Office 365 Valuable Features

Girish Vijay
Deputy Manager IT at Carl Bechem Lubricants India Pvt Ltd
1. Admin Console, control on allow, block, and quarantine list - always top feature as an admin. 2. Strong sharing control options in One drive & Share points. 3. Microsoft Teams (instant message or audio or video conference with excellent quality). 4. Easy integration with Microsoft Windows environment. 5. Outlook is or was an all-time favorite email application for most of the users, IMAP or Exchange configuration for sending and receiving emails are very easy and frictionless. 6. Outlook is capable of integrating multiple calendars and it can enable add ons like Webex/go-to-meeting/teams/team viewer etc... 7. Seamless integration with third-party partners for email security aspects. 8. Quarantine email alerts to users to allow the email to their inbox (tricky but handy) - tricky if one doesn't have third-party email security, handy if one has got good third party email security).

Head of Solutions Delivery (Systems) at a wellness & fitness company with 201-500 employees
It's nice that it's an all-in-one solution and everything is all in one place. You can have your meetings, your meeting history, you can record meetings, you've got a place for meeting notes, you can create your task board, or have planner boards, or you can use other tools like Trello within Teams. Just the integration that it gives allows us a lot of different other platforms in basically one place, and it's good to have everything at our fingertips if and when we need it. View full review »

The thing I have found most valuable is that the product is quite simple for end-user so there is not much reason to use the product support. The support for users is good and adapting the product from the user's perspective is quite easy. The uptime of the solution is quite good, I can say it has about 98 to 99% uptime. The product is also easy from the standpoint of administration, especially for the IT team. We have good control over who has access to the program components and what parts they can use. In terms of the IT team, it makes our work quite easy. We do not need to spend too much time monitoring the solution because it is quite good. Security-wise, it is also good. There is multi-layer authentication which I think is good from a security standpoint. And finally, the reporting is also good. View full review »

Cloud Security Lead at a security firm with 1-10 employees
What I like most about Office 365 is its reliability and that I haven't experienced any outages, it's always worked fine for me. It also has a unique 'giving' feature in that if I go for Office 365 licensing for a particular license level, Microsoft also offers me other services along with Office 365. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the integration with OneDrive, which has allowed us, a small business, easy access to a cloud environment, with no need to back up the data from five different computers. The multiple-user editing capability is helpful, improving the productivity of our team on creating and editing files together, even when in different physical locations. File formats that are the market standard (docx, xlsx, pptx), is an important and relevant need to deal with clients' provided files. View full review »

I don't distinguish them much at all from what I can get to, just with normal software installed at the desktop. For example, the tool called OneNote, I have not used it because I don't see the need to. View full review »

Everything about the solution is useful. Outlook is great. We like that there's SharePoint connectivity. The OneDrive is amazing. I love all of the applications being interlinked. I do not have to separately work on an independent system when it comes to file storage, email, and other tools. It's great that there's also one single sign-on and all features are available.

The functionality that is most valuable is the solution's ability to detect patient data in email attachments. Whenever a user sends out an email with patient data embedded in an attachment, it triggers an alert. The tool can detect a social security number and various other forms of patient identity. Emails are then automatically generated and sent. View full review »
