• The Coffee Chat on 365 Adoption Episode 5

    User adoption urban myths

    While at SharePoint Fest, Sarah Haase and I recorded the 5th episode of The Coffee Chat on 365 Adoption series. Our previous episodes have included topics on: Why is user adoption so difficult?

    Add a dictation button to the quick access menu

    I love using tools that enable me to get the job done and move on. One feature that does just that is the dictate function in Microsoft Office. Office Dictation allows me to speak words rather than type them and has sped up the process for creating documents for me. One of the things I’ve noticed slowing me down while using the dictate function has been the need to click the Office Dictate button in the ribbon to start the process. I recently went on Twitter to ask for a shortcut key to start the dictate process. Can we please get a keyboard shortcut for @Office dictation? It would be…
