How to Make the Most out of Office 365

Office 365 has so much more to offer than just Outlook and Word, but many subscriber’s aren’t making the most of their package.

Here’s our handy guide to getting more from all your Microsoft apps.

Useful Office 365 Applications

Here are some Microsoft applications we believe will bring you true value, if you’re not already using them.

Outlook

If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you’re more than likely already using Outlook for your emails.

Not only can you use Outlook to send and receive emails, but to also add events into your calendar, which can be shared with anyone, so they can see when you’re busy.

Managing emails can take up a good part of your day, but Outlook has many keyboard shortcuts that can save you time.

PowerPoint

PowerPoint allows you to create presentation slides as well as PDF documents.

You might be thinking, “PowerPoint was something I used at school, and the presentations never look that great or interesting”, well there are some easy ways to make your PowerPoint slides look professional.

Bookings

If you’re part of a business and haven’t used Bookings yet, it’s worth giving it a try. Bookings makes it easier to schedule and manage appointments and meetings with customers. It also makes adding tasks0 and events to your calendar more simple.

With this amazing app, you’ll be able to create your own bookings page where customers can select dates and times for calls and meetings. This page can be shared anywhere and can help to attract new potential clients.

Word

Word is one of the most used applications in the Office 365 package, as it makes documenting anything quick and simple.

Although Microsoft Word might just be an app where you can write stuff down and add images, there are some very cool hidden features that many don’t know about.

Teams

If you’re looking to easily communicate throughout your business, whether it’s with video calls or messaging, Teams is the application for you. Teams is essentially Microsoft’s version of Zoom or Cisco Webex, where you can create video meetings with people inside or outside your business. You’re also able to store and manage documents from Teams, making it easier to find, view and share.

Whether you’re new to Microsoft Teams or already a daily user, we have series of helpful tips and tricks videos to help improve your knowledge.
