Coming current...


By Tuesday, August 9, all of our desktop computers will be outfitted with Microsoft Office 2016. It’s a bit of a leap—to go from Office 2010 to Office 2016 all at once. But just think: We all will be using the same (read: latest) versions of Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint as much of the rest of the world.

Please help our IT team make this happen: Leave your PCs on each day when you leave the office on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

We will be installing Office 2016 on all workstations beginning this Thursday and continuing through Sunday. Office 2010 will stay on your PC until Tuesday, August 9, so you aren’t left stranded in the event there are issues with the installation on your machine.

And yes, your default settings in Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint will transfer to Office 2016!

Fun new features

With the current version of Microsoft Office come some fun new features. Check out the Recent-documents feature in Outlook, additional chart styles in Excel or the new Tell Me feature across all Office 2016 applications that lets you type a few words and get the exact one-click link to the feature or  tool you want to use.

Want to know even more about Office 2016? See the Quick Start Guides to Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. If you have questions or concerns these guides don’t answer, please send them our way at

Meantime, the new shortcuts coming to the desktop nearest you…
