Spreadsheets are amazing, powerful tools. They can do anything—almost anything, at least. But wouldn't it be great if they could do that one extra thing you've always wanted—if they could remove extra rows or look up research data or translate text automatically? For years, Excel has been one of the most popular spreadsheets, partly for its own features but partly for the extra tools you can add to it.
The internet doesn't always just work. Try as you might to connect, sometimes airport and hotel Wi-Fi networks won't let you get online or they limit you to just one connection—and, if you're anything like me, your home and office internet always seems to go out at the worst time possible. Don't fret. Odds are, you have a backup internet connection in your pocket.
Team chat's the new email inbox and water-cooler all in one, the place where you chat about random things, share important news with your team, and discuss your project ideas in wide-ranging conversations. Then it's time to actually get work done, so you switch apps and write your project proposals, schedule events, plan projects, code, design, and more in your other productivity apps. Or, you could chat and get work done at the same time in Microsoft Teams, one of the newest team chat apps.
@melaniepinola this is the problem of Twitter—no time to edit and think about things before hitting "Tweet".
Should have been "One of the most annoying things...". Pretty sure I could find another half-dozen if I wanted to make a list :P
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
