Top Laser Printer Repair Companies in NYC to Contact Instead of the Manufacturer

When you have an issue with a laser printer in your office, it is not always easy to know whom to call, so many fall into the trap of contacting the manufacturer directly. Unfortunately, this can lead to spending hours in a bureaucratic maze.

Using Microsoft 365 Tools to Create NY Forward Health Screening Process

There are so many tools in Microsoft 365 that you are likely not tapping into all of the resources available at your fingertips.

An exercise to develop a procedure to satisfy the New York Forward Health Screening requirement unveiled what is possible when combining Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Forms, and Flow.

See below for a step by step process for how we are performing our Employee & Visitor health assessments electronically using these tools.

You will need to set up a separate flow for the Employee and the Visitor form:
