Email, Instant Messaging with Teams, Teams Video Conference & Mobile Outlook Application. Office 365 works very well with Microsoft Windows ECO system without any friction. Microsoft Teams video conference is a very good tool to have instant or scheduled video conferences, the quality of the video and audio is excellent but requires good internet bandwidth. As an email Admin, control aspects are top-notch, it could email quarantine details, block, allow domains, etc. especially Microsoft email filters (Spam, Malware, etc) with a basic standard subscription are on par with leaders in Email filters (Like Symantec, Barracuda, Cisco). These features are really handy for small and medium organizations. Outlook configuration for receiving and sending emails is very simple.

We use it primarily for collaboration across teams. We use it to collaborate either via email or we use Teams quite a lot. For all of our meetings, we are now using Teams. Then we use the planner boards and things in Teams as well for keeping track of the work that we need to do.

My use case is mainly the email solution of Office 365. I use the exchange online for my emails, corporate emails. I use OneDrive for saving my data on the internet, and the other good features are Excel, Word and PowerPoint online, which allows me to create online documents. I also sometimes use Microsoft Teams within Office 365. We generally use Teams for our video conference meetings and presentation meetings. We also sometimes use SharePoint to share documents with people outside our organization. I am a cloud security lead and we are users of Office 365.

Our primary use for the product is for performing office tasks like word processing for critical business staff. I work with the product mostly from the administrative side but also have experience using the product itself.

Our team is comprised of five people in a small consultant firm. Office 365 allows for all team members to work on the same files at the same time on OneDrive while using the market standards (Excel, Word, PowerPoint) for file editing and creation. We've experimented with free options, but there is no point of trying to work in a file format that is different from that of our clients. That's the main reason that led us to Office 365. All of our workstations are Windows 10 and Office runs perfectly.

I am a business consultant and have worked in business continuity for about eight years. I work for factories, banks, government, and other organizations. I use different methodologies that depend on the customer's requirements. I have found that Office 365 is one of the best tools for business continuity, for small companies.

We use it throughout our business for email and documents. It has allowed us to stop maintaining SharePoint and Exchange installs.
