Tips and tricks to get the most out of Microsoft 365

Getting to grips with Microsoft 365 can make your life much easier and unlock a lot of hidden potentials found in this software suite. There is a huge range of applications and features bundled into Microsoft 365, and knowing how to get the most out of it can boost your productivity tremendously. This article will highlight a few tips and tricks to streamline how you use Microsoft 365 at home and in the workplace.

Try out the ‘Tell Me’ feature

The ‘Tell Me’ feature is a handy little tool to quickly access features across Microsoft 365. If you’re working on a document or spreadsheet, you can access this feature by clicking the lightbulb icon in the toolbar. Just type in what you want to do next, like insert a graph, and Tell Me will pull up that feature for you.

Collaborate online and share documents

The online functionality of Microsoft 365 allows for a lot of fantastic collaborative features that are often overlooked. You can share and edit documents with coworkers in real-time across different devices, and share documents with Sharepoint. By accessing the Share+ feature within Sharepoint, you can create a link that can be shared via email.

Streamline scheduling

Rather than working through an email chain to confirm meeting times, you can use the Microsoft Scheduling Assistant in Microsoft 365. Simply create an event in your calendar, add your guests to the event and select a time. By synchronising all of your guest’s calendars, Microsoft Scheduling Assistant can find a time that suits everyone without having to bother them.

Make it official with DocuSign

If you have some important documents that need to be signed, you can use DocuSign to do it without having to print a page. Access this feature in Outlook or Word to sign and send your documents across a secure environment.

If you are in the market for a comprehensive software package that lets you do everything we have discussed, we stock Microsoft 365 Cairns wide and can help you find the right package for you.
