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 shares their screen to demonstrate techniques and there is also the option of being able to share your screen if you are really stuck!

Depending on the class size, which we still keep to a maximum of 8, questions can be asked at any time or at set points throughout the day.

The trainers like to see you! They much prefer it if you have a camera on so they can see you as well as you being able to see them.

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.

Please come wearing whatever you are most comfortable in, we do not have a dress code.

Most people come wearing casual clothes.

Both of our courses cover Microsoft Teams.

Our half-day Microsoft Teams course is focused exclusively on Teams and so gives the most in-depth coverage of Teams.

Our one day Microsoft 365 course covers Teams as well as OneDrive and other aspects of Microsoft 365. Therefore it doesn’t cover Microsoft Teams in as much depth but gives delegates a better overall understanding of how Microsoft Teams fits into Microsoft 365 overall.

Nothing!

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 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 a large number 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.

This will vary depending on your PC, your internet connection and how many apps you are downloading.

So there’s no straight answer to this but it’s unlikely to be done in under 10 minutes. If it takes more than 30 minutes (with a good internet connection) then my probably have an issue.

There are lots of Office 365 tutorials that show end-users how to install Office 365 properly, and Office 365 basics to get you started if you’re unsure. Obviously this is something that we cover in our Office 365 courses as well!
