Top Business Features in Office 365

Office 365 has become such a baseline application in the last couple of years that many businesses and corporations have switched over. However, even though there has been a quick migration to Office 365 there are still multiple businesses that are not using the suite to the fullest extent. Here are our top picks for the best features in O365 to boost your workplace collaboration and productivity.

1. Co-authoring documents

If you use SharePoint or OneDrive to store your documents, then you can use Office Online to make changes to the document which your colleagues can see and edit in real-time. Not only is this a great collaboration tool, you can get more work done, faster and it reduces errors that creep into documents when working with multiple versions.

2. Flow

Perhaps the most exciting feature of Office 365 is a new application called Flow. Flow allows users to create cross application rules where performing one action on one application can trigger an action on another application.

For example, you might want to trigger an email to be sent when a new item gets added to the SharePoint list, such as requesting managerial approval.

The best part of Flows is that there is an online collaborative library of Flows rules, which keeps growing on a daily basis. The online Flow community freely share new Flow rules they have authored, which anyone can pick up and customise for their environment. There are templates for flows that connect applications such as Pinterest and Facebook. It's a great way to automate.

3. Power Apps

Power Apps are another innovation we are excited about. It gives you the ability to connect into your data and create your own customised apps without the need to write code. This opens up a huge range of possibilities for o365 users. Create apps and then publish them to your own site for your customers to access.

4. Office 365 Groups in Outlook

If you are working collaboratively with a set of colleagues, Office 365 Groups is a better way to communicate. It eliminates the need for long email chains which clutter the inbox and basically gives everyone a headache.

You can create your own groups, which will appear as a separate folder in the Outlook 365. All conversation for that group will appear in that shared folder. Each group comes with its own shared inbox, file repository, calendar and integrated OneNote notes.

 

So what are you waiting for, jump into our Office 365 courses and take advantage of all that it has to offer.
