Office 365: Get Started

Be more productive

Ready to do your best work? Office 365 is ready for you. The Office tools you already know and love are more powerful than ever, enabling you to easily create, explore, and get things done. You don’t even have to be at your desk or on a specific device to be productive. Although your device may change from time to time, your personalized settings and content won’t. They stay with you, online or offline, so you can switch between devices and pick up right where you left off.

Store, sync and share your content

You get access to everything you need when you store your content in the cloud. In short, your files and info aren’t stuck on any single PC or device; instead they are with you wherever you go. And working together has never been easier. Instead of lots of people creating multiple versions in different places, everyone can work on the same document—even at the same time. Office 365 keeps track of everyone’s changes in one place, so your documents are always up to date.

Keep everyone on the same page

Wouldn’t it be great if you and your team had a single place where you could get work done together and stay in sync with each other? Office 365 allows you to do just that. You can create a site that serves as a home base where you and your team can share and organize your resources—like notes, documents, schedules, conversations, and much more. No more running around to find what you need. Just go to your team site to get what you want, and then share it instantly with the whole group.

Stay on track and deliver on time

Isn’t life grand—when all of your projects are on track and you meet all of your deadlines? Office 365 can make your life a lot easier by helping you organize teamwork around common milestones. You can make sure work gets done by assigning people tasks that can be tracked and prioritized. And, you can keep an eye on important details with a real-time summary of your project that warns you about delays and keeps next steps and milestones on your radar. When it comes to really big and complicated projects, you can use Project Professional to manage task dependencies, balance resource allocations, and easily generate status reports. No need to worry—this all stays in sync with your site, where you can all continue to work together to keep your project on track.

Find the right people

Things always seem to work out better when you find the right people for the job. The problem is: how do you find the right people without taking a lot of time to track them down? Office 365 solves this problem by helping you quickly identify and connect with experts across your organization, whether they’re in the office down the hall or on the other side of the globe. Plus, you can reach out to them instantly and get the answers and information you need to make the right decisions, avoid reinventing the wheel, and improve your work.

Find what you need

Wouldn’t it be great if you could search for information at work just as easily as you do on the Internet? With Office 365 you can. That means you can quickly find what you need across sites, notes, or email. Don’t worry about coming up with the perfect keywords; whether you’re looking for documents, videos, people, or conversations, you can save time and pinpoint exactly what you need.

Make informed decisions

Making good decisions isn’t always just about good judgment or experience. It’s also about collecting and making sense of lots of data. That’s where PowerPivot comes in. It transforms Excel into a powerhouse that lets you easily combine massive amounts of data from multiple sources and build relationships between them. But data alone isn’t enough—it needs to be expressed clearly to make a powerful impact on people. Visualize the PowerPivot model with Power View, and take advantage of flexible and easy-to-use dashboards. Power View lets you explore, visualize, and present data in compelling ways, and then quickly share it with others. Now anyone can easily dig into data to make informed decisions and new discoveries.
