Microsoft Office 365 (Cloud)

Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

We use Microsoft 365 [(formerly Office 365)] to manage most of the collaboration and communication within our university. We use it for e-mail, calendar, chat and communication, and documents (and sharing of documents). It helps bring all of our communication and documentation into a single location, easily shared throughout our organization and teams.

  • Sometimes the design can be confusing
  • Notifications in the Teams app are non-native on the Mac, so they are annoying and hard to control
  • Teams for chat and communication
  • Document creation tools
  • Sharing and collaboration features for documents
  • Cloud storage
  • E-mail
  • It makes collaboration easier
  • Everything is integrated
  • Fulfills need for an e-mail solution
I haven't used many alternatives for Microsoft 365 [(formerly Office 365)], as Microsoft still seems to be the standard for office applications. I have used Apple's iWork applications (Pages, Numbers, Keynote), which I like quite a bit better for use on the Mac. They are better design-wise, but they don't offer an option for Windows users and don't really compare as far as a complete packaged office solution like Microsoft 365.

Do you think Microsoft 365 delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Microsoft 365's feature set?


Did Microsoft 365 live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft 365 go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft 365 again?


I would say Microsoft 365 [(formerly Office 365)] is well suited for any organization or team, but specifically for larger organizations. Smaller teams may not need such a wide selection of applications. But an organization looking for a solution that includes everything needed for document creation and collaboration tools will find pretty much everything they need in Microsoft 365.
