Office 365 is a product by Microsoft that has been designed to allow users access to Office applications at any time on any device. With Office 365, it is possible to connect with colleagues easily, share documents and permit more than one user to edit and view projects in real time. The product is always current and gets updates on its Web-based platform, so you’ll always be working with the most recent features and aren’t burdened with software updates. In the business world, time is money, and Office 365 is a real time saver when it comes to getting the job done in a quality and efficient manner. Here we’ve outlined three ways Office 365 enhances business productivity, making it a worthwhile investment.
- Outlook Email Processes Have Been Simplified
It is now faster and easier to perform certain processes in the Outlook email system with Office 365. For example, if you want to put an address into an email signature, all you have to do is click on the Bing Maps app that is located in the bar above the email. The map then shows up right in the email interface and lets you search for directions. You no longer have to go to a Web browser and copy and paste the address into a maps page to find out a place’s location.
Sharing documents and attachments within Office 365’s Outlook Application is also simpler than before. Just drop and drag files to attach them or share documents with colleagues by connecting links to OneDrive. With OneDrive you can designate who gets to make edits to documents and who just gets to read them or leave comments.
- The Landing Page
The home base of the Office 365 portal is their landing page. You can collaborate with colleagues from the landing page and access all Office Online applications easily. MS Office programs can be installed on your Mac or PC and then users may download the apps for tablets and smartphones. The top of the landing page houses the app launcher dashboard, which is where Office apps can be opened along with any other apps, with the ability to easily switch amongst them. A sign in is required for access, and the landing page lets you work on tasks and check them off while on the go. You can even add custom apps and personalize the sign in page to display your corporate branding.
- The Group Feature
A very handy tool on Office 365 is the My Team groups feature. Groups allows you to arrange communications with employees that are working together on a specific project. Groups lets you organize files in one location so that users can all view, share and edit them. Everyone may be connected with calendar invitations so no one is left out of the loop about upcoming meetings or deadlines. If you don’t want to use the phone, there is the Conversations tool that lets group members have meetings when they are in different places.
