When all your tools are talking to each other, it makes it easy for you to work on projects in real time with your team, no matter where you are.
The top time-saving features in Word and Excel
Tell Me feature
In Word 2016, use the Tell me what you want to do field on the ribbon to enter words and phrases about what you want to do next, then quickly navigate to features you want to use or actions you want to perform. You can also use the Tell Me feature to help you find what you’re looking for, or use Smart Lookup to research or define the term you entered.
The forecasting function now enables forecasting based on Exponential Smoothing (such as FORECAST.ETS). In the Data tab, click the Forecast Sheet button to create a forecast visualisation of your data series. From the wizard, you can also find options to adjust common forecast parameters, such as seasonality, which is automatically detected by default and confidence intervals.
Streamline your process
Free yourself and your team from spending time on recurring manual processes. Now, you can build and launch Flows directly from OneDrive to automate processes for your files, or directly from SharePoint to power everything from simple alerts and approvals to the management of complex, mission-critical business operations. Simply click Add Flow, then select a flow template from a panel.
Start with features like these:
1. Gather and manage data and files
SharePoint lists collect data – just like you might in Excel – and are easy to share and manage on an intranet. More than 10 million custom lists are in use across Office 365 – from simple lists like contacts and tasks to lists that power mission-critical business operations for large enterprises. Use PowerApps to build custom forms to view, create, and modify data and files.
2. Automate repetitive tasks – Use the simple, visual designer in Flow to lay out the steps for recurring manual team and organisational processes. You can do everything in Flow – from configuring alerts and approvals to modelling complex, multistage processes.
3. Connect to and integrate data sources and services – When your process needs data from other sources and services, Flow lets you automate data exchange, synchronise files and more. For example, use Flow to copy information entered by a sales team in Microsoft Dynamics to a SharePoint list used by operations. Flow also integrates with on-premises and third-party services.
4. Build apps that transform your business – With PowerApps, without writing code, you can create apps that interact with data in SharePoint lists and libraries, as well as other cloud and on-premises sources. Use PowerApps to create digital experiences that take advantage of technology, like cameras on mobile phones, to work in innovative ways.
Never miss a note
Taking notes on every important part of a meeting can be a little overwhelming. With OneNote 2016, you can invite others to a shared notebook by choosing File > Share > Invite People. To share a notebook during a meeting, choose File > Share > Share with Meeting. After others in your team open the notebook, anyone with permissions can add meeting notes simultaneously, which then sync automatically.
