Utilising keyboard shortcuts will enable to you save time when performing tasks on your computer, allowing you to be more productive. Here are some of the less commonly used shortcuts that are really worth knowing!
1). Seamless coordination with the tools you already know
Office 365 works seamlessly with the programs you already know and use, including Outlook, Word, Excel, OneNote, Publisher and PowerPoint. These tools provide the same great features you rely on as well as powerful capabilities in Office 365. With multiple subscription levels in Microsoft Office 365, you can see if others are editing the document you’re using, synchronise documents with your desktop, broadcast PowerPoint presentations, and check documents in and out of your online document library.
2). Anytime, anywhere access
Microsoft Office 365 provides web-enabled access to email, important documents, contacts, and calendar on almost any device. It frees you to work where and when you choose, letting you respond to important requests right away, from almost any location. With the ability to access email and documents from your mobile device, you don’t need to hurry to the office or look for a WiFi hot spot for your Laptop/PC.

3). Easily communicate and collaborate inside and outside your organisation

1). Enable WiFi Assist
WiFi is something that sucks a ton of battery from your iPhone. The problem is your iPhone usually desperately tries to hold onto a WiFi signal - even when it’s only got one bar. This will rapidly drain your battery. To prevent this, enable WiFi Assist on your iPhone. WiFi Assist automatically switches over to your cellular data connection when a WiFi signal gets too low. Just be warned that enabling WiFi Assist will mean you eat through more of your data plan. To enable WiFi Assist, go to Settings > Cellular and toggle the switch next to WiFi Assist to ON.
2). Enable Low Power Mode
Turning on Low Power mode will automatically turn off all but the most needed power sucking features of the iPhone when you hit 20% battery power and then even more at 10%. But many people don’t realise you can enable Low Power Mode at any time, which you should do it you want to conserve battery. To enable Low Power Mode manually, go to Settings > Battery and toggle the switch to ON next to Low Power Mode.
3). Stop your apps making those motion effects
The parallax effect is the name given to the slightly moving icons and notifications in iOS when you move your iPhone. Apple created the parallax effect to give the flat icons some depth. However, as with any process that requires movement, the graphic capabilities needed to do this eats up battery life. To disable this effect, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > and toggle the switch to ON.
4). Turn on Auto-Brightness
Increased screen brightness takes up a ton of battery power. This is because the extra light required to illuminate your screen requires a lot of energy; draining your battery faster. Screens generally require less light in darkness and more light when it’s bright outside. To have your iPhone adjust to external brightness levels automatically go to Settings > Display & Brightness > and toggle the Auto-Brightness switch to ON.
5). Disable Dynamic Backgrounds
Another motion feature in iOS is the dynamic backgrounds. These are the wallpapers that have subtle movement in them. They look cool, but that movement is eating into your precious battery life. It’s best to use a still image for your wallpaper. To get rid of the dynamic images go to Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper and select a wallpaper from the “Stills” selection.
6). Reduce Screen Brightness manually
If Auto-Brightness isn’t doing it for you, you can also set the brightness levels automatically. Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > and reduce the brightness level by adjusting the slider. This will set the maximum value of screen brightness and can do a lot to saving that extra battery charge.
7). Turn Bluetooth Off
The latest iPhones have Bluetooth 4.1, otherwise known as Bluetooth Low Energy, or BLE. And while BLE uses a lot less power than earlier versions of Bluetooth it still takes up power needlessly when you leave it on and don’t intent on connecting to any Bluetooth devices. To quickly switch Bluetooth off simply swipe up from the bottom of any screen in iOS. This will bring up the Control Centre. Tap the Bluetooth button so it turns grey/ black. This disables Bluetooth.
8). Turn Off App Location Services
Location Services allows apps to know where you are based on your GPS or Wi-Fi triangulation. This is handy for a number of apps, but it drains battery power. Also, some apps request your Location Information yet it does you little good (these apps often use it for targeted ads). To save battery go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > and toggle the switch to OFF to turn off all Location Services (not recommended) or toggle individual apps access ON or OFF.
9). Turn "Hey - Siri" Off
Siri is always working in the background as a default on iOS. She’s just sat there waiting for you to speak to her, meaning she’s always using up a little bit of battery in the background. It’s not helpful, especially if you don’t use her, it can also be annoying as sometimes Siri thinks you have said 'hey siri' then you haven't. To turn it off just head into Settings > General > Siri and then toggle the switch to OFF next to Allow "Hey Siri". You can still use Siri you can still do it with the home button.
10). Regularly close Background Apps
When you open an app on your iPhone and then go back to your home screen it can deceiving to think that you have closed the app. However, the app is still running in the background, with some apps this is helpful and required for the app to maintain its purpose, but in most cases, you don't need the app to stay open. The downside of your app staying open is that it's using processing power which drains your battery. To fully close an app so it's not still working in the background, simply go to Home > double press the Home button > place your finger on the app you would like to close and then swipe up to close the app.

It can be daunting seeing news stories of people falling for scam emails and suffering a great financial loss because of it. If you know what to look for, they can be easily avoided. Here are some tips from Millennium on how to spot a scam email...
Tip 1: Never trust the display name
A favorite phishing tactic among cybercriminals is to spoof the display name of an email. Here’s how it works: If a fraudster wanted to spoof the hypothetical brand “Santander” the email may look something like the picture below. Since Santander doesn’t own the domain “secure.com,” DMARC will not block this email on Santander's behalf, even if My Bank has set their DMARC policy for Santander.com to reject messages that fail to authenticate. This fraudulent email, once delivered, appears legitimate because most user inboxes only present the display name. Don’t trust the display name. Check the email address in the header from—if looks suspicious, don’t open the email.
However this tip won't work all the time; often cyber criminals will send their scam emails from what appears to be a legitimate email address, this why it's important to know several different things to look out for, looking at just the email address won't necessarily tell you if it's a fake email.
Tip 2: Look but don't click
Hover your mouse over any links embedded in the body of the email. If the link address looks weird, don’t click on it. If you want to test the link, open a new window and type in the website address directly rather than clicking on the link from unsolicited emails.
Tip 3: Check for spelling mistakes
Brands are pretty serious about email. Legitimate messages usually do not have major spelling mistakes or poor grammar. Read your emails carefully and report anything that seems suspicious.
Tip 4: Analyze the salutation
Is the email addressed to a vague “Valued Customer?” If so, watch out—legitimate businesses will often address you with your first and last name.
Tip 5: Don’t give up personal information
Legitimate banks and most other companies will never ask for personal credentials via email. Don’t give them up. Legitimate banks will also never ask for your PIN number or your full password. You will only ever be asked to give up a few select characters of your password.
Tip 6: Beware of urgent or threatening language in the subject line
Invoking a sense of urgency or fear is a common phishing tactic. Beware of subject lines that claim your “account has been suspended” or your account had an “unauthorized login attempt.”
Tip 7: Don’t click on attachments
Including malicious attachments that contain viruses and malware is a common phishing tactic. Malware can damage files on your computer, steal your passwords or spy on you without your knowledge. Don’t open any email attachments you weren’t expecting.
