SBS IT Office 365 Collaboration

Office 365 Collaboration keeps your team on the same page

 

Office 365 Collaboration is one of many of the current features found in Office 365.  Microsoft Office has come on a long way from being a Word Processor, Spreadsheet Application and Presentation Tool through Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

Armed with many more Applications and Solutions than the original desktop package, Microsoft Office now forms an integral part of Microsoft Office 365.

Microsoft Office 365 now provides a one stop shop for document creation, document organisation and storage.  Communications (Email, Voice, Video and Chat), collaboration and mobility (and more..) are all great benefits.

 

Collaboration

 

We are going to focus on collaboration features during this post, using a few of the most common and well know Office Products.  Word, Excel and Powerpoint.  Collaboration isn’t possible without shared storage, so Office 365 Groups are being used, so this does introduce the OneDrive/Sharepoint element.

Licensing

 

Microsoft Office comes in two flavours now, Desktop Applications and Web Applications (or both if you really wanted to).  The most common Office 365 plans are Office 365 Business Basic and Office 365 Business Standard.  Both licenses have the same entitlements in the subscription, however Desktop Office Applications are only available in the Business Standard Licenses.

Our preference is the Desktop Applications, but the Web Applications offer a lot of functionality and for those on the Business Standard licenses offer a way of editing files live when on the move without your desktop computer and the Desktop Application versions.

So imagine needing to work on documents at the same time as a colleague or in the current example of the Covid-19 pandemic, remote working means you cannot sit with a colleague to put together a presentation, well.. the technology is readily available through Microsoft Office 365.

Below we demonstrate collaboration using Word, Excel and Powerpoint and clearly highlight our love for tea and “chocolate” biscuits.  It should also be noted that for our demonstration purposes we were using Microsoft Teams on a conference call just to add an extra layer of collaboration within the Microsoft Suite

Final Thought

 

The modern workplace demands the ability to collaborate seemlessly and with the mobility a key requirement, especially with recent events surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.  The Office 365 modern workplace provides the solutions to make this a reality and it works really well.
