Good Morning Everyone,

Hope that you all enjoyed the beautiful spring weekend. This week I've got a powerful spreadsheet function, new updates available in Self Service and a request to make finals week smooth for all!
As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask!

Have a great week and enjoy the festival!

SU Tips and Tricks

Excel and Sheets Function - VLookUp
This is one of the most useful functions you will find in Excel/Sheets.  VLookup allows you to search a spreadsheet for a particular item(text, number, etc...) and pull the information located in corresponding columns. Very handy for finding the information you need fast!  Check out the link for a hands-on demonstration of this powerful function.
Updates in Self Service
If you use an SU provided MacBook, you can now update to OS X Mavericks through Self Service. Go ahead and log in to Self Service and run the update to the latest and greatest.(Note this takes awhile, so allocate some time) Also, while you are in there, please run the updates for Flash and Java that are found in the featured section. This will help keep you safe and secure as you browse the net.
A Bright Idea Before Finals Week
If students haven't been on campus for awhile and will be returning for finals week, please remind them to log into Bb or WebAdvisor to make sure they can access SU services.  They may also need to connect to 1SU if they haven't been on campus since the switch over. This will help make finals week a smoother process for all!
