Stata Workflow optimization with GRAPHLOG

The basic workflow recommendations for Stata code and folder hierarchy given by Scott Long is relative easy to extend with inclusion of graphics in pdf log files.

In Stata using point-and-click:

*Get links to template files
find workflow 

*Install graphlog (and updates)
find graphlog 

Run example:

mkdir "C:\WorkFlow"
cd "C:\WorkFlow"

capture log close
log using workflowtest.log, replace

*//  gunnar 2019/03/10

version 10
clear all
macro drop _all
set linesize 80

* my commands start here
sysuse auto
summarize trunk
histogram trunk, normal
graph export graph.pdf, replace

log close

*Assume installed pdflatex (TeXLive, MikTeX)
graphlog using workflowtest, lspacing(1) replace

Set Exchange Server properties

Guided by principles in GDPR you may wish to delete mail older than 3 months from your inbox. This should be a principle for all office workers in both private and public organizations: Mail and electronic content not journalised should be deleted within 3 months.

Outlook: Choose 'Account Settings' in File window. Under 'Mail' highlight account and choose 'Edit'. Set time period for storage on Exchange server to 3 months. Repeat as necessary for all accounts. Under each account in Mail window: Right click inbox and chose 'Properties' and click the option to delete all offline content. Repeat as necessary for sent mail and other accounts.
