Office 365 is something we’ve talked about more than a few times and it is undoubtedly the future of Microsoft’s business offerings. There is so much you can do with 365 and you probably have barely scratched the surface as an Office user. So how do you take full advantage of it? Thankfully Microsoft makes it pretty easy.
Despite our attempts to become a paper-free society, the world is still driven by shredded and pressed tree pulp with words printed on them. As such, most offices either have a filing cabinet full of paperwork they need to keep or they have a desk scanner or multi-function device to convert it all to digital files. But what if you’re on the road or don’t have a scanner and want to digitize a document, white board, or business card into something useful (and not just take a picture of it, which doesn’t always work)? Then you need Office Lens.
The latest version of Office 365 includes a variety of updates. One in particular is useful to businesses who work in international markets: The Translator features in Word have received an update. This latest update now supports 60 languages, including 11 that use neural machine translation (meaning you get a better-quality translation). It’s pretty simple to get started with translating.
With Office and OneDrive or SharePoint Online, you can work together with other folks in your office at the same time on the same document. That feature is called co-authoring, and here’s how you get going on it.
Microsoft Word is a program we all spend a great deal of time in. And if you think about it, most of your time in that program is spent with your hands on the keyboard. The more you move your hands from your keyboard to your mouse and back, the less productive you are. Keyboard short cuts are the answer to increase your productivity.
