Microsoft Office 2007: Content Controls Are Very Helpful

One of my friends has a business deal that he wanted me to be a part of for my web development skills. The business is very straight forward and execution should be nearly flawless, but it’s the web, so never flawless.

After I created a software plan, I needed a proposal template that could help. I went into Microsoft word and started a new document. On the left, I scrolled down to the bottom labeled “more categories” and clicked on proposals. You can choose any of them which will best suite your needs. The template is fully laid out with examples of what each section should contain. It also includes the ability to add a date picker, text fields, rich text, combo boxes and drop down options. The proposal I chose had section to mark off “Software Costs” and “Itemized Task List and Associated Hours” to make the proposal more professional.

I think Microsoft realized that if they can turn it into a PDF like controls, more people would use Office than Adobe. I will figure out more ways to use templates and content controls and learn some of the new advanced features in Microsoft Office.
