As we have discussed many times before, there are not enough hours in the day to complete all of the tasks we and others put on our plates. We commit to so many things that unfortunately many fall through the cracks or get put on the back burner. Microsoft has come out with a solution to help us manage our tasks and time management. This new tool is called “Briefing Emails” and will be released later this summer.
Age-old questions are a dime a dozen. Did the egg come first or the chicken? If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make any noise? And a most pressing one, should we put one or two spaces in between sentences? Well, thankfully, Microsoft is answering one of these questions for us. They are taking the stance; less is more. In a time where space is being enforced wherever we go, it feels good to allow our sentences to get close and comfy.
We have spent a significant portion of this year breaking down the differences between Office 365 and Microsoft 365. The similar names are confusing, and it is challenging to decipher the differences between the applications. Thankfully, Microsoft was aware of the confusion and is gearing up for a grand rebrand on April 21st. Now, these products will have the same encompassing Microsoft 365 umbrella. The hope is that this rebrand will ease the confusion and simplify the choice of which application is right for you. Active with this rebrand are not just name changes, but additional tools. These tools will be brought to you by Microsoft’s smart and intuitive Artificial Intelligence (AI).
We are currently traveling in uncharted territory. Many of you have worked remotely for years, where others are still trying to figure out the logistics of how to physically work remotely. And even if the location of your work hasn’t changed, the feeling or the environment is different. Many of you will be working today with your spouse and kids surrounding you. We have new terms like social distancing and every situation is fluid and evolving. These are new times, so we need new tools to help us find as much efficiency in the way we are working.
As we have discussed over the past few weeks, Microsoft 365 and all that it includes can be quite confusing. It consists of all things Office 365 and so much more. We have given you verbal and visual descriptions of how the two products are similar and how they are different. We’ve broken down many of the essential terminologies as it is used and referenced. Now that you hopefully have a better understanding of the two Microsoft offerings let’s break down the barriers even farther and answer a few of the more commonly asked questions regarding Microsoft 365.
As we have discussed already this month, understanding the differences between Microsoft 365 and Office 365 is quite challenging. Last week, we provided a grid breaking down the differences between the products. To take things a step farther, this week, we are featuring a glossary. Even if you can see the differences, if you don’t understand Microsoft’s terminology, the grid will not truly help you understand the differences.
There is a great deal of confusion when it comes to deciphering the differences between the two similarly named Microsoft offerings: Office 365 and Microsoft 365. Many businesses think they have Microsoft 365 when, in reality, they have Office 365 or even more commonly, most do not understand that there is a difference. In this week's blog, we are visually laying out the differences.
