Casual users may believe that that the applications that make up Microsoft Office 2016, which include PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Outlook, Access, OneNote and Publisher, are pretty much the same as their predecessors. However, this is just a misconception as Microsoft has definitely rebooted its flagship software suite and the update has provided us with a horde of collaboration capabilities that integrate better with OneDrive and SharePoint. If you are confused about the enhancements and tweaks made, here is a list that will make it easier for you to understand exactly why you should get the MS Office activation key and take advantage of the new stuff:
Easy Document Sharing: Sharing documents in Office 2016 has gotten really simple with the help of the ‘Share’ button in the Ribbon. This button is available across Excel, Word and PowerPoint and enables you to share access to a document to other members of your team. It is also a one-stop location for reviewing access permissions to see who is currently working on the particular document.
Improved Versioning: Did you accidentally delete some content a while back and just found out? Did you end up making a mistake while editing a document? Office 2016 gives you the opportunity of viewing historical versions of the files directly from PowerPoint, Word or Excel. All you have to do is go on File, open History and then you will be able to see a full list of all previous versions of the document in the History pane. You can simply choose your required version and open it in a separate window. This feature can be immensely useful when you wish to review earlier drafts of a document when you are collaborating with others or editing a file.
Co-authoring in Real Time: The desktop version of the Office suite 2016 finally offers you the ability of working on the same document with your colleagues simultaneously. Any PowerPoint presentations or Word documents that are saved on OneDrive or SharePoint can be opened by several colleagues at the same time and they can work on it without overwriting the changes made by another. However, the ‘real-time’ typing feature has only come to Word for now whereas PowerPoint only supports co-authoring.
Additional Chart Types: There were a lot of people who had been previously using MS Office 2010 with an MS office 2010 key thought that the selection of charts provided in old Office had gotten somewhat boring. The good news is that Microsoft decided to add a whole bunch of charts to Excel and this will enable users to do a better job when they wish to visualize hierarchical and financial data. Some of the new charts that you can use on Microsoft Word and Excel include Histogram, Waterfall, Treemap, Whisker, Pareto and Box.
While these are the most noticeable features offered in the Microsoft Office 2016 update, they are not all. You can also take advantage of Skype integration, Smart Lookup, support for Office Groups 365 within Outlook, one-click forecasting, better cross-device support and the capability of sending large files through OneDrive.
