Microsoft Office 365 (Online) Conversion
Has your workplace recently changed to Office 365 for Business? This conversion course will help you get to grips with the Cloud and collaborative working, using Skype for Business, and OneDrive. We aim to combine technical training with exercises around smarter working and behaviour changes that can be prompted by new tools.
Please note that we will be using Office 365 for Business, rather than the standard Home version of Office.
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.

Did you know...
...every organisation implements Office 365 slightly differently?
Happy are experienced at 365 rollouts and we can create learning programmes that will help your teams work effectively and make the most of the new tools available. Alternatively, if you're not using the online tools but have upgraded to the Office 365 desktop apps, we run sessions on the new features in the desktop apps.
