Reinventing Productivity Across Outlook, OneNote, OneDrive, & Other Office 365 Tools


Resident 365 Ninja Rachel Wilson started the day with a session on what it means to “reinvent productivity” with Office 365. It’s a phrase we’ve heard from Microsoft lately, but what does that actually mean on a day-to-day basis? Rachel covers how Office 365 helps businesses and end users reinvent productivity across areas like team collaboration, content creation and documentation, gaining new insights and discoveries, and individual task management in tools like Outlook, OneNote, and OneDrive for Business.
