For occasional social media users, keeping up with new features can be tricky. Whether we are simply not able to keep up, or that the changes happened subtly, the endpoint here is the same – we are missing out!

Narrowing this down to Facebook, the gargantuan social media network has introduced a few key new features as of late that may have went under your radar. To help you catch up on key added features that you can truly capitalize on, here’s an overview of some new Facebook features that you may have missed out on.

 

NGO on-the-go

Flying out again soon? As exciting as the prospect of another travel opportunity is, there is also that dreaded part regarding the amount of work we are leaving behind. With all that time spent sitting and waiting while in transit, just imagine how much work we could have done then, right? To help you avoid that first-day-back shock, and most of all, to help you remain productive during transit, here are a few travel tips and tricks that you can try out!

Fiscal Year in Review

Like sequels of a movie, we go by the same principle of offering more every time. That said, we always strive hard to find more ways of helping you every new fiscal year (FY), be it through adding new donors, new offers and hey, may even be in reaching new countries.

Have you heard? Microsoft will be making significant changes to all free personal OneDrive accounts by 13 July 2016 – just a few weeks away from today. By then all new free accounts will strictly be limited to a maximum of 5 GB storage, and the previous perks of additional storage (e.g. free 15 GB for camera roll) will be discontinued.

SQL Server is relational database server software offering tools for data storage, management, analysis, and reporting. It can be used as a back-end database server for internal applications or for powering a dynamic website.

You can use this guide to help you find the SQL Server edition and licenses appropriate for your organization's needs.

Is your staff spread across several locations? Do you have a limited budget for IT support like installations and upgrades? Do your staff and volunteers want to do their work on personal devices like smartphones or tablets? Are you tired of maintaining an in-house Exchange server? Then Microsoft Office 365 Nonprofit may be right for you!

Last 13 May 2016, Microsoft Philippines and TechSoup Asia-Pacific had successfully capped off a 2-month long series of virtual events, trainings and conferences that spanned across two cities and has catered to over a hundred or more local NGOs in the Philippines.

Conflict between armed groups and local military troops has continued to plague communities in Mindanao, Philippines. Behind the smoke and crossfire, tens of thousands of Filipinos have perished while hundreds of thousands worth of infrastructure has also been destroyed.  However, what’s worse is that an invaluable amount of opportunities are forever lost in lives of innocent children, as more and more of Mindanao’s youth continue to drop out of school due to fear, to join their kin and raise arms, or worse, as they have already succumbed to the conflict.

End of Fiscal Year

The end of this fiscal year (June 30) is coming in and fast! With a new fiscal year on its way, now is the best time to review, plan and sort out a budget for your ICT needs for the following year.

The end of a fiscal year also signifies the start of a new allotment for donors such as Symantec, Adobe, Bitdefender, Autodesk and Tableau. So, if you have already maxed out on your allowable licenses for these donors, don’t worry, by July 1 you’ll be then able to request for more licenses again!

PowerPoint Image Editing Features

When we say editing photos, would you believe me if I say that there’s a little hidden gem in our computers that can do a few (surprising) features that Photoshop also does?

Thanks to a recent session held by Microsoft experts at the Technology for Good 2016 (Philippines), I have learned that there is in fact a wide array of features hidden or unnoticed in PowerPoint that can give you basic image editing capabilities. From background removal, to color picking even up to creating composite images, let us go through some of these awesome features in PowerPoint!
