Those who have embarked on o365 training in the past may need to pay attention to the latest news that Microsoft is planning on releasing some updates on its Office 365 software.
Earlier this week (August 30th), it revealed its Outlook, Inking, Office Online’s in-app support, Office’s Mobile app security and Visio will be spruced up over the next few months to improve user experience.
Firstly, its changes to Outlook will see people gaining greater access to information about their contacts, which will help commercial customers in particular.
A spokesperson for Microsoft said: “Clicking on a co-worker’s name helps you discover more information about them, including their organisational chart, who they commonly work with (powered by the Microsoft Graph), Office 365 groups they’ve joined, as well as recent emails, files and meetings you have in common.”
Those using its graphics application Visio will now be able to use Visio Online Preview and Visio for iPad, enabling users to view and share diagrams and access them via the iPad respectively.
Its Inking update will see three new capabilities, including its OneNote Ink math assistant, replay inking, and new ink effects.
The former helps users to solve handwritten maths equations by coaching them and providing detailed answers to the problems. Replay inking lets users to replay inked note sessions, which is good for storing detailed instructions and sketches.
Its latter Inking update provides new ink effects – silver, galaxy and rainbow.
These are just a few of the new developments for Office 365 and come after Microsoft introduced four add-ons to further assist users. These include Yesware email tracking to find out if your emails have been read, Keluro for easy sharing of emails, DocSend, restricting access to emails and attachments you send out, and FindTime, to help you find an available time for a meeting between you and colleagues.
