Office 365 is Microsoft's smart and simple answer to cloud computing. Using the various programs in Office 365, you can do all the tasks you're used to doing in your favorite Office applications - write documents, create presentations, check email, manage your calendar, crunch numbers, and more - and then share what you create in real time on a team site, design and publish a website, and even create and host live online meetings while you're traveling on the train, sitting in a coffee shop, or dialing in on your phone.
This book shows you how you can use cloud computing - and specifically, Office 365 - to get more done, collaborate more easily, and work more flexibly than you ever have before. From the necessary how-tos about creating and administering your Office 365 account and working with the various Office 365 programs to sharing files with your team, creating a team site, using Office Web Apps, and holding online meetings, you'll discover how easy it is to work online and off, accessing and sharing your files whenever you need to. After you learn about each of the core programs, you can try strategies for building successful teams, and get some good ideas on practical ways you can put all this cloud power to work.
