When we've been working in the same role for a while, we develop habits around the software we use for certain things. I bet you don't even really think about it - you just open Word, Excel or PowerPoint and crack on. Have you ever stopped to think, 'how else could I use it?'
We all know Word is great for letters and reports, but what else is everyone using it for?
Manuals with contents and indexes that link to the information you need
Creating a suite of corporate branded templates and documents
Creating newsletters and mailshots
Using mail merge to address envelopes
Using mail merge to send emails
Dictating your thoughts and having Word type them
Creating and editing pictures and graphics
Collaborating on drafts using track changes or drawing tools
Using the built-in templates when you don't know where to start
Creating marketing materials, labels, calendars, menus, CVs, and anything that could be on paper!
