So, I’ve purchased a Microsoft Office 365 subscription for my business. Great
Ok, so I have Word, excel and PowerPoint etc. in the cloud. Got that.
I can use it across and download on several devices. All good.
But, what makes it so different from the old Microsoft Office package
Office 365 is a cloud based office software package that is designed with intelligent features that focuses on collaboration and productivity. I have put together some simple tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your 365 subscription.
Remote and Collaborative Editing
Collaboration is very important to any business and so, Office 365 allows users to edit the same document at the same time, thus making collaborating easier? As long as you have an internet connection, both you and your colleague(s) can work on the same document.
You Can Skype While You Type
Sending documents back and forth is now finally over with the Word Online integration of Skype for Business. Skype for Business offers live chat feature when you are working on a document. It also allows you to see when your fellow editor is typing, copying and pasting, in the document, as you can see their names beside their cursors.
It’s Accessible on Any Device
Office 365 is designed to increases overall productivity It’s features are available even if you are working on your phone, tablet, desktop PC, or the web. Its easier to access your resources from anywhere and from any device.
You Can Now Turn Notes Into Calendar Events
It is now possible to turn notes into calendar events with Office 365. Simply write your to-do-list in OneNote and let your tasks be converted into reminders and deadlines on your calendar. You can also add details, such as location, date and topic; then you can email it straight to your colleagues using the “Email Page” function.
Attaching Files Is Easier With Office 365
Adding attachment with OneDrive and Sharepoint is now a thing of the past. With Office 365, uploading and creating a document, presentations, spreadsheet, or a note would live in Microsoft’s cloud with its unique URL. By clicking the “Share+” function, the shareable link would pop up. Specifying permissions are possible as well. You can choose if you want the document to be private or shared with other people to allow collaborators to view or edit the link.
Office 365 Intelligence Helps You To Avoid Mistakes
If you have mistakenly or accidentally sent a wrong message to someone, asking for an attached file even if there is nothing attached, Office 365’s MailTips will intelligently stop that from happening. It warns you prior to sending the message, when it detects something wrong, in order to avoid mistakes.
