If you have had to save a Word Document as a PDF you likely have these steps memorized: Navigate to File, selecting Save As, finding the Folder Path, search through the File types for PDF, select PDF and click Save.

Good news is there is a better way using VBA! The Word Quick PDF macro saves the Active Word Document as a PDF with one click! By default, the new PDF is saved to the Folder Path of the Active Word Document. The Word Quick PDF macro provides a consistent result each and every time it is run. The potential to make a mistake is eliminated when using this Word macro. The traditional way to save a document as a PDF results in 5-6 clicks on average. You can turn this to only 1 click after installing the Word Quick PDF macro. Those that move information the best on their computers WIN!

Outlook Send Same Email to Different Recipients | VBA Macro #31

To BCC or to not BCC?  That is the question that comes to mind when emailing a variety of different recipients.  This is especially important if you are working with multiple clients.  You can BCC recipients so they can’t click reply all. Recipients won’t see who was emailed but that is actually the problem.  The value is knowing who was emailed so customers know if additional follow-up is needed.  Instead you can CC recipients but once someone hits Reply All the conversation can get out of control.  This can create a bigger problem if the email thread is across multiple parties. Sending separate emails creates more value for the customer but how do you do this efficiently and effectively? You could create new emails do a lot of copying and pasting but this isn’t a sustainable process. Good news is there is always a better way with VBA! Our new Outlook macro makes sending the same email to different recipients so easy!
