Course Requirements

You should be confident in creating and saving documents in Office, as well as using Outlook (or similar email programme).

If you are not confident using computers, then please take a look at our Windows 7 Essentials and Windows 10 Essentials courses first (currently only available as a group or one-to-one course).

If you would like to learn more about SharePoint and setting up a SharePoint Library, please see our indepth two-day SharePoint Essentials course.

What You Will Learn

This course will highlight the new features in the Office 365 for Business suite. You can look at what the Cloud means for the way you work, access the portal and all the 365 tools (particularly OneDrive) from multiple devices for more flexible working. Skype for Business can help you collaborate and communicate and, used wisely, it can reduce email overload.

After a customised solution for your team? Contact us for details and availability – we can deliver this at your offices or at our training centre as a half-day or full day of training, depending on your needs. We can create something more bespoke for your organisation either to include your particular setup or to emphasise other Office 365 tools – just let us know what you need. If you would like to learn more about SharePoint and setting up a SharePoint Library, please see our in depth two-day SharePoint Essentials course.
