Office 365 FAQs


Our online training is designed to re-create the classroom experience as closely as possible.

It is a live training session using Zoom or Teams and the trainer is present throughout.

The training is still hands-on so you do need to have the software installed on your own computer.

The trainer will share their screen with you as they demonstrate techniques and there is the option of sharing your screen with them if you are really stuck!

Yes. We provide all attendees on our course with certificates.

This means that in future you can prove to people that you have received professional Microsoft 365 training.

Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based productivity suite offered by Microsoft. 

With one Microsoft account, you get access to all the core Office suite applications of Access, Excel, Planner, PowerPoint, Outlook, Sharepoint, Word, as well as newer applications like Teams, OneNote and Skype for Business.

This software is used by hundreds of millions of people around the world to create and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets and presentations which are held in the cloud. It also allows you to seamlessly organise video calls and online meetings using Teams.

You can use it on any internet-connected device including Windows PCs, Macs, iOS devices and Android phones and tablets.

You can download and install Microsoft 365 onto five devices.

Teams is a cloud-based app or workspace, that combined file-sharing, video & voice calling and instant messaging. 

Teams in an integral part of Microsoft 365 but is also available for free as a stand-alone app.

This means that if someone invites you to join a Microsoft Teams call you can do so, even if you do not have a subscription to Office 365.


In a word, yes.

Microsoft 365 contains a number of different applications and so it can take time to get comfortable navigating between them all but it is designed to be quick and easy to learn.

Microsoft Office 365 is a great skill to learn, helping with your personal development towards and promotion and helping you to manage an ever-increasing workload more efficiently. Our courses cover essential skills and foundational knowledge as well as advanced topics and deep dives into more complicated areas.


On April 21st 2020 Microsoft changed the name of Office 365 to Microsoft 365.

Technically the product is now called Microsoft 365 but so many people still call it Office 365 or Microsoft Office 365 that the two names are used interchangeably for now.

Unfortunately, Microsoft offers a number of different Office 365 plans for its cloud services.

The more expensive packages include not only the Office apps (Word Excel and PowerPoint etc) but also more advanced collaboration tools, some of which are only appropriate for very large enterprises.

As an individual, the page you should look at is here: Office 365 – Personal Plans.

If you access Office 365 through your company, your subscription will be organised by your employer’s IT department. However, you can see the different plans available here: Office 365 – Business Plans.

The key difference between Office 2019 and Office 365 is how they are paid for.

Office 2019 is a one-time purchase whereas Office 365 is an ongoing subscription service. So if you pay for Office 2019 you own it and can use it forever without paying any more for it.

There are a few other differences though as you might expect:

  • Microsoft Office 365 continually updates. As Microsoft pushes out updates your subscription will automatically update your applications. Office 2019 will be maintained, so security patches and the like will be provided, but will not receive new functionality and tools.
  • Office 365 includes lots of other applications and services – for example, Power Automate, Sway etc – which Office 2019 doesn’t include.
  • Office 365 is integrated with other cloud services (Teams, Skype, Power BI etc) and so works as a genuine cloud service.  The simplest example of this would be that you can login to Microsoft Outlook on the web using Office 365 but obviously need to have an email server to point Outlook 2019 to.

Unfortunately, this isn’t simple, sorry! You’ll need to check your subscription.

At the time of writing this, some subscriptions include free upgrades from Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows 8.1 to Microsoft Windows 10. Others include a full Windows 10 licence, and this is likely to evolve over time.

A competent Microsoft Office user can get comfortable with Office 365 in one day.

If you are not already a confident Office user then it will take a little longer, perhaps two or three days.

Office 365 is intuitive to use, which means that it is quick and easy to learn to use.

Being a confident Office 365 is fundamental to careers in most organisations, especially where those corporations have remote workers.

Across almost all industries from banking and law to construction and mining people are increasingly mobile and distributed which means that they rely on Teams and SharePoint to communicate and collaborate with each other.

Microsoft Office 365 is applicable to a wide range of people, including IT professionals, industry professionals and small business owners, as it helps you to collaborate with your team and do your best work together.
