Autodesk Tip ~ Online Business Tip ~ Excel Tip
Rain and joy, somehow this boosts energy. Prize won for sales - yes you too can do it! Want to kill retailers who spoil children's expectations of celebrations by starting two months before.
Scores of unwary South African Facebook users have been sharing a viral scam offering a R1 500 coupon from Pick n Pay, but the retailer has confirmed to Fin24 that it is a hoax.
This phishing scam reads as follows: "Pick n Pay has announced that everyone who shares this link will be sent a R1500 coupon for its anniversary. TODAY ONLY" and gives a fake website that requires answers to a three step "survey" before the post is shared to your own timeline.
We got sent it today on WhatsApp. Read more here on Fin24. The real Pick n Pay website is https://www.pnp.co.za/ (the https: means it is a secure site). The scam site is an insecure (http:) .com site.
For confirmation visit the real Pick n Pay website and scroll down to "November 2019: Fake R1500 Facebook Coupon".
90-day Subscription Renewal Reminder Added
Customers are reminded 90 days in advance to renew their subscription by Autodesk:
"In an effort to increase our subscription renewal rates, we recently began sending 90-day renewal reminder emails to customers in addition to our standard 45-, 30-, and 4-day reminders.
"Our goal is to give customers more advance notice that their maintenance plan will be expiring soon and to remind them of their renewal options. The renewal reminders are stopped once a subscription has been renewed.
"As previously announced, we have also added that customers can save 10% when they switch to a subscription with 3-year terms at renewal time*."
* Savings of 3-year subscriptions is compared to the applicable Autodesk suggested retail price for 3 consecutive, annual subscriptions. Autodesk partners are independent and free to set their own prices.
Autodesk is pleased to provide a special offer encouraging eligible customers with 2014-2019 perpetual licenses not on maintenance to upgrade to subscription.
From May 7 through October 25, 2019, you may receive up to 20% off the Suggested Retail Price of a new 1- or 3-year subscription when you terminate your associated perpetual license.
In addition to more value and flexibility than perpetual licenses, you can save up to 20% when trading in qualifying perpetual licenses that are not on maintenance plans, for a subscription to the latest Autodesk industry collections or to most individual products—like AutoCAD® including specialized toolsets, AutoCAD LT® , Civil 3D® , Revit® , Inventor® , 3ds Max® and more.
Multi-year Moving to Subscription
Maintenance plans moving to a 3-year subscription
As part of this offer, now if you have a 1-year or 2-year subscription Move to Subscription can choose to switch to a 3-year Move to Subscription at the time of renewal
March 27, 2019
You can act on this 90 days before expiry.
New Product Usage Reporting for Admins with Single-User Access
We can now spend more time strategically advising you on the best way to adopt new and existing tools to achieve your business outcomes.
By sending us your old perpetual licence, we can upgrade you to the latest subscription version of your product at a 20% discount. Microsoft has announced the end of extended support for Windows 7 in January 2020, this is an opportunity to upgrade to a Windows 10 supported subscription.

Earlier, we looked inside the macro you recorded. Then, we introduced the macro editor program and its main menu. Let us now examine the first of its Toolbars: The Standard Toolbar.
In Excel, press Alt+F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor. You should see the following at the top of the window:
If you don't see the toolbar (shown here directly under the main menu, but yours may be elsewhere), click the View menu and, on the Toolbar sub-menu, tick "Standard". Let's now look at the tools and what they do:
View Excel: This takes you back to the current workbook in Excel.
Next time we'll look at the Visual Basic Editor's Edit toolbar.
Computer Terms: "Beta" version software is in its second stage of testing. Beta is Latin for "still doesn't work".
All the Best from the team!
