Microsoft Office 365 User Training

Office 365 is a subscription based software plan that offers businesses access to Microsoft Office applications and other services over the Internet, or ‘cloud’. The business suite includes Skype for Business web conferencing, hosted email, Office Web Apps and OneDrive. Certain subscriptions also integrate Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access with the Office 365 Cloud.

Once you have invested in this software, it’s important that you and your team understand it’s interface and functionality to benefit from its tools and become more productive. At first, it can be confusing and the range of new features may be daunting. The Microsoft Office 365 User Training Course will help you use the new cloud-based system with confidence and improved efficiency.

During the course, the main components of the software will be identified and outlined, before being looked at in-depth with actionable skills to take away. This includes features such as sharing documents with OneDrive, creating and editing documents in the cloud, shared calendars, group meetings and much more.

At Burningsuit, we suggest that attendees should be reasonably competent users of Microsoft Office to make the most of this one-day training programme. It is also important to be aware that the applications included with Office 365 are dependent on the organisation’s subscription type.
