    Need an office suite? What are you waiting for?

    It’s hard for me to imagine how I can survive without some sort of office centric software. Recently, it seems that either users feel it’s unnecessary or they turn to some online or lightweight alternative. I have used Microsoft Office since the pre-Office 95 days, so I would say I’m somewhat familiar with the software. I have also used other office suites, both lightweight and online. I don’t know if I’m a Microsoft Office fan, but I can say there have only been a few cases in the past where I disliked the experience. Enter Office 365 – the most recent way to do Microsoft Office. With it, you can select a package that suits your personal or business needs and pay a yearly or monthly subscription to continue downloading and using the latest version of the software suite. Before getting into any of the functionality and usability of the software, I should say that this is a good model for those who use Office heavily. You can choose a limited or more elaborate package, dependent on your software needs, you always have the very latest version of the software, and it all comes at a very reasonable price. Because of this, I can’t help but recommend this option to heavy users. Well, how does it perform? Is it worth it? Very well, and yes. I mostly use Word, Excel, Access, and Publisher, if focusing strictly on the office suite. The layout is very natural and user friendly. Each environment has a familiar feel making the user experience more familiar and efficient. I can remember the days when you had to really have a grasp on the menu structure to make use of common functionality, but those days are all but gone. The more common controls and settings are visibly shown under the Home menu selection – the default. And to make things simpler overall, each menu displays its selections in a neatly organized array of graphic icons and control. This makes it much easier to find and understand the controls, settings, and options at your disposal. Microsoft seems to have done a splendid job in this area, and it definitely speaks to the consistency needed to make users more efficient. Also, there are many built in productivity aids assisting in producing excellent results efficiently. I mostly use Office on my PC, but Office is available on nearly all devices: Mac, iPhone, and Android, and all are available with an Office 365 subscription. The mobile apps actually work very well, but I feel having a larger phone is a bit of an advantage. I had no trouble opening documents on my mobile device, even some of my more complex Excel spreadsheets. I feel the mobile iterations of Office are very useful when you need to edit something while on the go. I don’t know if I would use it to create anything with complexity, but writing a paper or creating a quick spreadsheet can easily and comfortably be accomplished. Along with the productivity suite, Office 365 includes OneDrive storage and Skype minutes. For me, the OneDrive storage alone is enough to reel me in. OneDrive is very user friendly and flexible. It is fully integrated into Office 365, and overall aids in the experience. There is autosave built into the office suite for all OneDrive locations. Folders that are tagged for OneDrive, automatically remain synchronized in the background. There are OneDrive apps for PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android, making it very easy to access files anywhere on just about any device. Pictures, videos, music, documents, etc… all accessible and shareable. And about sharing, you can share files in OneDrive very easily. Then there are free Skype minutes. This gives you freedom to call anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. I find that Skype is more useful for me when I’m using my PC or when making video calls. I like the ability to have multi user video calls. I was able to call both my sons in a video call, and the call quality was surprisingly very good. I feel the OneDrive and Skype additions serve as big time icing on what is already a good cake. It’s hard not to recommend this software suite. Anyone that uses an office suite for daily work should no doubt consider Office 365.

    The Best Way to ‘Own’ Office, If You Really Use It

    Posted
    SamG

    Office 365 gets you every application that is available in the Office suite for up to 6 people and each of them gets 1TB of OneDrive storage. The cloud storage alone almost justifies the price. You also get the mobile apps as well. That being said, being on the subscription plan means you only get it as long as you’re paying for it. For someone who just needs Office for very basic or infrequent tasks it’s probably not worth it, but for everyone else this is the best way to get Office. Chances are if you’re looking at Office you already know why you need it. The core applications that have been there for years are all here; Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. They’re all the best they’ve ever been and Microsoft has done a really good job of gradually improving them over the years with some really thoughtful new features. Some of the more recent menu changes can be a little confusing at first if you haven’t used Office in a while, but I adapted to them quickly. You’re also getting OneNote, which has been my favorite Office application ever since it first came out (and happens to be the one you can get for free). There are a few little niche apps that are available, but not installed by default. Sway is really interesting and I haven’t used it much yet, but it feels like a more personal take on something like a presentation or even a vacation album; something you might use with your friend and family instead of a meeting in the conference room. There’s also a to-do list app and a pretty decent mobile scanner app. Office 365 integrates into Windows 10 really well. It’s optimized for touch and mouse input, though I will always feel most productive using a mouse and keyboard. The look and layout feel clean and organized and it’s consistent across applications. There’s a lot of features packed into each application, but the ones I need the most are always easy to find. Saving files to OneDrive also has the advantage of letting you autosave and share like Google Docs and it feels just as seamless. I’ve been a Microsoft Office user for a long time, so there’s probably a little bit of bias here, but Office 365 feels like peak Office. I don’t love having to pay a yearly fee for it; it feels like everything’s turning into a subscription these days, but I do feel like Office is better off for it. You can still buy Office without paying the subscription, but it costs more up front and you’re missing out on the best it has to offer buying it that way. The cynic in mean knows Microsoft is probably doing that on purpose, but it’s hard to ignore the value.

    Good value

    Microsoft Office 365 is the subscription version of Microsoft Office. It has the same Office applications as the traditional desktop versions, and provides regular updates through the year, including new features that would appear first on the Office 365 versions. For someone that depends on Office, this alone is a good value. While desktop license keys allows installation on one computer, the Office 365 licenses are tied to the user's Microsoft account (Same as in Outlook.com and Microsoft Accounts on Windows 10), and also family members (As associated in Microsoft accounts). It allows installation on 6 computers through the family group, and applies to both Windows and macOS computers. Additionally allows installation on mobile devices (Apple phones and tablets), and Android. Also, the Office 365 subscription provides valuable online features not available on the standard desktop license: - One hour of skype-out minutes, per month, per user (To US and certain areas in other countries). - OneDrive: OneDrive is Microsoft's cloud storage offering, which works well and is available on desktop and mobile systems. It can be uses to store and sync all office documents and OneNote across devices, as well as any other type of file, including pictures, and what's impressive is that the Office 365 subscription includes 1 TB per user in the family. This is an excellent value for anyone that relies on cloud storage. - And, if office documents are stored on OneDrive, there are now online versions of Office that can be accessed via a web browser, so start a document at home, edit via web from another computer and finish it via mobile apps. The Online version works well enough for simpler documents and was even able to convert a PDF to a Word document all through the web browser. Also storing documents on OneDrive makes it much more efficient to collaborate on, and share documents.

    Great subscription to work more efficient

    This Microsoft Office 365 subscription is a great deal because it comes loaded with many features. An added benefit is that the membership is shareable with up to five users. I share my membership with children who do virtual school. Office 365 is essential for them to work most efficiently. Even when traveling, they can satisfactorily complete all their assignment. The subscription allows the user the ability to use the latest downloadable version of Office. When on the move or not working on your computer, the cloud/online version of Office is available on any device. For optimal usage of Office 365, I highly recommend to backup/sync all of your Office files and documents into OneDrive. You will work more efficiently and flawlessly especially if you work at different locations or devices. I use Excel a lot for school and accounting work. The online version of Excel works perfectly without any issue. When needing switching from the online version to the installed version of Office apps, OneDrive makes it very easy. The membership also includes Skype bonus features, Outlook and online Help Support which are also great services. To conclude, Office 365 subscription is essential to work more efficient at home, work or school. Highly recommended!

    The "Subscription idea" has many benefits

    Posted
    AlanD963
    • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network

    I’ve been a Microsoft Office user for years and at first was unsure of the idea of a ‘subscription’ to Office, but the more I read the details the better it sounded. If you purchased the regular home version of Office 2019 for $149.95 it would be for just one user’s devices, you get just three of the Office apps and of course no upgrades as the years go by and no storage space. The subscription provides SIX Office apps, plus Skype and one Terabyte of storage on OneDrive each for up to SIX different users with upgrades each month included all for $99.99 a year. I had a chance to use the free Microsoft support feature with my subscription when installing Office 365. I had an issue with my Microsoft account. I opened chat and a VERY helpful agent plowed through all the details with me and got me up and running with efficiency and a sense of humor. I had been using Microsoft Outlook 2010 on my computer and I was worried that when I upgraded to Office 365 I might lose all my saved emails in the transition. It was a needless worry. I removed Office 2010 which was on my machine (It was a 32-bit version and I installed the 64-bit version of 365 and the two didn’t play well together.) When I first opened my new version of Outlook I thought I was going to have to give it all my Comcast email details but lo and behold, all my emails were right there. It took care of everything behind the scenes. Bottom line, it seems like a no-brainer to get the ‘subscription 365’ if you’ve been using Microsoft Office all along anyway. If you decide at the end of the year it wasn’t worth it, you could always cancel and go back to the version you’re using now.

    I must admit that I am a "newb" to Office 365. My most recent version was Office 2016 Pro Plus. For some reason I had the false belief that the 365 variant was just a pay version of Microsoft's online offering. And (as usual) I was wrong. Since my internet speed in my home office is relatively fast (usually around 300Mb) I decided to download the ISO instead of the regular online installer. Upon clicking install, I was informed immediately that 365 and my previous stand-alone version would not play nice together. So I hesitantly uninstalled 2016 Pro Plus. Am I happy that I did? So far, a resounding YES! All of my documents/etc are still there. Everything I was used to previously. The 64bit version is a nice touch as well. "My Office" is now the hub to all the office programs. What is even nicer is that you are given 1TB (yes terabyte!) of OneDrive storage, and 60 minutes of Skype minutes each month. Just for using the product. These are definitely bonuses that I wasn't expecting. Now for the super-duper-coolest part - you can invite 5 other people to install office 365 (and they also get their own 1TB of OneDrive, and Skype minutes each month!!!!) In my opinion, those who haven't switched to the 365 variant SHOULD. As from what I understand, the standalone version will not receive updates and/or support as much as 365. What's to lose? And, if you decide to decide to sign up with automatic recurring payment, you will get a 13 month subscription instead of 12. All of this together, tells me that Office 365 is the way forward. And a positive way forward for Microsoft with their office suite. Get it!

    Resistance Is Futile, Go With The Subscription!

    I have been using MS Office programs since Word 1.0 (and WordStar before that) and I have always owned my software and have been resisting the subscription service model for the longest time. Fortunately I went back for a Master's and taught for years so I could always get the education edition but now I can't. That being said, I have finally come around to the benefits of the Office 365 subscription. Microsoft has added on a bunch of benefits in addition to their dominant Office suite (sorry, the free stuff just doesn't cover it). The online storage and now the multiple accounts with multiple installs across platforms makes this a no-brainer. I would upgrade my software usually every other major revision and when I broke down the price it ended up being either the same as the subscription (at least early on) but now would actually be more expensive. More so if you include all the new benefits that the legacy suites didn't have. That, and always having the latest and greatest version is also very nice. There are still some software subscription packages that I think are still a rip-off but I no longer think the Office suite is one of them. You get a phenomenal amount of value out of all the programs and online storage. It is just my wife and I and I consider it a great value, if you have a few kids as well, this is an even better deal. Resistance is futile, but now I don't even want to resist. Microsoft made the deal so good, I'm running for it.

    I must admit that, in the past, I've always purchased stand-alone versions of MS Office products for my family's computers. However, over time, the number of computers and therefore the various versions of MS Office have grown as I (and my children ... now adults) have replaced older computers, transitioned from desktops to laptops, and even migrated to and from Apple products. Still, throughout it all, we always used at least five copies of MS Office even though we sometimes struggled with some compatibility issues between the versions of software and had to remember to save files in formats compatible with older versions of the software. That said, I am pleased that we're all on the same version of MS Office now and although "renting" the software from year to year is taking me a little while to get used to, I'm beginning to think it was somewhat inevitable ... especially as Microsoft moves in that direction as a business model. As I see us continuing to be MS Office customers in the coming years, at least I don't have to worry about the various versions of software and which to upgrade and which to wait until I buy a new computer. All in all, I'm pleased with the transition and purchase.

    It’s very easy to get started. All you have to do is follow the instructions for the digital download. You go to the Office website address listed in the instructions and enter the product code. Select auto-renew and enter payment details, or choose not to auto-renew, and Office installs and you’re ready to go. If you have a good high speed connection you can be up and running in a matter of minutes. If you sign up for auto-renewal, Microsoft will give you an extra month free. I’m not a big fan of subscription based software but the plus is you will always get the updates when they come out and you get Outlook, which you don’t get with Office Home and Student. It’s also nice to be able to use the software on multiple computers since my wife and I each have laptops plus the desktop at the house. I didn’t notice any big changes from previous versions of Office as the basic layout seems to remain the same, which is always a plus as nobody wants to have to relearn software they have become familiar with over the years. There are a number of free office programs out there you can use but we always end up going back to Microsoft Office due to features, compatibility and ease of use.

    It was with some trepidation I bought the Office 365. I have never bought software with a "subscription" before. I have been using MS Word and Office for over 20 years now on various platforms (MS DOS, Windows, Mac OS, Classic Mac's). I have always bought the "full" version and eventually would get the new version either when I got a new computer or if I felt I needed an updated version. Well, now with having a couple of computers at home that are mine (MacBook and iMac) and a new Dell Laptop that is my wife's along with her old laptop it made sense to get a multi-license product. I got this on sale for $79 (discount with a new PC purchase) so it made sense to try for a year. I was able to download Office 2015 on all the computers mentioned about plus added the mobile versions to my iPhone, my wife's iPhone, and my iPad. The 1TB of OneDrive space for EACH user is great too. I didn't really use iCloud in the mac's due to the piddly 5GB without paying for more storage, but the 1TB one drive space is great. I can save my commonly used files there and access from any of my devices. It works well both on Windows and Mac. I haven't used the "online" version much but do like the new 2016 full versions. They do take a little getting used to but its not a long learning curve.

    I am usually slow to adopt cloud-based services, but Office 365 has changed my perspective. ( I first downloaded all of the programs thinking in the same old way of having a tangible (offline) version; then I went and set up my OneDrive and then started using Office 365 in a totally online experience. I love it. Regardless of what computer I am using (I use several throughout the day), I can access and update my files without having to have them on my computers' drives. I was so impressed that I moved my email access to outlook 365 for the same reason. Cloud based. I do need to note that I am having issues getting emails to deposit into certain files on the online version. There are rules set but the online is not sifting through incoming and putting these certain emails where I want them kept. Likely a user problem but I want to be fair that this is an issue. I did not have this issue with the one on my main laptop where i used the "program" to do some archiving early on.

    SO... I've used various versions of Office for decades. A few years back I made the switch from Windows to Mac (And never looked back). At that time I got Office for Mac and have been very happy with it for the past several years. I decided to upgrade my iPad to a new iPad Pro and BestBuy was offering a bundle for Office 365 - 5 user including Mac and iPad. I was resistant at first to go "subscription" vs "owning" the disk; but I've grudingly come to accept that this is the new way of the software world. On the good side, I've already gotten several updates - so you are constantly up to date. Haven't used Outlook on the MAc; not sure I will. I like several things about Outlook and still use it at work on a PC; but I also like the simplicity of Apple Mail. One of my biggest interests in Office 365 was OneNote. I've played around with it a bit and I think it will soon be my "go to" application for arranging and storing various types of data. All in all - I'm happy the Office 365.

    Microsoft finally came up with a easy and affordable way for users of Microsoft Office products to legally use them. I bought the license for 5 computers at home, My wife, son and myself use it for School work, and installed the software on the 3 computers without a major hassle. The only confusing part for myself was the fact that when you setup a new computer using Microsoft Windows, you are asked to enter your email information and password, I have my account with outlook, and that is what I did; then when you activate office the first time, it needs to be linked to an e-mail, I used the same outlook email as my computer. When I entered the information in my son's computer I had to use my son's e-mail for his computer, but when you activate the Office software the first time, I had to enter my email information and password in order for Office to work on his computer. The good thing is that is only the first time and from then on, it does not require it again. I had to do the same thing in my wife's computer. For anyone that is setting this up for the first time, keep that on mind.

    I have been using Office 365 for a few years now and I have been very happy with it. It allows me to use the whole suite of office products that I have installed locally on my computers. Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, OneDrive, OneNote, Publisher are all included. OneDrive you get 1 Terabyte of data for each user (6 total users are included) I use OneDrive to back up all of my files for a safe and secure online storage. I have had to use it to restore after a hard drive failure and it worked great. I highly recommend having some sort of back up system and an online one such as OneDrive is a great feature to have in case of natural disaster or destruction of your home. That feature alone is worth it for peace of mind. All of the office products work as you would expect them and they are constantly updated to keep them protected from the latest exploits or bugs.

    I've used Microsoft Office for decades. I've always been reluctant and upgraded only when I had to. But newer technologies such as cell phones, tablets, and the Cloud it created a whole new computing environment. So I finally took the plunge and upgraded to Microsoft Office 365. It now runs seamlessly on my PC, my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, and my new Samsung S9. All my documents are easily stored on the cloud and visible from multiple platforms at once. I can literally update a document on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and see the results on my PC simultaneously. On my PC it runs much faster than MS Office 2010. It was worth the wait. And there were two surprise bonuses: it literally copied all of my set up and recent documents from my Microsoft Word 2010. And it did not remove MS Office 2010 from my PC. So I can literally run two versions of Microsoft Word simultaneously if I have the need.

    If you do any office work, you're likely familiar with Microsoft Office. The Office 365 Home bundle includes all the apps you need (Excel, Access, Word, PowerPoint, etc.). Plus, they're always up-to-date with the latest releases. The package is pretty handy, since it allows you to have up to 6 people using the software at the same time. My wife and I are able to keep an Excel file for our budgeting needs, and we can modify these files online as well. We can also collaborate on the same document at the same time, which is very useful. With this subscription, you also get a terabyte of OneDrive storage, which is great for backing things up (we use this to back up our personal computers and photos from our phones). If you're looking for a great deal on Microsoft Office, this is easy to recommend.

    I think everyone has used some form of "Microsoft Office" whether it was the original or a generic version. But we can all agree; the original is great because the programs universally do all their respective task seamlessly and are the gold standard when it comes to such type programs. I got the opportunity to test out the online download version of Office 365 for Home. I will not talk about each program and everything you can do with them because there is just too much to cover (obviously). However, I will tell you that the download was quick (even on slower internet) and set up is a snap even when using the “Share” option (require multi-user version). It is nice to have everything already in the correct format instead of having to convert files. No complaints!

    Office 365 is a great option for multiple devices

    The old model of licensing was great for one device, but Office 365 is a great value for multiple devices including computers, iPads, phones, etc. One license covers them all. The beauty of the subscription based Office products is that it is constantly updated. No more paying for multiple upgrades. The software installs easily and with the addition of One Drive, all documents can be shared from one location. Create a document on your laptop and access it from your tablet, mobile device or virtually anywhere with access to One Drive. While it seems expensive, it is quite a value if you can use it on all of your devices. Microsoft Office products are the standard and almost a necessity for business folks, students and home use.

    It's Microsoft Office - Needn't Say Much More

    It's Microsoft Office. Besides your operating system and probably anti-virus software, it's essential for anyone with a computer these days. Who can get by without Word, Excel, and in some cases PowerPoint. I know some people access those programs through Google Docs. Personally, I find Google Docs to be one of the worst programs ever made. Difficult to print from and difficult to share. I like having these programs resident on my machine. I understand if your subscription is web based, you might not have access to these essential programs if you don't have access to the internet. (I don't know that for sure, but I was told that.) This particular subscription was discounted with my purchase of a computer, and I bought 2 systems (for 2 nieces) so this version, which allows installation on up to 5 systems, covered both of them.

    Office Suite for the family

    I have 2 kids and a wife in college and I also have 2 kids in high school. At first I did not think this was going to be a good buy but after thinking about it more and more, it made more sense for me to buy this one instead of a 1 PC Office Suite. Technically, you are not buying the software you are buying the right to use it with this Office 365. The good thing is that you can share this subscription with the whole family and they do not have to just use it on a laptop. This subscription is good for Windows PC and Laptops, Macs, Android devices and iOS Devices. You can save your files to the OneDrive and pull up all files on the go either on your phone or tablet. You are not just confined to 1 device.
