Course Description

As a temporary measure to keep our learners safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, this course is being run remotely. Our educators have created an interactive, online course using video streaming software.

Adjust settings and permissions to display others' calendars, assign delegates, use signature and voting options in messages, use merge to automate and personalize large mailings, and archive effectively without fear of losing your data. Electronic course manual (pdf) included.
