With Office 365 becoming more widely used and the decline of outright "Office" purchases, 365 has a raft of programmes ready to be taken full advantage of right at your fingertips. Let's take a look at some of the programmes/features included with an Office 365 subscription!

Office Suite

The Office Suite within Office 365 is much like the traditional Office products of old. Containing: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, Publisher and OneNote. OneNote is a programme that you may not have come across or used before but is a versatile and incredibly useful programme. It is a way to write notes freehand if using a tablet, save files to and much more. Microsoft class it as a "digital notebook" which will be able to replace the need for lots of paper or notebooks everywhere! OneNote syncs seamlessly between devices like the other Office applications do, so you are able to edit from any device. Whether that be a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone - you will always have access to your latest draft of your notes!


SharePoint is an online platform designed for collaboration. SharePoint empowers teamwork with dynamic and productive team sites for every project team, department, and division. Share files, data, news, and resources. Customize your site to streamline your team’s work. Collaborate effortlessly and securely with team members inside and outside your organization, across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.


Teams is a chat based platform that allows for employees to easily communicate instantly with other colleagues whether that be privately or in a “Team” which is essentially a professional group chat. With Teams you are able to share files, emojis, start video/audio meetings and even schedule meetings all within the one window.


Securely store and share files from anywhere. OneDrive offers native desktop, browser and mobile experiences on your devices. Access and make changes that sync automatically in the cloud or sync local copies of files for offline viewing and editing on your PC or Mac. Confidently share your files so other people can access them seamlessly and securely.

As you can see, Office 365 is much more than just Word & Powerpoint but a completes suite of products! Not only this, but as an Office 365 subscriber, you will also have the latest versions of all software!
