I reviewed last weeks tasks learnt. to create labels and manage in-coming emails, also filter emails so new emails are delivered correctly. Today was about re-inforcement of learnt skills, using “setting” and other appropriate features to assist with efficient movement of arriving emails and automatic delivery to selective label addresses. Therefore enhancing better management as emails are self sorted to correct destination. No more laborious manual movement of each email to label.
Today lesson was about mail merging and our sampled by making a small spread sheet information, then sent using mail merge system. once i understood how to input the data using (angle bracket symbols) things became clearer for me.
Can now use that information when sending multiple copy letter.
Job well done! Rick.
Yes! i’d be interested to learn more on spread sheets to help me back into work??
My first day at employability club. We had a huge amount of learning to take on board all within a small time scale. However, the programme is very informative and extremely useful to me going forward for any new venture i become involved in joining.
Looking forward to next weeks session and many thanks to the volunteer who was a huge help.
