I will present at the EA Ignite Spring Conference in Baltimore, MD, on April 19 to 21, 2023. The annual spring conference is held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel. 

What is EA Ignite?

EA Ignite is for executive assistants looking to grow into or expand their role as a strategic partner. The scope of work for executive assistants is both broad and immersive. EA Ignite’s program was built to meet the training needs of executive and senior-level assistants. On-the-job training is limited, and the role requires advanced skills, in specific areas. Our training sessions are focused on trending topics like project management, strategic planning, and critical thinking.

EA Ignite is an exclusive training event limited to 500 like-minded peers. Take advantage of immersive training with today’s leading experts and spark conversations with other attendees around today’s innovative processes.

Chris Menard's Sessions at EA Ignite

Menard will present at two sessions at EA Ignite Spring Conference. Menard will cover Analyzing Financial Data in Microsoft Excel and Mastering Microsoft OneDrive.

Mastering Microsoft One Drive

To master Microsoft 365, you must understand OneDrive. OneDrive is an integral part of Microsoft 365, and it is essential to the functionality of most programs in the suite. Microsoft Teams meetings are stored in OneDrive, as are our chat files. OneDrive works together with Outlook, and OneDrive is the ideal place to store your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents and OneNote notebooks. OneDrive has fantastic features that empower collaboration, sharing, synchronization, backup, and versioning.

In our session, we will also examine when to use OneDrive and when to use SharePoint and demonstrate the sharing and collaboration features.

  • Date: Wednesday, April 19, 2023
  • Time: 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm

You will get the most out of this session if you…

  • Need to collaborate on M365 files

OneDrive Video - Sync icons explained

OneDrive is great for syncing your files. OneDrive has a great feature called Files on Demand. Your files on your computer could have three possible status icons with Files on Demand running. These icons appear when you are in File Explorer. I'll explain the three OneDrive sync icons and determine the local hard drive space used on your computer from OneDrive. We will look at how to free up hard drive space used by OneDrive.

The OneDrive Files on Demand sync icons are easy to understand. You have three icons for your files and folders. The "Blue cloud icon" is for files available online. No space is taken up on your local hard drive. If you don't have an internet connection, you can't download or access the blue cloud icons only.
