  • Blog Post: Officelabs and the search tab for Office 2007

    Every day on the blogsphere (I hate that word) I see one topic of discussion come up a lot.  I have talked about it often too - how to make the transition to the new UI.  There is good debate to be had about why we needed to make this switch from the traditional menus but at the same time take...
  • Blog Post: Jensen shows off his new fluent look

    The UI god (and thoroughly nice bloke) that is Jensen Harris has put together a new demo video that shows off the new Microsoft Office Fluent User Interface including "the ribbon". Apart from the annoying lift music backing track which made me want to either smash something do some embarrassing...
  • Blog Post: Blogcast: Protect and manage content

    I must confess I was a bit hungover when I recorded this one so I do suggest you run it speeded up (ctrl-shift-G) to cut down my pause for thought gaps. This really is a very important topic so I apologise for not sounding more exuberant while demoing it. In this blogcast I cover a bit more of the security...
  • Blog Post: Better decisions faster: Blogcast demo

    Continuing my series of blogcast demos, this week I am talking about business intelligence , showing how customers can derive more value from their data and turn information into insight. Things I cover in this demo: Report Center in SharePoint Server Webparts in SharePoint Server Excel services, publishing...
  • Blog Post: Project Collaboration demo blogcast

    Here is my latest demonstration: project collaboration . What I'm showing is the common scenario of a few people just wanting to work together on a project and get more from Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and some of the desktop applications. I go through: Creating a team workspace Using simple...
  • Blog Post: Blogcast: my launch demo

    For the launch of Exchange Server 2007, Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system, I put together this demo and have been hawking it round pretty much every event since (well that's just good reuse right?). This demo required a fair amount of stuff installed on the virtual PC including Exchange...
  • Blog Post: Blogcast: Tagging in the 2007 Office authoring experience

    Renewing my commitment to recording the demos that I find myself doing frequently, I've recorded this one about tagging. We used to talk about metadata as the term for this - that is data about data - but I've noticed that people now refer to it as tagging, what with the rise in "folksonomies" such as...
  • Blog Post: Blogging tools OneNote and SharePoint Server 2007

    Blogging tools are all over the news today with the release of the new Microsoft blogging tool, Microsoft Windows Live Writer which is now in beta. The tool is really great. I am really impressed by it. You just put in the URL to your blog and does the rest. The editor seems to create a WYSIWYG post...
  • Blog Post: Blogcast: Outlook 2007 (14mins)

    In this blogcast I demo some of the new features of Outlook 2007. In particular I look at how it can consume RSS feeds and show off some of the great integration with SharePoint Server 2007 as well. Also have a look at the OneNote 2007 blogcast which shows further Outlook integration. If you watch...
  • Blog Post: Blogcast: OneNote 2007

    I've been meaning to record a OneNote 2007 demo for a while so here it is. OneNote 2007 is a very important application now in Office. You will see it is included in both the Home and Student Edition and in the Enterprise Edition . It really is a very sophisticated product with superb integration with...
  • Blog Post: Blogcast: Intro to the Office 12 user interface

    Sometimes its better to show than to tell so I thought I'd have a go at recording one of my demos of the new user interface in Office 12. It is recorded with only 16 colours so it will look a lot nicer in real life. I'm attaching the spreadsheet that I used in the excel 12 demo in case you have beta...
