Outlook 2011 Tutorial Provides a Video Guide to Mac Productivity

in Tips and How To (E)

[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Training company Infinite Skills has just released a new Outlook 2011 Tutorial Video series, designed to specifically help Mac users with the popular email and organization software. The 48-tutorial training package is led by professional software trainer Guy Vaccaro, and it includes lessons on topics ranging from message filtering to setting custom tasks, alerts and appointments.

"After years of Entourage and Apple-only solutions, many Mac users may have forgotten what Outlook can really do," said Colin Boyd, sales director of Infinite Skills. "But the fact is, no other email and organization software is better suited for the professional world, and these hands-on tutorials cover all the functionality that makes this true."

After familiarizing viewers with the basics of the Outlook user interface, instructor Guy Vaccaro goes through the primary points of Outlook configuration and customization, helping users import their contacts and data from other applications and set up Outlook to send and receive messages using their existing email accounts. Next, the Outlook 2011 tutorials go through email essentials, advanced tips and filter settings and then the program's range of appointment, meeting and notes functionality.

The tutorials utilize a real-time video presentation format that shows techniques and tasks performed within the Outlook 2011 interface, with a built-in set of playback controls that allow the viewer to pause, rewind or fast-forward through the training at any point. While the course is organized into logical classroom-style sections, lessons may also be viewed independently in any order desired.

"Outlook for Mac offers several full featured tools wrapped into one program, and that's really what separates it from Apple Mail and other competitors," said Chris Johns, content specialist for Infinite Skills. "These tutorials closely look at the program's features and show you how they can be used in an office or commercial environment, which happens to be Guy's specialty."

Tutorial author Guy Vaccaro has more than 15 years of experience offering in-person software training services to small businesses and corporations throughout the United Kingdom. In addition to Microsoft Outlook, Guy is an expert level user of database software and each application in the Microsoft Office suite. It's this broad background that makes the tutorials especially helpful for viewers wanting to boost workflow efficiency, Johns said.
