If you are WFH, what is your setup/tools used?
With the Covid-19 Pandemic outbreak, many of us are working from home this days. This new challenge made us do some changes to get the job done. If you are WFH, what is your setup/tools used? I'm using one laptop (Windows 10), one extra monitor, Microsoft Surface and Mobile Phone. Regarding software, Corporate VPN (Always use one...), Office 365 and specific bussiness applications. For mettings, Microsoft Teams and some times, Skype. Please share your thoughts and add some suggestions/ideas on how we can improve all this experience! Thanks!
feedback hub: we're having trouble connecting
I am faced with this problem, feedback hub: we're having trouble connecting. I have to press, try again or close the feedback hub and open it again to get it to work. I tried these commands but does not solve the issue. netsh winsock reset - and press Enter. netsh int ip reset - and press Enter. ipconfig / release - and press Enter. ipconfig / renew - and press Enter. ipconfig / flushdns - and press Enter Went to services.msc, DNS client but cannot restart it since it is grayed out. I tried other network connection but same issue. Is this a bug or what? Under Feedback activity, Windows feedback provided and Upvotes on your feedback, there will be few times it shows. --- I contact Microsoft support but one tech guy couldn't help me fix the problem. Here is the link to the feedback. https://aka.ms/AA6w2nk
SSRS Parameters, Expressions, and Multiple Subscriptions
Hello everyone, for those of us who have used SSRS long enough to know there is no straight forward way to set up multiple subscriptions from one .dtsx (ssrs) report. We can enter expressions within design mode and whatever it is their it will either use the built in expression or a default value, but we cannot enter a new expression on the subscription screen. ~ take for example I need a subscription to run report each Monday for the previous weeks data, in addition to that I also need another subscription to get the previous months data every first of the month. Well, sometimes Monday and the 1st of the month fall on the same day so how can the built in expression we apply in design mode understand to use both...it can't. If Microsoft allowed for us to override parameters values/expression -using- new expressions inside subscription menu, it would be cleaner than having to come up with unnecessary alternatives just to get the same report to run using different dynamic parameter values such as date ranges.
When you update, why do you change all my settings?
Every time I get an update to Windows, I have to reset all my options, you have forced me to use only your products, and that is NOT my choice. I have had to spend hours re-entering all my settings and my passwords (I have over 300 different passwords), and when I do an update, I have to re-enter everyone. It seems you could either get the updates tested before you release them, or at least give us a choice if we want to update (and after spending hours re-setting my settings and passwords, I think you know I would choose not to update!!) I not only have to do this to my comupter, but my husbands also.

No longer receiving insider updates
I have been an insider since Feb of 2015 on the fast ring (actually skip-ahead). I have 2 computers in the program, a desktop and a surface. My desktop is currently on build 19541 and windows update says it's up to date. On the other hand the surface is currently on build 19555 (actually downloading build 19559 as I'm typing this). How can I get the latest updates on the desktop?

Single spaced template for new doc on Word
The newest update to Office 365 doesn't have a template for a single spaced document. When you click on New Doc, you get a template with double spacing, trying to select single spacing doesn't work. There used to be an optional template for single spaced doc's, but now it's no longer available. Maybe I'm missing something, but I need to have the use of single spacing in my documents and I hate to have to use Google docs inorder to get the right template. Thanks for the help Ken Miller I just came up with the answer to my own question. I have been using the web version of Office and didn't realize. What a dummy, this happened after I did the recent update to Version 2004 in October. So, I installed the app on my laptop and don't you know I now have a choice of single spaced doc's as a template. Thanks to all who tried to help me with lots of suggestions. Ken
