Typically I talk about a macro that you can either download or purchase. Today I want to talk about making your own macros. This probably scares the daylights out of some of you. It shouldn’t, as the process is pretty simply for creating your own macro.
I want you to ask yourself if there are things you do on a regular basis that have the exact same steps every time. Maybe that task is only 2-3 steps. Maybe it is 50 steps. A macro can make it a single step. You’ll need to do the task once while recording the steps. Then save those steps as a macro. Once you’ve saved the macro, you can assign it to a shortcut key or a toolbar button.
By recording a few macros to automate your workflow, you may be able to save hours each week. Start making notes of those multi-step processes and get them recorded before you waste any more of your time!
