Office 2016 for Mac

Are you considering upgrading to Office 2016 for Mac, and wondering if you should?

If you would you like to collaborate with others in your team, Office 2016 for Mac now is available with an Office 365 subscription. This means you can not only work offline, you can also work online, with others, in real-time. You can choose whichever option works best for what you need to do.

The new Mac versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote provide the best of both worlds for Mac users – the familiar Office experience paired with the best of Mac.

Office for Mac 2016 is cloud-connected, so you can quickly get to the documents you’ve recently used on other devices and pick up where you left off. New, built-in document sharing tools make it easy to invite teammates to work on a document together. When sharing documents, you won’t have to worry about losing content or formatting, as Office for Mac offers unparalleled compatibility with Office on PCs, tablets, phones and online.

Microsoft Office for Mac 2016 has adopted many elements previously found in the Windows version of Office for better cross-platform familiarity.

Word 2016 for Mac includes a new Design tab for quickly customising layouts, colours, and fonts while working on a document, and the multi-author experience has been improved. There’s a sharing interface at the top right of the app that allows multiple people to work on the same document at once, with threaded comments to communicate.

Excel 2016 for Mac helps you visualise your information by recommending charts best suited for your data with chart previews. Familiar keyboard shortcuts, auto-complete and improved formula builder save you time when creating spreadsheets or entering data. For deeper analysis, new PivotTable Slicers help you filter large volumes of data and discover patterns.

PowerPoint 2016 for Mac includes an improved Presenter view that shows current slide, next slide, speaker notes, and a timer, much like the PowerPoint for iOS app. In the top left, the presenter sees exactly what the audience sees, including animations in real time, for a better idea of how a presentation is going. There’s also a new animation pane for designing and tweaking animations, plus new slide transitions.

Outlook 2016 for Mac helps you manage your email, calendar, contacts and tasks. The improved conversation view automatically organises your Inbox around threaded conversations, so you’ll never have to go searching for related messages again. And message preview now allows you to see the first sentence of an email just below the subject line, so as you browse your emails, you can choose to read them now or come back to them later.

OneNote 2016 for Mac – If you haven’t used OneNote before, it’s basically a digital notebook, that you can access on almost any device. You can organise and share your ideas, quickly search for existing notes, and format your notes including adding pictures, files and tables. You can also share your notebooks with colleagues or friends, so you can work together as a group on tasks or projects.
