In this article, we’ll cover 10 Office 365 tips that you can use to transform the way you work.

Collaborate With Your Team Members

With Office 365, people can make collaborative document edits in real-time. This feature helps you reduce wasted time sending documents back and forth and waiting for their edited versions to be returned.

Recall a Delivered Email

If you’ve sent an email accidentally or earlier than you wanted to, you can easily undo it on Office 365 using the ‘undo send’ feature. Using this feature, you can retract emails up to 30 seconds after you’ve sent them.

Search Smartly Using Smart Lookup

Using Smart Lookup, you can research unfamiliar words or phrases in your document. It makes the process of learning quick and easy.

Declutter Your Email

If you’re easily overwhelmed by cluttered inboxes, Office 365’s ‘clutter’ feature analyzes your email behavior. It determines which emails are likely unimportant to you based on your past behaviors. These are then placed in a ‘clutter’ folder that you can access whenever you’re free.
