Good Morning Everyone,

If you have any questions, let me know.

SU Tips and Tricks

Sorting and Filtering in Excel
If you work with large data sets in Excel, sorting and filtering can be your best friend.  These two functions allow you to manipulate your information to display in a manner that makes sense. Sorting allows you to rearrange your data alphabetically, numerically, and even by color. Filtering allows you cut out just what you want to see in your data so that you don't feel overwhelmed by a 5,000 row spreadsheet.  If you want to learn more about these two useful tools, click the links below.

Send and Save Files to Drive in the Gmail App
With the most recent version of the Gmail App on iOS and Android, you now have the ability to send and save files using Google Drive.  That means that if you work on your mobile device, you now have the ability to do a lot more with files while on the go.  Check out the link for more information on this handy update.
Google Hangouts Update
Just as a quick FYI, Google Hangouts no longer requires Google+ for video conferences.  Now anyone at SU can join or create a video chat with up to 15 people. Participants will be able to chat as well as screen share with other parties in the hangout.  Google+ is still required for other features like Google Drive integration and Hangouts on Air. Go ahead and click the link to check out Hangouts and see how you can use it to stay productive!
