Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Publisher

There is access to Microsoft Publisher for every employee, but it is not used by everyone. I mainly used it to [create] invitations, certificates, or posters advertising events at the college. It was easy to use, had templates that made it easy to create whatever document I was trying to create. And once I had made, for example, one certificate it was easy to just change the information and use it again and again.
  • The templates are great
  • It’s very user friendly for anyone familiar with Microsoft suite
  • It’s easier to manipulate images on your workspace than using Microsoft word
  • More options or more blank templates
  • User friendly
  • Easy to master
  • Comes with the Microsoft suite
  • It’s just been helpful to create some basic documents
Microsoft Publisher is more for beginners, or for basic needs, anyone with some familiarity with the Microsoft suite should be able to use it easily. If you’re looking to create something more graphic and advanced, you’d probably want to look into something like InDesign, which is not as user friendly if you’re not familiar with it at all. For basic needs the average employee should be able to use Microsoft Publisher with ease.

[Microsoft Publisher is] great for creating documents like invitations or certificates. It comes with templates that help you get started. It’s easier to manipulate your text and images than just using Microsoft word. If you’re looking for something more graphic, you may want something more advanced (like photoshop or indesign) but for the occasional basic need this will do the job.
