Create Recipe Lists and Auto-Populated Emails with Office Quick Parts

I don’t know if I hate it or love it more when I find the product I’ve been using for years has hidden secrets I knew nothing about. I think I love it. I owe this tip to the illustrious Susan Dreschel, who was my unintentional mentor for my first three years as an Instructional Technology Specialist. She has now retired and left me alone, but that’s a subject for another day šŸ™‚

Anyway, just such a hidden treasure exists in both Outlook and Microsoft Word, and it’s called Quick Parts. Did you know that you could have both of those programs save text that you frequently use and spit it back out at your command? Did you know that you could send fully-formed emails with just a click of a button? Or that you could generate your recipes and related shopping list with just a couple clicks as well?

Not only will the tip I’m about to show you save you time, but I also love when the process of giving you the tip is quick. Check out this post on creating your own embed codes if you like quick-to-receive tips.

But now on with the show…if you’re intrigued about Quick Parts, watch the video to learn how to use them.
