Faculty Instructional Development

SOS Guides

The SOS Network is about distributing knowledge and effective office practices. SOS guides provide how-to instructions with graphics to help staff become more familiar with the layout, features and functionality of the office applications you use everyday. The goal is to enhance support for clinical and preclinical faculty depend upon by providing direct support to our administrative and professional staff.

Download, use and share the SOS Guides below. Most of them address or apply to the 2010 and/or 2013 versions of the office software. However, many of these tips will help as well in using the 2016 version of Office.
