Simple Sharing, Cloud Attachments in Outlook

Office 2016 makes it especially easy to invite others to view and edit the same documents. A Share button sits on the right side of the toolbar in the major desktop apps: Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Office 2016’s biggest sharing innovation appears not in the major document apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) but in Outlook’s attachment feature. Microsoft knows that a lot of times users will download cloud-based documents and then email the files rather than send the colleagues a link to edit the documents in the cloud. That’s because setting permissions can be such a hassle. Who wants to email someone a link and then find out that they can’t open it or can open but not edit it?
In Outlook 2016, when you attach a document that’s stored in your OneDrive folder and email it to someone, the recipient is automatically granted edit permissions. If that person is using Outlook, the document even appears as an attachment icon the person can open. Somewhat annoyingly, though, when I double-clicked on the attachment for a Word doc I received, I was first taken to the Web browser and asked if I wanted to open the document rather than going straight to the Word client or Word app.

Custom User Groups Any User Can Create

In most organizations that use Office, if you want to communicate with everyone involved in a particular project or working in a particular department, you have two choices: ask the IT department to create a group mailing address for you or just remember to CC all the right people on every message.
However, with Outlook 2016, organizational users can create their own custom groups and invite people to those groups at will. All groups you are subscribed to appear below your list of email boxes in Outlook’s left windowpane. When you select a group, you can see a list of threaded conversations from members and you can also view a shared calendar for the group, a directory of OneDrive files and a OneNote notebook. After accepting your invitation, members can also add people to the group.

Join a group

I created a new group called “AvramsTestGroup” by right-clicking on the Groups header and selecting New Group. I was then prompted to choose a name for my group and set it to be public or private for invited members. The software did not allow me to add anyone with an email address from outside the organization.

Planner Helps Manage Projects

Whether your group is working on a shared project or just has a few rolling tasks, you can keep track of everyone’s work in the new Planner Web app. When I opened the Planner Hub, a Web-based dashboard with navigation to all of the organization’s “plans” (or tasks), I saw a list of available plans in the left pane and tiles representing the status of each plan in the right pane, with each tile showing how many tasks are uncompleted and how many are late, not started or in progress. By default, each group is listed as a “plan,” and you cannot create multiple plans for the same group. But I was able to create a plan without first building a group and assigning users to it.

When I opened an existing plan, I was presented with a set of columns, each with a list of tasks — presented as cards — underneath it. The leftmost column is a generic To Do column, while the others are custom Buckets to which you can drag tasks. In the sample “Coho Sales Team” plan that Microsoft showed me, there were buckets for Proposal Development, Reviews and Approvals, and Opportunity Kickoff. The card for each task showed the title of the task, its due date and the name of the person it was assigned to. If the assignee had attached a document or photo to the task, a screenshot of the file appeared in the card.

When creating or editing a task, you can write a description, add attachments or links, change the status, adjust the start/end dates, or add comments. The tasks are meant to be viewed not only by the assignee but also by other group members who can view the fruits of their labor and add their feedback here. It’s easy to see Planner replacing third-party project-management apps such as Basecamp, which offer a similar service but don’t integrate with Office. There’s also Microsoft’s own Project software, which costs extra ($25 per user per month for Office 365) and is much more complex.

New Excel Charts

Microsoft has added six new types of charts to Excel, which allow you to present data in fresh and appealing ways. The most intriguing of these is the Waterfall chart, which shows vertical bars pointing up or down from a baseline, with those below the line showing losses while those above show gains. While Microsoft says the Waterfall is good for financial data, we can also imagine it being used to track other mixed results, such as Web pages on a site that grew or shrank in traffic.

Office Themes Bring a Splash of Color

The bars and ribbons in Office 2013 are a stark white color that makes them really difficult to look at and distinguish from each other, particularly when you run Windows 10, which gives most programs a white title bar by default.
Office 2016 allows you to choose between this stark white theme, a dark gray theme and the “colorful” theme, which is on by default and gives each app a title bar and ribbon header that matches its traditional accent color. There’s blue for Word, light blue for Outlook, green for Excel and red for PowerPoint. With several of these programs open at once, I was able to tell quickly and easily that I was looking at a presentation or a Word doc, just from the color scheme of the UI around it.

Smart Lookup

If you’re viewing or editing a document, and you see a word or phrase you want to learn about, you can just highlight it, right-click and select Smart Lookup. Then a pane will appear on the right side of the application with some articles and photos from Bing about the phrase.

This works in all the major Office apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, and it even draws some context from surrounding text you didn’t highlight.

To check Smart Lookup’s ability do draw its information from context, I opened a new Word document and wrote two sentences using the word “notebook,” one about buying a “notebook computer” and another about writing in a “spiral notebook.”

I then highlighted just the word “notebook” in each sentence and fired up Smart Lookup. In the first case, I saw photos and content all about portable computers, but in the second, I was shown nothing but information about paper notebooks.

Another feature that has been added to the program is a box labeled “Tell Me.” You enter a comment in the box, and the program will automatically do the task for you instead of giving you instructions on how to complete the task.

Editing is now available in real time so that you can quickly finish any documents that you are creating without going back to proofread. This feature gives you the opportunity to see how others are editing your document on the screen while it’s being completed in real time.

OneNote is a must for students who need to be able to stash notes, ideas, web pages, photos, audio and video in one simplified interface. You can draw, jot and type up notes during class for easy reference later. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint have a beautiful new look that allows you to stay focused on your work with zero distractions.

One-time purchase allows you to take advantage of modern, full versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote for the life of 1 PC (Windows 7 or later, home use) Get started with 5GB of free OneDrive cloud storage and access your most important files locally or remotely from anywhere around the globe; Word features innovative editing, reviewing, and sharing tools so you can create professional-quality documents with ease; Excel boasts a modernized user interface to let you analyze and visualize data in a whole new way
