2-2: Get Acquainted with Office 365®

Holly Uverity & Nancy Kruschke

Microsoft Office 365® is a relatively new product with multiple subscriptions available, each containing different apps.  Because you may not understand everything included in your subscription, you may have access to powerful apps and not even know it.
This session is an overview of Office 365® and introduces some of the lesser known and and least utilized apps.  We’ll cover Flow, Planner and others that have the most impact on collaboration, workflow and productivity.

Get Acquainted with Office 365® is an independent seminar and is neither affiliated with, authorized, sponsored, nor approved by, Microsoft Corporation.

The objectives of the session include introducing and clarifying what’s included in Office 365®, discussing business and residential applications for Office 365® and
sharing ways to increase collaboration and productivity.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the suite of apps and creative ways they can use them in their businesses and with their clients.

The session will be delivered using a show and tell of the apps in Office 365® along with a handout.  We’ll include time for table discussions to generate ideas which will be shared with the group.  Our training style is interactive and encourages questions and audience participation.

The business world runs on Office products.  Microsoft launched Office 365® in 2011 and with the release of Office 2013, Microsoft expanded Office 365® to include plans for different business types and general consumers.  As Office 365® becomes the norm, NAPO members will see more and more of their clients using it and because it is a relatively new and different Microsoft product, it can be easy to become confused.  

This session introduces attendees to different available subscriptions and their included apps; we know that many NAPO members invest in outside apps simply because they’re unaware there are similar apps within 365. 

Since we won’t have time to cover all the apps in depth, we’ll focus on a few that we believe have the greatest impact on collaboration and productivity.
