About the "Best of Blue & Gold" Program

Welcome to the Best of Blue & Gold! Each week CFCS staff members will receive a Tech Tuesday email. Complete the weekly Tech Tuesday to earn an entry into the weekly and monthly drawings. This year there are no Tech Tickets. Simply complete the Tech Tuesday and you are entered into the drawing for that week and month! Weekly drawings will take place on Tuesday mornings. Winners will be announced in the Tech Tuesday email.

The Best of Blue & Gold kicks off in November and runs through the end of April.

Weekly Tech Tuesday

November 23rd/30th All Staff Tech Tuesday - Gmail Filters

This week we are discussing email filters in Gmail. Creating filters in Gmail makes it easy to organize messages automatically. You may want to create filters for messages from a specific sender or messages that contain certain words in the subject (For example - Best of Blue & Gold, GoGuardian summaries, or direct deposit emails). Gmail filters are comparable to "rules" you may have created in our old email system. Because of Fall Break, this Tech Tuesday will span two weeks. All submissions are due by Monday, December 6th!

Complete the Tech Tuesday and submit the quick feedback form to be entered in the weekly and monthly drawings. All entries are due by the end of the day on the following Monday
