Microsoft Office 2016 is part of Office 365

Many people are unaware that from just £2.50 per user per month you can now access the latest Microsoft Office software suite for business.

In the past few months there has been several updates made, too many for us to cover in this article alone so we’ve decided to introduce you to our favourites.

Designer – in Microsoft PowerPoint

A new feature that allows users to deliver customised presentations and maximise the visual impact of its most important content in slick, clean presentation format. Each time the Designer feature is used it learns about a users preferences and adapts its recommendations to previous preferences which saves a lot of time.

Calendar Insights Template – in Microsoft Excel

Users can now view your calendar as a dashboard and drill into the data to get a better handle on how you spend your time. It helps users to improve their productivity levels and get more out of their working day.

More Send As Options – in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Powerpoint

Users can now send a document either as an attachment or as a PDF without leaving the confines of your document from the share pane. This saves time and improves productivity by avoiding the distractions in your inbox.

And lastly one of my personal favourites that was released back in September 

Real-Time Typing feature – in Microsoft Word.

When working on the same document, users can see exactly where others are working within the document and view their edits as they happen. We find this really useful and it avoids loading the server with hundreds of document versions that can easily get overwritten and helps save on file storage space too.

There are many other great updates from the latest release. We are looking forward to seeing what January’s updates release brings. Infinity are certified Microsoft Silver Partners, so if you are looking to subscribe to Office 365 for business please get in touch.
