New "How To..." @YouTube Video - my first using @Microsoft Office 2013

Yesterday I made a new video using the new version of Microsoft Office 365, and featuring Excel 2013. For my first video in this series I decided to make a new version of my existing most popular video: How to Create a Basic Gantt Chart in Excel 2010. The procedure to create a Gantt chart is almost the same in both versions of Excel (2010 and 2013) - here's the end result:

I created this video at home, and it was the first time I had done so for my YouTube channel. I used the 30-day trial version of Snagit and my own installation of Office 365. It is not possible for me to create these videos at work where I have made all my previous videos. Since I have created Gantt charts with Excel many times I thought that this video would be a piece of cake to make. But... I made many errors and had to restart many times before I got it right. Also, home is a lot noisier that my office at work - every sound in the house seemed to be magnified at my desk.

I hope to redo all my most popular Office 2003 and 2010 videos (I skipped 2007) as the next series, and then look at some more opportunities to create videos using new material.
