like birthdays for example. Notes could be one of the most underused features in Outlook, where it is in actual fact a useful tool, we will show participants how to use the feature, how to open the notes folder; how to create a note and how to edit a note. Notes can also be colour-coded. In module nine we look at RSS feeds in detail and in module ten we get into printing and the printing options available in Outlook. We end off our workshop with an important module on managing data. That means performing advanced maintenance on folders, including archiving. 1. Introduction
