Matching header rows in your spreadsheets

Explore Monday Productivity Pointers at lynda.com.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Monday Productivity Pointers! This week I’m covering a great skill to know: how to migrate data between two apps with minimal headaches, by using an Excel spreadsheet. Hint: It’s all about the header column labels.

In the first video, I’ll show you how to make sure you’re correctly matching up the header row of column labels on your Excel spreadsheet for a smooth data import. And just in case you don’t know the column labels in the app you’ll be importing your data into, I’ll show you a great trick for finding out.

Migrating to a new computer: Monday Productivity Pointers

Using Ninite to migrate computers.

Explore Monday Productivity Pointers at lynda.com.

When you get a new computer, you might spend a few hours downloading your favorite apps, installing them, and restarting the computer after the install. This can be a real time killer when you just want to get started and get your work done.

The first video in this week’s Monday Productivity Pointers focuses on an app for the PC that makes transitioning to a new computer a breeze. The app is called Ninite, and it’s free. With a few mouse clicks, you choose the apps you want to install, and Ninite creates one installer that contains all the apps you chose. Because it’s a cloud solution, you can always be sure you’re installing the latest version of each app.
