    She talks too fast, and I don't know what the view is that I'm supposed to want from her comment about i-pad, as I don't have one. I think this one could be better.

    We will cover Labs settings on the 23rd. If you want split view (email preview) labs turned on, ask for that help in training or come on in to the library technology center and we will assist you. The video does go fast.
