Microsoft 365 Productivity and Collaboration Updates
The Microsoft experience is all about building the best productivity service to help you and your organization get more done, and they’re committed to making sure your experience only gets better with time. Every month of late, Microsoft has introduced new updates to their Office products. This month, Microsoft 365 is introducing capabilities to help users work on the go, collaborate on content more easily, interact with apps in more ways, and customize their productivity experiences.
In an effort for users to be more productive on the go, Microsoft introduced an Office 365 app. The Office app is a fully redesigned experience that combines Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single app, adds new capabilities to help create content in uniquely mobile ways, and has integrated Actions that help you accomplish common mobile tasks. This new Office app is now generally available worldwide on Android and iOS.
New tools in PowerPoint and Visio make it easier for teams to work together, improving the collaboration among these popular apps. Beginning in March, Microsoft will roll out an updated comments feature in PowerPoint. Team members can now anchor comments to objects, use @mention notifications, discover and add comments more easily, and more. The new comments experience will be available to all Office 365 users with the latest update.
Visio for the web will begin allowing collaborators to create, edit, and comment on drawings simultaneously. With live co-authoring and a simple presence indicator, teams can work seamlessly together to brainstorm and develop their ideas. These capabilities will also be available directly in Teams. You can share your Visio drawings with other users since files stored in your Team’s file library are accessible to every member.
