The new Office works the way you do and helps you get more done at home, on the job and on the go. Take Office with you and share and collaborate on documents with friends, family and colleagues. Your Office applications, documents and personal settings go wherever you go. Consumers can store Office documents on SkyDrive, and businesses can post documents to SharePoint and access them anywhere, share them at will and even work together on them in real time. Office works across devices and platforms, from smartphones and tablets to desktops and from PCs to Macs, and even on popular browsers. 1 The new Office is designed to work closely with Windows on PCs, tablets and phones. The fast and fluid experience lets you do more in less time, with minimalist styling and an intuitive touch and inking experience built into all the Office applications. Create a Word document on your PC and edit it on your Windows Phone with great fidelity, move from a keyboard to using touch seamlessly, or stream a full- featured version of Office to any Windows 7- or Windows 8-based PC with an Internet connection—with your personal settings intact. The sleek and modern interface gives you faster access to the tools you use every day with the ability to customize your experience in every Office application. New tools help you make beautiful modern documents, lead productive meetings and transform data into insight in a matter of clicks. The new Office user interface is also easy on the eyes, with a clean, functional appearance—less chrome and more touch friendly, more get-it-done. Making your documents look their best is now easier than ever. Office helps you create quickly with a menu of enhanced, professional templates and a list of your recent documents.

It’s sleek, streamlined and easy on the eyes with crisp animations, vivid colors and easy navigation with a mouse or touch.

Two keyboard modes—a full-size touch keyboard and a thumb keyboard—help keep you productive anywhere. On touch-enabled PCs, the keyboard layout automatically adjusts to the language you choose for Windows.

  10. 10. Office Reviewers Guide PAGE | 6 Office 365 for everyone Office 365 is now available to home as well as business and organizational users. Here are some of the features that are available to all Office 365 users. Settings move with you If you use Office a lot, you probably have things set up the way you like it—your Ribbon, your styles and other default settings. Even if you sign in to Office 365 on a different PC, everything will be ready for you to get to work right away. Always have the latest innovations Office is continually evolving. New and enhanced features and services are added all the time, and thanks to the cloud, Microsoft has greatly increased the pace of innovation. Because Office 365 is a subscription service, you always have the most up to date Office at your fingertips. You get the latest ways to work as soon as they are available, automatically downloaded and synched with Office on your desktop. With the subscription service, there’s no need to buy a new edition or upgrade. Stream Office to any Windows 7- or Windows 8-based PC with Office on Demand Ever wanted to get something done on a PC that’s not your own? With an Office 365 subscription you can. You don’t even have to have Office installed on the PC. Stream a full-featured Office application to any Internet-connected PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8 using Office on Demand. When you’re done, close the application and it will be removed from the PC. Connect to social networks easily Bring your online social networks to Office, complete with pictures, contact information and status updates. Rekindle old connections, ask questions, boost your business and more. It’s all possible with the latest version of Office, which includes built-in connectors that bring LinkedIn and Facebook into more of your Office experience. Office 365 is easy for anyone to manage.
  11. 11. Office Reviewers Guide PAGE | 7 Office 365 Home Premium and SkyDrive: any file, anywhere, automatically You want to access and share your documents and other files, but you don’t always have your PC with you. No problem—when you are signed in, Office 365 Home Premium saves your documents to SkyDrive by default. You can access them from any Internet-connected device. Want to save them to your local drive? You can do that, too. (Office 365 editions for business use SharePoint for document sharing, storage and collaboration. For more information, see the section on Office 365 for businesses.) With your documents stored on SkyDrive, you have what you need wherever you go—whether it’s a home to-do list or the latest version of a sales presentation. Putting your files on SkyDrive has other benefits, too. For one thing, they aren’t stored on a PC hard drive with a limited lifespan. If your computer goes down, your files stay up. And, if you’re collaborating with other people, you only have to keep track of one version instead of sending revisions back and forth by email. Going mobile? Access your SkyDrive files quickly and easily from your smartphone. Use the SkyDrive apps for Windows Phone and other compatible mobile phones, or just sign in from your browser. Either way, you’ll get your docs to go. Accelerate your creative process with collaboration built in. With Office 365 Home Premium and SkyDrive, people can work together even when they’re not together. Work on a vacation plan in OneNote with a family member. Post it on SkyDrive and invite others to review and do basic editing in their browser with the free Office Web Apps. They don’t have to have Office installed to get a great experience.

Keep people connected Office 365 for businesses helps you stay connected with new tools such as high-definition, multiparty videoconferencing in Lync, SharePoint Team Sites to keep team communications and documents in a single place, and newsfeeds to follow sites, documents and discussions to get answers in real time. With SharePoint, Office 365 delivers business-centric social networking designed to help people stay connected and innovate together.

  13. 13. Office Reviewers Guide PAGE | 9 Enterprise social networking with SharePoint Email, contacts, calendars everywhere The more places you can access email, the faster your business can move. Office 365 gives you the power of Exchange, the world’s most used email server, in a hosted service that is easy enough for even solo professionals and small businesses but powerful enough for the largest enterprise organizations. Exchange helps protect your email and data with powerful anti-spam and anti-malware services that are always up to date, as well as policy-based information protection. Now you can take enterprise-grade email with you anywhere. The improved Outlook Web App works on all major browsers and is optimized for touch navigation. And with Exchange ActiveSync, users can get email, contacts, calendars and tasks on a wide variety of mobile devices. Work together across your business Office 365 for businesses keeps everyone in your organization connected no matter where they are. Find the expertise you need with a SharePoint search. Detailed contact cards and presence, now integrated into all Office applications, help you connect and work with people from anywhere within the Office experience. When you find who you’re looking for, join in rich, interactive discussions and meetings with audio, video and instant messaging (IM) capabilities of Lync. You can start the conversation spontaneously by hopping from IM to voice to video, or send out online meeting invitations with a couple of clicks. Share ideas and content SharePoint helps you keep track of what your colleagues are doing by following people, sites and documents. You can get instant feedback on the documents and projects you’re working on delivered in realtime to your activity feed. Sharing documents or presentations with the people you work with should be simple, intuitive and always available.

You can publish and share documents directly to SharePoint from any Office application via the Office Backstage
  14. 14. Office Reviewers Guide PAGE | 10 View. When you need to work with colleagues, you can co-author documents in the browser using Office Web Apps. Keep teams in sync Prescriptive guidance is now built right into SharePoint. It guides you through setting permissions, creating document libraries, and adding a custom theme to your site so you can quickly set up a new team site. You can even provide external partners and vendorsaccess to SharePoint sites or documents with robust security while helping to meet the data governance and protection policies set by your IT department.

Gain insights anywhere with Excel and SharePoint Empower everyone in your organization to gain business insights. Mash up big data from multiple sources using PowerPivot. Explore data, visualize it and tell a compelling story using PowerView. When it’s decision time, share business intelligence-enriched reports and dashboards with SharePoint to give everyone access to the real numbers. Deploy it your way The cloud is the future of Office, but you can go there at your own pace. Not only can you install Exchange, SharePoint or Lync in your own datacenter, the latest releases of Office servers are built on the very same technology that powers Office 365. That means you can keep some users on-premises while others consume services from the cloud. Move to the cloud at your own pace. Test different configurations before deploying. Keep sensitive data within your firewall. Whatever the reason, it’s your Office—deploy it how you want to. And, you can even still get traditional, perpetual Office client licenses to install on desktops and PCs in your organization. With PowerView you can see actionable data at a glance.
