Office 2016 Released

Although 2016 is still a few months away Office 2016 is here.

Here is a Quick Start Guide. Microsoft offers training here.

Don't forget as a Faculty member of Butler you are entitled to a copy of Office. We have disks that you can checkout for Windows & Mac. Currently, we do not have Office 2016 for Windows but hope to soon. Feel free to contact our office for more information.

Top 6 reasons to upgrade

1. Built for teamwork

In WordPowerPoint, and Excel, there's easy sharing right from within the app. You can also see who has access to a given file and who is currently working in it.
TIP   There's also real-time typing in Word. As you collaborate with others in a document, see where others are working and view their edits as they happen.

2. New Chart Types in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel
Visualize financial or hierarchical data, and highlight statistical properties of your data with new chart types:TreemapWaterfallParetoHistogramBox and Whisker, and Sunburst.

3. Faster, easier ways to get data into Excel

Excel includes a powerful new set of features called Get & Transform, which provides fast, easy data gathering and shaping capabilities. Get & Transform enables you to connect, combine, and refine data sources to meet your analysis needs.

4. Modern Attachments in Outlook

Attach a document from your recent items and share them from OneDrive or SharePoint with email recipients. Also configure sharing permissions so that all the recipients have access to the attached file without having to leave the app.

5. Smart Lookup in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook

Fact-check or explore terms in your documents with Bing-powered Smart Lookup. Simply highlight terms in your document and use this feature to bring in search results from the web right into your reading or authoring environment.

6. Tell Me in Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Project, Visio, and Access

Simply type what you want to do in the app using your own words, and then Tell Me will guide through the process as well as offer additional resources.
