- Microsoft Word: Best for composing and formatting any kinds of documents. There are so many advanced features in Microsoft word that's really helpful. Formatting - in general, easier on MS Word plus have a lot more options than other software (everything from table of contents, styling, cover pages, page numbering etc. are much more feature rich and capable than other software).
- Microsoft Excel: I think this is the best software from Microsoft Office 2016. I love using MS Excel. I use it for very simple to very complex things, but it is not a database. This software contains multiple worksheets and this can link between in same file or other files. It can perform great calculations.
- Microsoft PowerPoint : If you want to make a formal presentation, one of the best supportive tools you can use to create visuals for those attending is Microsoft PowerPoint. It can be found in Microsoft Office 2016 for both personal and business use.
- There should be more purchase choices available for Microsoft Office 2016.
- If new types of charts are updated into Microsoft Excel then it would be more helpful for its users.
- Microsoft Outlook is a bit confusing to set up and use because of its numerous options.
We are currently using Excel 2016 to track and evaluate weekly project performance through the collection of performance data and evaluating the data through the compilation of metrics and charts/graphs. We use Power Query for the engagement of different sets of data and to automate the updating of the performance metrics and graphs.
Word is used to create/distribute processes and procedures. PowerPoint is used to create meeting briefs and of course Outlook for day to day communications and then I personally use OneNote for the compilation of general notes and information. We are currently migrating to O365 where we hope to tap into the many collaborative features that come with O365 and the SharePoint environment.
- Power Query (now known as "Get & Transform" under the Data tab in Excel 2016) and Power Pivot greatly enhance data engagement and removes many of the limitations previously found in Excel regarding the size of data the user could engage with. The interfaces in both Power Query and Power Pivot are really intuitive and one could find themselves quickly putting together data automation with little to no coding knowledge. If you haven't heard of Power Query (like the many people that say Excel is obsolete) please YouTube it...It's great!!!! The addition of the Power Query add-in makes Excel a real game changer.
- I'm really appreciating the direction I see Microsoft heading with their latest product offerings. It's more team-centric with focus placed on collaborating with multiple stakeholders. Especially when you find yourself in the cloud and working with O365.
- Portability, I enjoy being able to engage my files regardless the platform I may find my self on; tablet, pc, laptop or smartphone.
- The wealth of free training material available from Microsoft is a big plus. I've never found myself engaging an issue where the answer wasn't just a web search away.
- I would like to see Power BI desktop to be made a part of the Office Suite.
- VBA is the Power Behind the Curtain in Microsoft Office
- It’s fun to criticize Microsoft Office tools as complex and hard to control. Beginners are daunted by the feature set, and experienced users still find certain features to be perplexing. It’s true that in some cases, a special-purpose, non-Microsoft tool might better suit your needs. But think of Office as a huge toolset that is jammed with untapped features, and the more you know about them, the more you’ll appreciate and rely on them for sophisticated solutions.
- The most significant untapped feature of every Office app is the built-in, user-accessible programming language. It’s called VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). With a qualified programmer, VBA can manipulate the user interface features such as menus and toolbars, drive custom user forms and dialog boxes, import and export data to other Office and non-Office applications, and accomplish almost anything your brain can conceive.
- Just as it’s impossible to list everything that software can do, it’s impossible to list what VBA can do. Suffice to say that, if you see anyone at work perform the same task more than once, it’s worth investing in a VBA macro to perform that task for the rest of time.
- If you’re willing to invest in VBA macros, you’ll see that they create efficiencies that far outweigh or totally eliminate the frustration you may have had with an individual feature.
- Microsoft Office 2016 is exceptionally stable, which means I'm not fighting with updates and incompatible programs.
- Office documents are universally-accepted around the world, and converters and emulators just don't do the job quite right.
- Office runs offline, which means I don't have to worry about connectivity issues working with an online-only program.
- Office (Excel and Word) works on Android, so I can review and edit documents on the go.
- The subscription model is kinda disappointing, but everyone seems to be doing it, so I guess I can't complain.
- Microsoft Excel is an excellent tool with all its pre-programmed tools and functions.
- Microsoft Words allows to create documents easily and it's the go-to tool for technical writing in engineering.
- Microsoft Powerpoint is really easy to master and creates excellent presentations, and since almost everybody uses Office all the presentations can be displayed at almost every computer.
- The ability to activate the developer option in almost all of Microsoft Office programs allows us to automate several of the tasks needed to do on a regular basis.
- The programs are really compatible. For example, creating different documents with Word by using Excel databases is really easy and consumes almost no time at all.
- When automating processes with Microsoft Excel it sometimes need lots of processing power. If it was made somewhat lighter and the iterations faster it would be great.
- Powerpoint presentations can be a little bit rigid and the transitions could be smoother.
- Microsoft Word sometimes feels a little bit clunky, especially when working with titles and page breaks.
- Excel spreadsheets & charts.
- Powerful Powerpoint presentations for use by our sales personnel.
- e-mail which affords us the opportunity to communicate effectively, organize our correspondence.
- Menu options for accessing specific features could be more easily located or arranged.
- Help menu could more powerful with more specific solutions.
- Customization could be easier.
- Very user-friendly, easy to use.
- In Microsoft Excel, you can use formulas to add up prices automatically, so you don't have to keep using a calculator- it automatically calculates it for you.
- In Microsoft PowerPoint, it is very easy to use and it can really make a presentation look amazing! I love all of the different options.
- For Microsoft PowerPoint, I would like to see more themes added.
