For many of us, the rise of the remote workforce comes as no surprise. For years now, office workers have been abandoning their desks in favor of settings that are farther afield and allow them to work in a more comfortable, and often more productive, environment.
When it comes to business, social networks can provide secure spaces where teams in different offices, cities, states or countries can communicate and collaborate on projects in real time. They allow people who may never meet to discuss project details, divide and conquer tasks, discuss clients' needs, and generally come together to accomplish a common goal.
Microsoft Teams is core to our vision for intelligent communications—bringing together conversations, meetings, files, Office apps, and third-party integrations—to provide a single hub for teamwork in Office 365. Teams is now being used by over 125,000 organizations across the world in just six months since its launch.
It’s said that those who live in the past have no future, and the same can be said of organizations that refuse to embrace all that modern technology has to offer. Whether we like it or not, today’s business world is fast-paced, and it can often feel impossible to keep up with ever-changing trends.
Qvidian, the provider of cloud-based RFP and proposal automation software, today announced a significant update to its flagship solution: an integration with Microsoft Office 365. This integration enables content reviewers and subject matter experts to simultaneously edit RFP and proposal content in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats.

SharePoint lists have long been used for planning, tracking, collaboration and data management. They’re used to track everything from t-shirts and lunch orders to NASCAR race standings and public health programs.
Taking advantage of cloud services doesn’t have to be difficult or a long-phased migration project. At Microsoft Ignite we announced a new free, simple, and fast migration solution to help you migrate content from on-premises SharePoint sites and file shares to SharePoint or OneDrive in Office 365.Based on the learning and experience from Microsoft FastTrack, using the SharePoint Migration Tool from Microsoft with a few simple clicks you can begin to bring your information to the cloud and take advantage of the latest collaboration, intelligence, and security solutions with Office 365.
Whether you’re looking to migrate from file shares on-premises to SharePoint or OneDrive or from on-premises versions of SharePoint, the SharePoint Migration Tool is designed to support the smallest of migrations to large scale migrations with support for bulk scenarios.
Take your intranet with you to stay connected and informed about important content, news, sites and people while on the go – for those in-between moments. You can easily get back to what’s relevant to you, alongside powerful search capabilities to find what you need, plus provide feedback via comments and likes – all to keep work moving forward.
You can now connect an existing SharePoint team site to a new group in Office 365, to improve your team’s productivity with the content and resources of an Office 365 group, including:
A shared mailbox for group conversations in Outlook
A shared calendar to track deadlines, events, and team vacations
Planner to manage tasks, and
The option to create a team Microsoft Teams for as a hub for collaboration.
One of the coolest collaboration features in Office 365 is Office 365 groups. Your employees can create these groups on the fly and use them to collaborate with their co-workers on projects, sharing team documents, emails and calendars. These groups are easy and fast to create and judging by their usage telemetry, they are VERY popular.
