How to take advantage of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 to become more productive

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 is one of the most remarkable installments in the Office suite by this large enterprise. It continues to have one of the best word processing to date, Ms. Word, and the well-known Microsoft Excel, which is the preferred option to create spreadsheets for data entry and similar processes, to mention an example.

This new installment marked the arrival of several new features and improvements that have made the whole suit perfect for collaboration and productivity. If you’re unsure how you can use it to improve your performance, here we have a few tips you can consider if you’d like to become the best version of yourself within a few weeks.

1.  Co-authoring in real time

Co-authoring has been present in Office for several years, but now we have access to it in real-time – as long as you’re connected to the internet, of course. You will be able to see what other users are doing in a certain document and vice versa.

This feature is available for mobile and computer devices. Thus, you can take your work with you to any place.

2.  Sharing documents easily

Office 2016 allows you to share documents straightforwardly, no matter what app you’re currently using. You will find the “share” button at the top-right corner of any of the Office suite applications. Clicking on it will take you to different sharing options. Now, you can share your results with people without necessarily stopping what you’re doing.

3.  Improved version history

Office 2016 had a great focus on collaboration, and this feature proves it. Now you can see the different versions of a document via the “History” tab on the File menu. This feature is accessible in the major Office applications, like Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

4.  Smart attachments

Before Office 2016, it wasn’t very pleasant to find the exact location of the file you were editing. You don’t have to lose time by finding a particular document anymore because you will be able to see a list of all the recent documents when you select the required option in Outlook.

Outlook will always keep a list of all the documents you’ve recently worked in. It can make sharing files even more straightforward than it already was, allowing you to become more efficient.

5.  OneNote notebook sharing

If you often use Ms. OneNote, you’ll be glad to hear that now you can share it with your teammates easily. This application works pretty much with all of the pieces of media available at the moment, so it can become an excellent resource for your team to work smoothly and quickly if you take your time to learn how to use it.

6.  Clutter in Outlook

If you’re tired of dealing with junk email now and then, we recommend you to take a look at the Clutter option available in the new version of Outlook. It allows you to prioritize each email, choose which ones to remove and which ones to keep. Thus, you’ll be able to keep the mess away from your email and focus only on what’s important.
