Office 365 in October—online tools, Microsoft AI

The world map was updated to reflect the latest availability of Office 365, including Antarctica and the Republic of Congo.

Office 365 provides the broadest and deepest set of apps and services with a universal toolkit for teamwork, giving people flexibility and choice in how they connect, share, and communicate. Today, we’re excited to announce the addition of 96 new global markets, bringing Office 365 to over 246 markets worldwide in 44 languages. This month, new apps and features help organizations of all sizes around the globe accelerate their digital transformation and allow every user to produce compelling content that is accessible to all.

New features power content creation

This month, we continued to improve the intelligent services in Office 365 with a new set of cloud-powered features designed to save you time and produce better results.

You can now translate sections of text, or your entire document, and review or save the result as a regular document file. Translator supports 60 languages, including 11 that use neural machine translation, providing superior quality and fluency to help you work more confidently. To get started, navigate to the Review tab in Word and select Translate.

These highlights make it less demanding to perceive and redress blunders as you compose, enhancing perusing and altering exactness for everybody, particularly clients with learning incapacities, for example, dyslexia.

Cloud enhancements make file management easier

As people create and work together on more files across multiple devices, it’s increasingly important to be able to access your important content—both from your work and personal life—all in one place. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether there is enough storage on your device or if you can access your files on an airplane.

OneDrive Files On-Demand—With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can get to your OneDrive and SharePoint documents simply like some other record on your PC without topping off your plate space. “Online-just” records download on request with a double tap, and you can change them back to “online-just” again to free up space whenever and constrain the effect to your corporate system. Documents On-Demand works with your own and work OneDrive, and also your SharePoint Online group locales.

3D files in OneDrive—We’re continuing to expand the types of content you can interact with in Office 365. New 3D support in OneDrive helps you organize, share, and increase your visual and creative impact with 3D objects. Now you can open and view your 3D files in the OneDrive app and at OneDrive.com without any browser plug-ins before importing them into Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.

Expanding our online toolkit

We’re continuing to make Office.com and our browser-based applications more powerful, so you can do more with whatever device you have in your hand.

Visio Online—Earlier this month, we introduced Visio Online, a web-based version of the popular Microsoft diagramming tool, to provide a simple yet powerful way to work visually on the web. Visio subscribers can create, edit, and share diagrams online, making it easier to visualize complex information in new ways.

Entrepreneur helps clients transform with Office

Mellicia Marx is in the business of transformation. She runs Poplin Style Direction, a personal styling business that ensures a client’s look is on point. She’s helped new mothers revive their wardrobes, and other clients dress for new office environments confidently. “I love watching people transform,” she says.

Mellicia helps people understand which garments best complement their shape, personality and lifestyle. She teaches them how to shop, what to wear and how to wear it. Mellicia finds the secret style sauce that elevates each client.

Polishing a business’s image

Mellicia also knows that the success of her business depends on styling, too. The look and feel of her business and good communication with clients are key to growth. Through her website, she introduces clients to the styling process and options, and provides a private client access area where she shares personalized advice with each client. The website also includes her blog, the “voice” of her business, where she offers styling advice that has proven to be a powerful tool for attracting clients.

Mellicia finds Microsoft Word to be invaluable to maintaining her online presence because it makes it easy to share information with her web designer for needed updates. “Word is user-friendly,” she says. “You can figure out everything you need to do in five minutes or less.” She also spends a lot of time traveling between clients, and Microsoft Officemobile apps help her keep business moving when she’s not at her desk. “I have Office on my iPad Mini, so I can view and make edits to a document and respond to my designer or other contractors quickly.”

Structuring work-life balance

While rewarding in its freedom and creativity, being an entrepreneur can also make it more challenging to find work-life balance. Mellicia’s business is built on relationships, and nurturing them takes time. Efficiency in her personal life is crucial. “Word helps me organize our home life,” she explains. For example, she uses Word tables to organize her son’s activities, and to coordinate with the families of his friends who do the same activities or camps. “It keeps us all on the same page.”

Weaving retailer data with client needs

The amount of data involved in styling can be overwhelming. “I share a giant, complex spreadsheet with a contract stylist. We use it to track brands, online retailers and boutiques,” Mellicia says. “My Microsoft Excel sheet is a vital resource.”

The spreadsheet contains information Mellicia can use for clients, and in her blog and social media posts. It includes trend, sizing and style data categorized by brand and retailer. “Excel lets us easily sort this information depending on the task at hand,” she says. For example, she uses the split planes feature of Excel to focus on a single client and see which retailers may carry a needed item. She also easily searches the data to find a specific size or trend item. “It would be impossible for me to track this information without Excel.”

Mellicia and the contract stylist share the spreadsheet online, so the information can be updated easily by either of them. “It’s exciting to open up the spreadsheet and rediscover retailers or brands I may have forgotten about,” she explains. “More resources for me means more resources for clients—and all in all, it lets me do my job better.”

Mellicia’s also considered some of the newer features in Excel, like Maps. “This could become useful for our marketing,” she says. With Excel Power Maps, I could plot client locations and use this information to create Facebook ads targeted to those areas or host an event where a concentration of clients is located.”

Giving back with panache

Despite her busy schedule, Mellicia finds time to give back as an entrepreneur. She volunteers with YouthCare, a nonprofit that provides services, education and training to homeless youth. Mellicia hosts styling sessions for youths, ages 16–24. “I help them translate the authenticity of their personal style to clothes that are appropriate for job interviews and work,” she explains.

Mellicia uses Microsoft PowerPoint to give presentations at YouthCare. “It’s great for these kids to be exposed to business tools like PowerPoint,” she says. “Also, my whole team of volunteers uses it—so if I can’t make it to a presentation, any one of them can take over and run the show.”

Just as a bold wardrobe is built on basics, Mellicia relies on Office as a foundation for her business. Whether it’s communicating with colleagues; organizing, sorting and analyzing retailer data; or presenting fashion concepts in her volunteer work, Office is her go-to technology. “I can’t control what software my contractors or clients use, or their level of comfort with different technologies—so it’s especially important I use tools that are easy for anyone,” she says. “Office offers that and more. It lets me spend my time on work that matters—providing great style options for my clients.”

Premium Outlook.com features now available to Office 365 subscribers

Today, we began rolling out new benefits for Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscribers who use Outlook.com. These premium email features include an ad-free inbox, enhanced protection against malware and phishing, larger mailbox sizes, and premium customer support. In the coming months, we’ll be introducing additional premium Outlook.com features to make personal email and calendar experiences for Office 365 subscribers more powerful, productive, and secure.

An ad-free experience

The Outlook.com interface is now free of ads for Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscribers. This includes banner ads as well as advertisements in the message list—commonly referred to as native ads. Without ads, you’ll have less distractions and faster page load times, so you can be more focused and have a better email experience.

Sophisticated protection against email threats

Email is one of the most popular ways that criminals trick people into giving away their passwords or downloading viruses and ransomware. That’s why all Outlook.com accounts already feature robust spam and virus filtering and support from a global security team that works tirelessly to stop these threats.

For Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscribers, we now offer additional security against the most sophisticated types of threats in two ways:

  • Scanning attachments—Sophisticated techniques detect new types of malware previously not seen, giving you protection against today’s most advanced threats.
  • Checking links—When you click a link in an email, it is checked in real-time to determine if the destination website is likely to download viruses or malware onto your computer. If the site is found to be malicious, a warning screen alerts you not to access the site.

More mailbox storage

In our new Office 365–based infrastructure, a free Outlook.com account now receives 15 GB of email storage space. Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscribers enjoy even larger amounts of storage: 50 GB of space in total. Today, we’re also boosting storage limits to 50 GB for all our loyal Outlook.com users whose mailbox size is 12 GB or larger.

Premium support

If you need help on an Outlook.com account issue, you’ll receive free technical support as an Office 365 subscriber. Whether you call us on the phone or reach out via in-app support, you get our highest levels of care and support.

How to get started

Getting started and using these premium features in Outlook.com is easy.

To learn more about the features and see a list of frequently asked questions, please check out the Premium Outlook.com features for Office 365 subscribers help topic.

We hope you enjoy these new benefits, and we look forward to bringing even more premium value to Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscribers in the months ahead!

Improved calendar sharing

You can now easily share all the events in your calendar with anyone who has an Outlook.com or Office 365 account. You have control over the permissions, so you can allow specific friends to edit or only view the events on your calendar.

To share your calendar, simply go to your Outlook Calendar, click Share at the top and then select the calendar you want to share. Next, enter the Outlook.com or Office 365 account of the person with whom you want to share, select the permissions and send the invite.

They can view your calendar, overlay it with theirs and toggle it on/off from the left pane. In addition, it will show up in their mobile device.

Outlook.com automatically adds dinner reservations and other events to your calendar

Last year, we announced easier ways for you to stay on top of your travel and package deliveries and to easily follow your favorite sports teams.

Now, Outlook.com recognizes email confirmations for dinner reservations, concerts or other events and automatically adds them to your calendar, so you won’t forget. The confirmation email displays the details at the top, so you don’t have scroll down to find it. On your calendar, you can click the event to show the details.

Outlook detects dinner confirmations and automatically adds them to your calendar.

We’ve also made it easier for you to share your flights or other events with others. Simply open the event on your calendar and select Share via email. Add recipients, a personal note and hit send—everyone will get an easy-to-read email with your event details.

Interesting calendars adds more sports and teams

If you live in an English-speaking country, you can already stay on top of the events that matter to you, from sporting events to TV shows, with Interesting calendars.

We are now rolling out Interesting calendars to other regions. If you live in China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain or Brazil, you will see the Interesting calendar feature with the most popular sporting events and teams in your country. You can browse for your favorite teams and sports—from fútbol to motocross—and add them to your calendar, so you don’t miss a game. With this rollout, we’ve added more sporting events and teams, curated based on your language in your region and time zone settings.

With Interesting calendars, you can add your favorite teams and sporting events to your calendar.

Cortana can schedule your remote meetings

Last year, we announced the private preview of Calendar.help—a service that allows Cortana to handle meeting scheduling for you through email and automatically add an event to your calendar with the details of the appointment.

We’ve made improvements to the service and need Outlook.com users to try it! You can join the Calendar.help Preview and let Cortana help you schedule your meetings.

FedEx conveys on current working environment vision with distributed computing

Key innovation is a piece of FedEx’s legacy and its key to our proceeded with development later on. In 1978, our organizer and CEO Fred Smith stated, “The data about the bundle is as imperative as the bundle itself.” This set up a culture where innovation works as the focal sensory system behind each and every business procedure at the organization. It’s behind each one of the 13 million shipments that we procedure every day. It underpins our more than 400,000 colleagues working in 220 nations and domains as they interface 99 percent of the worldwide GDP through our transportation, internet business, and business administrations.

This legacy of custom-fabricated, imaginative, end-to-end frameworks of record and engagement—including our innovation of present day bundle following—empowered the business to grow internationally while keeping up our attention on process quality control. In any case, as FedEx entered the cutting edge registering time with a wake of heritage advances, we needed to re-assess the key IT that we have to push ahead in a web empowered world. In 2009, we started a modernization travel that we called Project Renewal. It’s our progressing vision for distributed computing where we are institutionalizing on the present web conventions—the versatile X86 datacenter stage and the “take advantage of” universe of programming as an administration.

Whether related to the logistics business or not, there’s a massive amount of disruptive activity in today’s e-commerce world, with venture capital pouring into both first-mile and last-mile solutions. So, we need to refactor our systems to stay competitive. On the infrastructure side, we have a hybrid compute environment where we burst containerized transaction traffic between our on-premises implementations and the public cloud. With Microsoft, we found a vendor that’s compatible with our approach to multi-cloud and platform services and the protection of our data through intelligent security services. For our same-day service for retailers, we built an API-first, cloud-native application using Microsoft Azure. This competitive, last-mile solution extended our business—with fewer IT resources required.

And when we talk about our renewal journey and software, we’re moving from a legacy of deep vertical applications toward a world where we can tap into and integrate software services to meet our needs and stay connected with customers. This is the essence of “everything as a service,” which dismantles the complexity of constant upgrade cycles, versioning, and patching. Now, instead of installing software across the many thousands of places where we operate, we are taking a different approach. We chose Microsoft 365 so our more than 400,000 team members can take advantage of the cloud in ways that make us more collaborative and creative, driving a new era of innovation.

The diversity of cloud-based business solutions that we can deploy to meet our associates’ needs, no matter where they work, is a huge advantage for FedEx. Now, frontline workers such as our mechanics can take their tablets and access the engineering diagrams they need while they’re seven stories up on a scaffolding, servicing the tail engine on one of our aircraft. We see it as key to our future to provide this modern “tap-into” world, where everything is accessible and where we operate as collaborative virtual teams in highly secure digital environments.

And at FedEx, we’ve always promoted a culture of empowerment because we believe it’s the wellspring of innovation. We got where we are through our heritage of technology innovation, but we cannot afford to rest on that reputation. Since 2009, we’ve been working diligently to stay relevant, re-engineering our legacy software for the cloud so we can engage with next-generation fulfillment systems. Whether you are shipping apparel, or flowers, or car parts from the other side of the world, FedEx will continue to innovate in a cloud-based computing paradigm, so we can make good on our promise to move everything to everywhere—just as we’ve always done.
