Tip #1 - How To Add Command to Quick Access Toolbar

Here is a quick tutorial on how to add for example, Save Copy As to your Quick Access Toolbar.
  1. Right click to the side of the ribbon, you will get a menu, go to Customize User Commands.
  2. In the left hand column find Save Copy As, click on it and select add, it will add it to the right hand column, hit apply and the close.
  3. By doing this it will add a user commands panel to your ribbon.
  4. Right click on the button it adds and select Add to Quick Access Toolbar and it will appear on your QAT.
  5. Then so you don't have the extra panel on your ribbon, you can shut that panel off by right clicking on the ribbon, go to panels, and deselect User Commands.
  6. If you want this on all of the environments you will have to add it to each one.
Hope you find this helpful.

Here is a video I did also showing the process.
