1. Wow!! I didn't know Excel could do that

A HUGE and I mean huge pain point in Excel is trying to work with a sheet that has merged cells. ARGH. You know what I mean. You can't sort it. But there is a wonderful solution right under your nose. First highlight the cells you want to unmerge then:
On the home ribbon> Alignment> Merge & Center. Click the drop down arrow and select Unmerge

2. LinkedIn Connected App

Are you a fan of LinkedIn? Hate to check into it everyday, but want to stay up to date with changes in your connections status?

Why not download the free app Linkedin Connected? Each day it will notify you (with a little number on the apps right hand corner) of:

  1. Job changes
  2. Work anniversaries
  3. Birthdays

You can then congratulate them straight from the app.

3. Favourite smartphone camera use tip

Did you see last months newsletter with 29 productivity uses for your smartphone camera?

The feedback rated #no. 27 as the top tip:
Forgotten your reading glasses when you're out to dinner? Take a photo of the menu and zoom in to make your choice. (no one even notices, it looks like you're checking messages)

4. Three life hacks you'll love

  1. Chill wine with frozen grapes so you don't water it down
  2. When writing an email, leave the recipient email field blank until you're ready to send it. This prevents accidental emails.
  3. One of my favourites, ice cold water on the go - fill a water bottle a quarter of the way wirh water, turn it sideways and put it in your freezer. When it's frozen, fill the bottle up with water.

"For eighteen months I've been receiving the Business Tip Newsletter. Each one helps me fine-tune my computer skills and gets me thinking 'how can I do this smarter?'. They're short, punchy and useful - one of the few publications I read in full before filing. Keep up the great work, Debbie!"
