For those of you who aren't following Mac Mojo, the MacBU team blog, or following us on twitter @officemac, you've been missing out on a chance to win a customised colour Macbook and a copy of Office:Mac 2011 when it's released. We're asking a series of questions in our blog about your usage of Office:Mac. Respond to us on twitter, or post a comment to one of the relevant threads in Mac Mojo, and you're entered into the contest (and make sure you read the rules for the contest while you're there, too!). The latest question is this:
This week we want to hear how Office for Mac helps you regularly stay on task. From the frequent requests that land in your email inbox, to the ongoing projects that you are working to wrap up – Office for Mac helps us stay productive. So for this contest question, we want to know: “What’s on your current Office for Mac to-do list?” Let us know how you are using Office for Mac to get things done!
I'm not eligible to enter the contest, but I'll answer anyway. For me, keeping on top of things is almost exclusively managed through Outlook:Mac.
Make sure that you share your answers at Mac Mojo -- sharing your answer here doesn't enter you into the contest! I don't mind if you comment here too, but if you want the Macbook and Office:Mac 2011, you've got to post in Mac Mojo or respond to @officeformac on Twitter. Now go forth and share your productivity secrets!
(Speaking of twitter, you can follow me here, but be warned that I don't just talk about Office:Mac stuff!)
 Random trivia: that picture of the Macbook was taken in the little nook that I often use as my office when I'm in Redmond. In fact, here's a picture I took of that nook when I was using it on an earlier trip to the mothership this year.
I believe there may be another thread about this, but I would love to see OneNote for Mac... I was a Windows user since version 1 in the early '90s and made the switch to Mac about 3 years ago now. Tried Office for Mac and that drove me right into the arms of VMWare Fusion to be able to run Office for Windows once again... Even in a VM Office for Windows runs faster than Office for Mac natively... I'm very exited about the 2011 version for Mac from the previews I've seen - it seem to follow more of the Office for Windows conventions.
This brings me to the second big wish for the Mac version... use the same keyboard shortcuts for Mac that you use for Windows. Not being able to hit F4 in Excel Mac to make cell references absolute was killing me, or CTRL-1 to format cells. Or at least have a "switch" in the config somewhere, Windows switchers can stick with the habits they know (as I'm sure the Office for Mac natives want to keep the shortcuts they know and love).

The actual situation is shameful!
