Maximize Your Microsoft 365 Experience: Essential Productivity Tips

Microsoft 365 offers a suite of tools designed to enhance productivity and streamline your workflow. Whether you’re working solo or collaborating with a team, these tips will help you get the most out of your Microsoft 365 experience.

1. Personalize your default settings for Office Desktop Apps

  • Time stamp in video: 0:50

  • Tip: Set your preferred default format for Office Apps when opening them directly from Teams. This ensures a consistent and personalized experience every time you start a new document or open the document from Teams.

2. Version History

  • Time stamp in video: 2:25

  • Benefit: Keep track of changes and revert to previous versions of your files with ease. The version history feature is a lifesaver for managing document revisions.

3. Teams Chat Files

  • Time stamp in video: 3:25

4. OneDrive Access

  • Accessibility: Quickly reach your OneDrive from or sync it to your File Explorer for seamless file management and access across devices.
