Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.


Tue 14 Aug 2007, 08:59 AM
I am working on a free series of How To articles about using the productivity editors with Notes 8.  I could really use examples of how you use Office products, particularly word processors, spreadsheets and presentation editors.  For example, mail merge seems to be a very popular topic, so I have included that.  Another seems to be pivot tables for simple on the fly reports, so I have included that.  But what else?  What do you automate, what do you do manually that you wish you could automate, and what do you do manually that you want to do manually with the productivity editors as easily (or more) than you do with Microsoft Office?

Aside from that, does anybody have any suggested or requested topics for the How To articles?  I know there is a lot of interest in the productivity editors, but I don't know what level of information people want right now, whether feature comparisons or programmatic examples or whatever.  

<disclaimer>Since I am also in the middle of working on OpenSesame, any ideas given here may also be fodder for features or demos that I will use in that product.</disclaimer>
