One of the main reasons you set up a NAS server is to store and share files. We have looked at setting up your Synology NAS and adding users. Now, let us look at how you can create shared folders. We are using Synology’s DS920+ NAS, but the process works similarly in most Synology NAS devices. Before you begin, be aware that you’ll need to have admin access to your Synology DSM.

Follow these steps to create shared folders on a Synology NAS:

  1. Log in to your Synology device, and you will be presented with the DiskStation Manager interface, as shown in Figure 1, below. Click the Control Panel icon, shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.

Video technology is changing as we speak, and as you read this content. Yes, change is rapid, and sometimes, it can be difficult to stay in touch with these advances. So, it is awesome if your video editing tool updates itself to take advantage of new technologies, and also integrates new ideas as part of your presentation and video creation workflow. Our review product, DemoCreator 6 is adept with new technologies and ideas and is perfect for existing DemoCreator users. If you’ve never used DemoCreator before, you’ll be glad to know that it is a perfect initial step for new and wannabe presentation video editors.

In the previous part of this Presentation Management series of posts, we explored the future of presenting. In this concluding part, we will look back and paraphrase what we learned.

We’ve been presenting to each other before the word “present” ever made it into our vernacular. And we’ve forced ourselves to adjust and adapt to whatever technology was available at the time.

Cave paintings were likely the earliest form of presentation. Moses’ Ten Commandments on two stone tablets were a form of presentation. Today, they might very well be two slides with five bullet points each. Then we evolved to paintings on wood and canvas, to still life photography and four-color printing, and then video.

Today, we are going to explore how you can quickly create Harvey balls within PowerPoint using think-cell. Before we explore how to do so, let’s do a quick recap about what Harvey balls are, and where think-cell fits within the picture. Harvey balls are round ideograms or pictograms that show different states of a ball with quarters added or subtracted to attain five states between start and completion. They have been named after Harvey L. Poppel, who started using them in the 1970s. They are often used in business reports, documents, and presentations because they show progressive data at a quick glance.
