Microsoft Office 365 (Cloud)

Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

Microsoft 365 is a suite of tools to carry out common business activities and has been around for a very long time. I first started using these in the 1990s. We use Excel to process data in a spreadsheet. Word for recording internal documents. PowerPoint for presentations. OneDrive for backups and for backing up website data.
  • Data processing
  • Backing up your computer
  • Letters and minutes
  • Excel still has trouble with foreign characters when stored in CSV. I have to change the encoding via opening this in Notepad!
  • Could be quicker to load
  • At least the ribbon has remained the same. That UI change was annoying
  • Generous annual backup plan
  • Manipulation of spreadsheet data
  • Saving private documents
  • I preferred paying for this once and upgrading every few years rather than annually paying the fee
  • It's cheap for backing up WordPress websites
  • The platform is familiar

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


Are you happy with Microsoft 365's feature set?


Did Microsoft 365 live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Microsoft 365 go as expected?


Would you buy Microsoft 365 again?


It's good for saving private documents such as your business plan or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as the files are stored on your NAS or computer. If you need to share minutes from a Zoom meeting then Google Suite is better as you can share and invite people to view the document.
