Chayse’s answer described the exact scenario where this message appears.
If you are the only one editing the document, this message will not appear. If someone else was editing the document simultaneously and then leaves the editing session, you are informed that “It’s just you here now.” The keyword is NOW. Earlier you were not alone, now you are.
Will post more quiz questions soon. Enjoy.
I have not posted a quiz for a long time. Here it is – a quick one.
When do you see this message “It’ just you here now.” while working with some Office applications?

The right answer was given again by Kakesh. Congratulations!
If you have tabular data copied from Excel which contains a list of email ids, how to convert it to a semicolon delimited list for sending a mail. Of course, the quiz was to find the quickest and smartest way.
How to convert this…
firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
The right answer
The answer is that you don’t have to do anything special.
Most email applications understand the issue and they know how to convert a tabular copy paste to a semicolon delimited list. In most cases, you don’t have to do anything special.
Just copy and paste the tabular data into the To, CC or BCC fields and click send as usual.
If you want to see the process in action, press Ctrl K or click on Check Names button in Outlook. It will process the data and show you the results.
I hope you already know this but just to be sure… If you are sending a mail to many unrelated people, put the names in BCC and put your own name in the To list. This way we protect the privacy of all the recipients.
Even though you may know all these people, they may not know each other. Therefore, it is your job to protect their identity.

Kakesh was declared the winner because he explained both uses of Quick Click clearly- for Follow Up Flag default and Color Category default.
His answer was:
Quick click is a way of categorizing the emails. In a single click a mail or contact can be categorized to default category. Default category can be set using set up quick clicks. Custom followup flags can also be made using custom option where start date , end date can also be defined.Similarly for contact also flag can be defined using single click. In a table view of contact flag option comes and by clicking that once it sets the flag to default category. I use quick click for making a mail important one so that I can review the same at a later date also. So I have to review only my important mails at a later date.
Remember to use Color Categories to color code your mails, tasks, calendar entries and even contacts. Try to standardize use of color categories at least within your team – to avoid confusion.
DO NOT use flags to mark tasks – convert mails to tasks.
