Office 365 is a robust platform that can help you and your team achieve more. With the right tools and tips, you can make the most out of Office 365 and be more productive than ever before.
This article from Sea Change Systems will discuss using Office 365 to its fullest potential and explain how to get the most out of your workday.
1. Install The Office Mobile Apps
If you’re not using the free Office apps on your computer, phone, or tablet for work, you might want to reconsider. Not only are the mobile apps user-friendly and intuitive, but they also offer a ton of great features that the Office desktop apps don’t.
With the mobile app you are able to use offline access, but are unable to with the desktop app. On the other hand the mobile app does not allow you to create tables of content, citations, or page layout tools in a word document.
However, chances are that most of your daily tasks can be completed in one of the apps, so you should at least give it a try. For example, you can take photos or screenshots directly from any mobile app and insert them into your documents.
This feature is handy for teams who often create marketing materials like presentations and reports collaboratively in real-time. Instead of emailing each other screenshots, you can simply use this feature to quickly share your ideas with your team members.
The mobile apps also allow you to subscribe to documents so that they’ll be updated automatically when you open them up for viewing or editing. This is a great way to prevent version control issues for teams who work on the same projects simultaneously.
2. Use Collaboration Features To Your Advantage
One of the best things about Office 365 is that your entire team will have access to all apps at all times. Since you can create documents in all of the Office apps, it offers excellent collaboration features to help you and your team work together more efficiently than ever before.
Instead of having to constantly email or chat back and forth about who’s working on what, everyone on your team will be able to stay up-to-date on each other’s progress at all times.
You can easily share documents with your team from within the document itself. When you do, everyone who has permission to view or edit that document will be able to work simultaneously on it in real-time.
3. Get The Most Out Of Excel With Power Query.
Data in spreadsheets often sits unused because it’s not in the correct format, or the person who created it simply forgot to use formulas when necessary. By using formulas in your spreadsheets you can make your data much more helpful in seconds.
Power Query is a tool that allows you to easily slice and dice your data to prepare it for analysis. Instead of spending hours or days just getting your data ready, you can have it formatted precisely how you would like in minutes in a professional, and efficient way.
You can also use Power Query to combine multiple sheets within Excel into one giant sheet containing all your essential data. This is especially useful for teams who work on duplicate files and constantly update them with new information.
Because you can easily combine data from multiple sources into one sheet, you’ll eliminate the risk of not using exact details and keep everyone on track.
