With office 365 being used more and more by businesses, we have put together some office 365 tips and tricks to show some of the other apps that are included in the subscription that may help you along with an insight into how these apps would work inside your business.

One Drive

One Drive is Microsoft’s equivalent to Dropbox or Google drive, it allows synchronisation of files over different devices and allows you to get access to this data wherever in the world you are. NOT FORGETTING IT IS GDPR complaint – See our post about cloud storage and GDPR *Here*


A simple and effective way to manage projects with your team. If you’re thinking about dedicated Project Management Solution, and don’t already have one within your business. Then Microsoft Planner could be a useful stepping stone before spending time and money on a dedicated project management systems.


Think PowerPoint younger and more exciting brother. Sway is a different way to present to clients without death by PowerPoint. Purely a web-based application allows you to add content from the web and social media very easily.

Office Online

If you already use SharePoint and OneDrive, then you’ve probably seen the option to open documents within the web browser. Although cut down versions of the desktop apps, these really lend themselves to collaboration, real-time editing of documents with your co-workers.

One Note

I love pen and paper, but paper can easily get miss placed and pages lost within notebooks. With OneNote, your notes are automatically synchronised across all of your devices, Android and Apple too! What’s more, you can easily share them with others and publish them directly to SharePoint.

Microsoft Teams

The new kid on the block, Microsoft Teams is a mash of Skype, Calendars, OneNote, and SharePoint. It’s certainly my new favourite addition, albeit very similar to the very excellent Slack app. It brings together Office 365 apps that you group together for your department

Staff Hub

Actually, Staffhub is the latest addition to the Office 365 family. On first sight, it just looks like Excel spreadsheet for organising the staff rotates and shifts, which isn’t far from the truth. But what if that spreadsheet allowed to staff to view it via mobile app, swap shifts with each other and allow you to manage staff holidays. Designed for retail, hospitality and manufacturing type businesses, staff without desks and computer access.
