This blog will share some examples of the things you can do with options and settings.  Hopefully these “golden nuggets” will encourage you to explore other options and settings that you might find helpful to you.Read More

Bio

“I was born in Texas, but have spent most of my life around the Kansas City area.  After graduating high school and being blessed with a daughter, Rhian, I decided to join the Air Force and train as an Air Traffic Controller.  I worked in the aviation industry for over 10 years, both as a military Non-Commissioned Officer for the Air Force and as a civilian Air Traffic Controller for the Federal Government.  I’ve spent time in many different regions of the United States as well as time overseas in Germany, Iraq, and Qatar.  Down the road, I would like to end up in Austin, Texas to be close to my brother and some other family.Read More

Centriq Training Student of the Month

Bio

“I was born and raised in Kansas City and attended high school in Oak Grove, MO.  Prior to coming to Centriq, I was a Line Cook and Receiver Supervisor at a gourmet grocery store named Dean and Deluca, located in the heart of Leawood.  I worked my way up at Dean and Deluca over my four years of employment there.  However, I realized wasn’t going to be able to grow financially in the way I wanted to by working in the food industry, so I decided to leave Dean and Deluca.  Growing up, I always had a strong passion for technology.  I built my first computer in the 8th grade and obtained a few IT certifications in high school. My passion for technology is what made me decide to go to Centriq.Read More

Fantastic Functions in Excel

Fantastic Functions in Excel

August 4, 2017 in Microsoft Office, Corporate IT Training / by Craig Gerdes

With hundreds of functions available in Excel in multiple categories, it is nearly impossible for any one person to know how to use all of the functions.

As you may already know Excel functions are grouped into several categories including financial, logical, text, date/time, lookup and reference, math, statistical, engineering, cube, and of course, several others including the basic AutoSum functions.Read More

Why IT Departments Need to Integrate SharePoint Into Their Workflows

Why IT Departments Need to Integrate SharePoint Into Their Workflows

August 3, 2017 in Microsoft, Corporate IT Training / by Sara Lamb

Today’s IT departments often find themselves pigeonholed by accessibility – both in terms of employees’ standard capacity to access documents and applications, and in the greater scope of making technology available to individuals with permanent, temporary, or situational accessibility needs.

In both respects, Microsoft SharePoint is leading the way towards creating a powerfully accessible digital office workspace. SharePoint users enjoy a unified, secure platform for employee data access.Read More
