Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Office 365

We use Microsoft Office every day. Microsoft Outlook for checking emails and communicating with customers and suppliers, Microsoft Word for documentation, Microsoft Excel for reports. Besides those, I use Microsoft Visio to draw diagrams for my coding tasks and Microsoft Onenote for taking notes. We also use Skype for Business as a primary communication channel.
  • Includes very strong tools for your office works, such as Word and Excel.
  • One account can be used on multiples devices, even one that is your phone or tablet.
  • The data is synced between devices. One that is especially useful is OneNote. I can take notes anywhere and anytime.
  • The performance sometimes is quite slow. I've even had the program crash.
  • OneNote in Office 2016 is not supported anymore. No more updates. Microsoft recommends us to use OneNote in Windows 10 but it is simple and lacks some advanced features such as Import Diagram from Visio. I have to export the diagram to an image and add it to OneNote. Then I have to repeat these actions every time I update my diagram.
  • It offers a unique experience for all employees.
  • Much easier to work with customers and suppliers since MS Office is the most popular format.
  • Life is easier with cloud sync. I can continue typing on my phone an email which was created as a draft on my laptop.
MS Office 365 is more powerful than others. They provide us more advanced features. One thing is compatibility when we work with our customers and suppliers. We can exchange data in a very common format. Another thing is MS Office 365 is being updated frequently with more stable and secure updates. That is an enterprise need.
I didn't have any experience with customer support from Microsoft for MS Office 365. I will update when I'll have used this.

  • When you are using one application in MS Office 365, it has very good integration between other applications inside MS Office 365.
  • If you need advanced features to work with your documents or data, you will need Word and Excel to get your work done. Otherwise, you can go with free tools that offer basic features.
