Now that I’ve got your attention, what I really mean by “Office 365 for Dummies” is Office 365 for non-techies. I work with the team of technical engineers and wizards at Technical Adventures, but I am not a techie. I like using technology to accomplish as much as possible with as little effort as possible. That is cool. So while the tech team can tell you all about Office 365 from the technical perspective, I thought I would give you the low down on what it means as a user.
First of all, before Office 365, if I wanted to track which emails I had responded to, I had to either cc myself when I responded or check multiple accounts. Crazy. For calendar items, I could only update when the devices were in the same location. Now everything is synced automatically. If I start an email at home, the draft shows up on my cell phone so I can continue it from the road. If I add a calendar item in one place, it shows up everywhere.
My contacts are all in one place, always with me, updatable on any device including laptop, cell phone, iPAD, tablet, etc. This makes staying in touch easy.
Here’s the video that shows how to Use email and more in Office 365.
With Office 365, you have a lot of choices for how you use email, calendars, contacts, and more. Your account can be accessed via your personal devices and from anywhere via the web portal. You’ll find that many mobile devices work on Office 365 including Windows phone, iPhone and Android devices.
You can also use other familiar Microsoft products, including Word and Excel, online and on up to 5 devices per user. If you like to be able to work in the office and on the road, this is going to be a dream come true for you.
