----------------------------------------------------
I have been asked to teach a class to make all our users "Power Users" (OK,
at least a few more of them anyway). Our President has noticed that some
people are more efficient than others and use little tricks to speed things
up - even simple stuff like Favorites bar management. Other things like
keyboard shortcuts and cut/paste. Now that we are on 6.0 with
personalization and customization (dangerous territory, I know, that
personalization) we may be able to do even more. I do realize that true
power users are born not made but even the technophobes might be able to
learn a thing or two.

So, at your site, what defines a power user? What are some common traits
and capabilities that could be taught to others?

I will run any suggestions by my site's couple power users and we will try
to develop an agenda for the class as well as a hints book for new
employees.

Thanks,
