Office 2016 is now available. A few years ago, Microsoft introduced the latest version of its famous productivity suite, which includes a number of updated features aimed at making businesses and individuals more efficient.
Is it time for you to upgrade to Office 2016 Professional Plus? That is a highly personal question that is largely influenced by how and why you utilize Microsoft Office in the first instance, as well as how you get Office. If you need more convincing, here are numerous explanations why Office 2016 Professional Plus might be worth the investment.
- Collaboration In Real Time
The capacity to undertake real-time collaboration or co-authoring is a feature that competitors productivity packages have had for a yet Microsoft Office has lacked. In Word and PowerPoint, co-authoring allows many people to collaborate on the same project (or presentation) at the very same time, even if they're on separate devices or software platforms. Microsoft Word also allows individuals working on the article to see where others are altering it in real time.
- Improved Email Efficiency
For years, email applications such as Microsoft Outlook have featured spam filters that can distinguish real communications from spam. Many allegedly genuine emails, on the other hand, do not necessitate rapid attention. Outlook 2016's Clutter function separates critical emails from unnecessary ones, allowing you to focus on what is important. Messages that are deemed less important or frivolous are placed to the Clutter folder, where you can review them at your convenience. Clutter improves its effectiveness over time based on which communications you move from Clutter to your Mailbox and which emails you discard without opening from your Inbox.
- Smart Lookup
Smart Lookup, a new context menu option, provides fast and easy access to a variety of data about a string of words. You might find the definition of a term by right clicking it in previous versions of Office, but Smart Lookup goes a step further. Smart Lookup gives you more information about the selected word or phrase, such as Wikipedia entries connected to it.
- Tell Me
When Microsoft releases a new version of something, one of the most common complaints is that functionalities are no longer available where they were before. By providing a straightforward way to find everything and anything, the new Tell Me feature in Office 2016 Professional Plus virtually eliminates this problem. A light bulb symbol with a text field with the phrase "Tell me what you want to do..." is located to the right of the main menu. Here you can type anything you wish, such as "alter typeface to Times New Roman" or "green the text." The Tell Me tool reveals features and options linked to your request as you write. You don't need to recognize where Microsoft hid the menu in Office 2016 since Tell Me will help you discover it much faster.
Sway isn't new in and of itself; however Microsoft has included it into the Office 2016 package. Sway integrates aspects of OneNote, Word, as well as PowerPoint to make producing compelling presentations easier and quicker. Sway is still a Windows 10 program that needs to be downloaded from the Store. It's also currently part of Office Online for phone and iPad.
