Nowadays countless applications and services strive to support us in collaboration and productivity. When deciding on the apps to use, important criteria could be their seamless integration within the existing services and their built-in functions. Word, Excel or PowerPoint are evidently the most popular applications within Office 365, but there are many other less known apps you can use. These additional services of Microsoft 365 can offer a professional, cloud-based solution to almost every possibility from home to business. In this selection you can find some applications that can support you in organizing any types of events, keeping track of tasks and making scheduling easier.
Collect valuable feedback for your project
Microsoft Forms allows you to create shareable surveys, quizzes and polls in minutes. Whether it is a company lunch order you need to organize or the topic of the next workshop needs to be discussed, Forms provides an easy-to-use yet smart tool. You can add several options participants can choose from, also you can specify deadlines, display correct answers for quizzes, and set other preferences. Responses can be tracked real-time, while detailed analytics support you in having a response summary information and individual analysis.
Besides work, you can organize family gatherings or other programs more effectively with Forms, which also allows you to add different background designs or you can even customize it with your own picture. It runs on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and web platforms, so all your friends and family can access it via their various devices. Organize after work programs with colleagues, receive input for planning the menu and get instant group feedback on any last-minute changes.
Schedule your project
Once you have the necessary input for the project, date becomes the most crucial part to confirm. Microsoft Bookings has built in flexibility and customization options that are designed to fit a variety of scheduling needs. Editable fields will help you get all the relevant details during a booking and the email confirmation can be customized as well, adding a pleasant finishing touch after the appointment has been made. Booking page can also be limited for internal use only if necessary, so you can securely schedule a training within your team.
As a service provider, you can also streamline the process of making an appointment for your customers. The user interface is easy-to-use and customizable allowing you to strengthen the image of your business. From hair dressers and financial advisors to repairmen and photographers, Microsoft’s tool will offer benefits to every business, contributing to improving customer relationships and saving time.
Keep on top of the project
Following the feedback and the date, countless small tasks and questions could arise you need to cover. With a smart application as Microsoft Lists, you can track information and organize work easily. Whether it is your company’s inventory, emerging issues or specific tasks to do before an event, you can keep track of everything including the work of the other collaborators. You can set up rules and notifications to alert specific members when certain conditions are met, or when a member missed their deadline. Ready-made templates (like to track incidents, approvals or issues) save you the time of creating a document from scratch, however, you can always add personalized details by configuring basic form elements and highlight important details with conditional formatting. The integration with Teams will allow the creation of lists directly within the platform and allow for group members to chat on list items.
Outside the office, Microsoft Lists will help you to keep track of home renovation tasks, upcoming family events or travel checklists.
