Microsoft 365 Apps you didn't know about
Microsoft packages are pretty familiar to us all in some capacity or another. For the most part you know about Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Excel, but the Microsoft 365 package is so much more than this. You get a lot more than the big 3, and we are here to tell you some of the apps and programs you may not have known about!
Making appointments with team members, clients and other contacts is a breeze with the Bookings app. You will be able to schedule appointments with anyone and also send invites where the proposed attendee can select the time and date, which then gets automatically added to your calendar.
This can help make your workday streamlined and productive, which is the ultimate goal when it comes to having a successful business.
Power Automate really is your pal when it comes to mundane repetitive tasks. This lesser known app in Microsoft 365 can really aid you in your day to day and can help to remove human error from boring monotonous tasks.
“How does this magic work?” I hear you ask. It works by connecting lots of Microsoft 365 programs, creating workflows using actions that you use the most. You can then make the automations so that you don’t have to think about those regular daily tasks!
It can also inform other apps of changes, can sync files and post messages in apps like Teams.
“Facebook for businesses” is how a lot of people are describing this app. Connect with like-minded people across your business with a ‘birds eye view’ of what’s going on in the company. You can use this no matter your size and is a great tool for getting information and notices out there. It can also be used with other apps such as sharepoint and Teams, so is easy to integrate into your workday!
If Powerpoint and Canva had a baby, this would be the result. In Sway you can create beautiful but professional looking documents that you can share with your clients. You are able to take content from online sources, changing aspects and having an end result that is both professional and stylish.
The best part about this is that you don’t have to spend the time or money getting documents professionally made, you can do it all yourself using your 365 package!
Who doesn’t love a good to do list? Well this one is pretty fancy and will have your workforce organised in no time at all. Not only can you put your tasks into a list you can also track progress and prioritise your lists too.
You can share the lists with anyone you need to and give people a nudge if something hasn’t been completed.
This is also great, much like the other apps, as it works well and integrates well with the other apps within Microsoft 365 as well as being available on your phone too. Great for those on the go moments you think of tasks that need to be completed.
That’s just five of the brilliant apps that the Microsoft 365 package has to offer; there are so many more to choose from. All of the apps work with others and can be integrated to give your team the best organisational skills and productivity possible.
