Office 365 Tips: What You Should Know

By Higher Information Group on November 24, 2021 | Technology Solutions

Microsoft Office 365 is a popular cloud-based subscription service that’s popular for business use. With collaborative functionality and seamless integration, Office 365 is the perfect solution for all the on-site and remote requirements of your business. It’s more important than ever before that you have the tools you need to stay effective and productive without the headache. Office 365 offers intelligent security, advanced device management, and innovative online services.

User Tips for Office 365

Office 365 is designed to be easy to use, but there’s always more to know. Here are a few tips to help you take advantage of the software’s full functionality.

  • Use Advanced Security: With features like multi-factor authentication (MFA) and Advanced Threat Protection (ATF), Office 365 supports comprehensive security with protection against ransomware. For more advanced security, you can also add password protection and expiration dates to highly sensitive files.
  • Collaborate: With Office 365, you can seamlessly collaborate, share, and streamline your workflow across platforms. To make the best possible use of collaboration, only assign permissions as needed to get the job done, but also use version control to track changes.
  • Use Analytics: You’ll gain insight into how you use Office 365 but also how you can visualize and optimize your usage. You can add a Data Bar to Excel to more easily visualize data.
  • Communicate: You can collaborate and communicate more effectively with calling, business messaging, file sharing, and video conferencing. You can also use Teams to communicate more effectively with your entire team without the need for emails. As part of the streamlined communication, you can bookmark content, name each chat, easily access transcripts, and use connectors to stay up to date.
  • Use 3rd Party Backup: Since Microsoft doesn’t guarantee a complete backup, it’s best to plan for and put into place a 3rd party backup solution that’s guaranteed to protect you against user error, ransomware, file deletion, data corruption, and much more.

The speed and increased functionality of Office 365 supports higher productivity and efficiency. You can do more in less time with less hassle than ever before. You get more bang for your buck, but you’re also able to better support your team no matter where they are located, in the office or remote.
