Kimberly, There is a way to do it.  I just did it.  Here is the link:

http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/insert-the-date-and-time/
and
http://www.slipstick.com/developer/how-to-apply-a-new-default-form-to-an-outlook-folder/

Now I got to figure out how I managed to make my note area smaller.

But it did work.

Hi:

I need some help!  I would like to add the Create Date to the "General" screen of my Contacts.  There appears to be plenty of room.   I played with the Developer Tab a little.   When I added the field, what I accomplished only changed the form for one Contact.  Also, the form was reformatted differently for that one contact.

I hope this makes sense.

Can anyone point me to instructions on how to do this?

We received a recent edition of a CPA publication yesterday and I found one of the article most interesting. The Accounting Association is considering changing the guidelines for continuing professional education (CPE) to ten minute increments. The rationale for the change was when you have a question concerning a tax issue research needs to be done to answer the question.  In doing the research you are learning more about a topic that would improve upon your knowledge as an accountant and that is the emphasis of CPE.

In thinking about our recertification through IAAP  the same rational could apply.  If you have a question and you use Lydia.com to answer your questions or perhaps various sites that are recommended by IAAP or a program or a service provider that is recommended for continuing education that could be another avenue to improve upon our skills as Admins.  

Accountants have a resource that they pay to use, it is constantly updated and is used on a regular basis throughout the firm.  This might be an idea that our organization could adopt in the future.

Hi Geri,

I am not sure if your question was answered or not.

I don't know about receiving recertification points for the free webinars from Lydia.com.

I do know that in order to be considered, the webinars must be at least an hour in length and they have to cover materials that are on the certifcation exam. Since Lydia.com is a technology training website, I would think they would qualify.

The best way to find out would be to contact hq directly.  They can be reached at certification@iaap-hq.org.

Have a wonderful day!

Robin :-)

I agree with Denise. The web is where you want to be. Linda.com has free webinars on line and is a great resource for much more info.

Suggestion to Learning Certain Applications

Subject: Suggestion to Learning Certain Applications
Message:
I am curious about applications too.  

Earlier in 2Q-2014 I enrolled in two 60-minute seminars, ONE-NOTE, hosted by a non-CA chapter.  I missed them both but noticed a YouTube.com or similar web-site to make me learn without earning certification points. 
Of course this kind of learning does not get attached to my re-certification paperwork.

I've had mixed results and a lot of lost time and efficiency with the online tutorials.  

I presented the seminar to my boss (who also works in public accounting and is known to be super thrifty), on how I would save time and gain efficiency in my job (thereby saving the company payroll $$$) by not having to hunt around for training on something we use every day.

Present it as an efficiency investment for the firm, and give it a shot.  The worst they can say, is "no."  Ask the boss.  

Keep trying, it took me a few tries and budget cycles to get IAAP support from my employer.

You are correct as I use them often. 

If you are interested in learning more, maybe admins should consider subscribing to the Adobe Creative Cloud as they have a price structure that may accommodate your budget.
