Something New In Microsoft Office

on November 14, 2019 No comments

There are a number of companies that use Microsoft Word to type, format and store documents. They use Microsoft Excel to create financial reports and track inventory. They use Microsoft PowerPoint to share information at Seminars and corporate training.

Today I just read a post on Tech 2 and it said they are creating an app that merges all three software packages into one. Now, I haven’t seen it in action yet, but it would seem to me that having access to all three applications in one app would be very convenient.

When I am doing a proposal or preparing for a presentation, I have to pick one application where I create and manipulate my data. Then I have to take that same data, copy it and paste it into Word Doc to send it to the client. Once that is complete, and they want a presentation, the copy and paste thing happens again.

If I could create one document and migrate the data easily between the three, and even share the date from a previously printed spreadsheet, how awesome would that be? Pretty awesome I think.

The Article, written by TECH 2 News Staff, on November 5, 2019 states:

At the Ignite conference in Florida, Microsoft has officially announced that it is beginning to publicly test a new version of the Office app that combines World, Excel and the Powerpoint app. This app will be available for both Android and iOS.

The app is now as a public preview on Android and as a beta through Apple’s iOS Test Flight program. The final version of the app is expected to release on both platforms by February 2020.

Microsoft says that with the new Office app users will be able to create new documents, presentations, and spreadsheets as well as edit and view existing documents. You’ll also be able to “snap a picture of a document” and make it into an editable Word file, create and sign PDFs, or “transform tables from a printed page into an Excel spreadsheet.

It sounds like a pretty powerful tool. I also like that I can run it on my phone in case I have an idea and want to make changes to an existing document while I am away from my laptop.

This is the link with instructions on how to load the app on your Android Phone from the Google Play Store. If you are interested, give it a try and let us know what you think. We are not endorsing this product, and if it doesn’t work as expected, please contact Microsoft, not UTS.
