Microsoft Microsoft 365 Office 365 FAQ's
Office 365 is a cloud-based, subscription service from Microsoft. Unlike the traditional way of buying software, where you would purchase Microsoft Office with an up-front payment, Office 365 is purchased via a monthly subscription, with updates available for as long as your subscription continues.
The Microsoft Office suite of applications is downloaded to your computer or laptop, and online, browser-based versions of the applications are available. You also have access to OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage facility.
There are several variants of the Office 365 suite, and the specific version you purchase should be based on your particular business requirements.
Microsoft Office 365 has an extensive range of features to help with the creation and maintenance of a large variety of business documents. The core suite of products includes:
Depending on the version your business has purchased, you may also have access to additional services such as Skype for Business, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, and more.
Office 365 has become increasingly popular with many businesses for its cloud storage, online functionality, and collaboration features.
Anybody currently using older Microsoft Office versions might consider upgrading to Office 365, not just for the updated applications, but also for the additional services provided.
The ability to create content on one device and have the content synchronised to all your devices, along with the ability to access your cloud-based documents from anywhere, make Office 365 an attractive proposition for many.
Some significant features of Microsoft Office 365 are:
- OneDrive cloud storage
- Content synchronisation
- Improved collaboration functions
- Automatic application upgrades
These are just some of the features of Office 365, but of course, there are many more. If you need to create just about any kind of business document, from spreadsheets to reports, email to instant messaging then you will probably have a use for Microsoft Office 365.
Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use various tools by somebody else at work.
Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error, unfortunately, involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams end up working inefficiently.
At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find an Office 365 for Dummies book to help with some of those tricky problems. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that it still takes time to find the information you need.
Our Microsoft Office 365 courses are designed to target the key features and tools included in the applications to help you get back to work and apply them right away.
Attending an Office 365 course can help you to save time right away. You will be shown the best ways to use the application and you will learn shortcuts and tips that will continue to be of use long after your training course with Keystroke Learning has finished.
Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.
You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need.
We get this question a lot. There seems to be a lot of uncertainty around “the cloud” and what it implies. The cloud simply refers to online storage. It means that your documents are stored online, instead of on the traditional file server in the back corner of your office.
The advantage of storing your content in the cloud is that it is then available to you anywhere, anytime provided you have an internet connection.
Many of the services you probably use every day are a part of the cloud—everything from web-based email to mobile banking and online photo storage.
For example, you might be in a location where you do not have your own laptop, but you can use another computer. You can log in to your Office 365 account, and use the online version of Excel to access the spreadsheet you need.
Once you are done you can log out of your account, and any changes you have made are automatically available when you get back to the office.
One of the best Office 365 features is among its simplest, and it’s called Tell Me. If you are looking for a specific tool in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you are usually taken to a Microsoft Support website telling you how to open and use that tool. If you aren’t using the same version as the one discussed in the directions, this can be a problem.
Tell Me resolves the problem by simply giving you a link that opens the tool you are looking for. Type in a few words and the list of tools begins to populate, allowing you to select what you are looking for and to keep on working.
Of course, we think the best option is to book a course with Keystroke Learning, but we may be a little biased.
Absolutely, there are several ways to share documents, and this functionality is baked right into the Office 365 applications.
You can go to the file tab and choose a sharing option from there. You can also share right from title bar at the top right of the screen in most applications.
Once you select either of these you will be presented with several options for sharing your documents. The ability to share documents right from within an application is one of the advantages of Office 365.
Not only can you share your documents, if you are using Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you can collaborate and co-author documents in real time. Just make sure you save your document in SharePoint or OneDrive to get started.
Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course.
We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.
If we have done our job well, you may be inspired to learn even more by attending another course. If you are looking for something other than Office 365, we have a comprehensive range of courses available for you to choose from.
