How does Office Delve boost workgroup productivity?

Microsoft Office Delve accomplishes this by making it easy to identify files that you need to work, even when you can’t locate or describe them.

Microsoft Office Delve, a new information discovery and content management applicationmonitors content and tailors information discovery to each person’s content and work habits. Delve is based on Office Graph technology. This technology uses machine learning to track the links between people, content, and activities across Office 365 applications. The relationship maps that Graph creates pushes use patterns to news feeds personalized for each user.

Delve measures the relevance of each file that workgroup members create, change, and share. The more relevant a content is to your work—and the more closely you work with others to create and share it—the more relevant the file is to you. When you look for files, the most relevant ones appear on the search list.

Simultaneous Editing in Office 365

Simultaneous Editing in Office 365

With simultaneous editing in Office 365 your employees can save time by working together on the same document and can easily bounce ideas off of each other. In the past, employees would have to email the file and keep updating it as they made changes. Now they can make all the changes on the same document avoiding countless emails back and forth. This synthesizes all the work onto the same document, so there is no longer multiple versions of the same document.

For example, your team can work in Web Apps for a collaborative working meeting to get a shared project done. If someone on your team isn't available that teammate can chose to make revisions whenever he's able to. His changes will sync up to the document stored in the cloud when he saves. Even if he is offline, his changes will sync back up to the cloud when he gets back online. What are you waiting for? Start collaborating now!

Simultaneous Editing

All Functionality Requires SharePoint Online as the document management system.

Can you have 15 Copies of Microsoft Office on a single subscription?

Yes, when you purchase one subscription of Microsoft Office 365, you receive the right to install 5,5,5 copies of Office on different devices for that single user. We have highlighted the following points that speak to this licensing fact:

From Microsoft Official Volume Licensing Documentation*:

Italics are ours for clarification or emphasis:

  1. Each user to whom you assign a User SL (Subscription License) may activate the software for local or remote use on up to five concurrent OSEs (Operating System Environments). (5 copies for Windows and / or Mac)
  2. Each user to whom you assign a User SL may also activate Microsoft Office Mobile software to create, edit, or save documents on up to five of their smartphones and five of their tablets

In our words:

Each user of Office subscription, E3, or E4 can run up to 15 copies of Office - up to 5 that are full function 2013 (PC or Mac) AND up to five on mobile phone AND up to five more copies on tablets (currently only iPad Office is available – Android tablet to follow at a time that is unclear). Additionally, any user who has access to the web applications (K1, E1, E3, E4 plans or a-la-carte) could access Office functionality via any modern web browser.
