Office 365 is a Microsoft application which deals with sharing of emails, notes, and documents in a group by using Office online, OneNote, Word, and Excel.
Integration of Office 365 with Dynamics 365 became much easier due to the release of latest version of Dynamics 365 Online. Through this integration work life has become much easier because of features to track appointments, contracts, emails etc. as well as to connect to Outlook, Word, Excel and OneNote. The major advantage of the integration is increased customer relationship value and productivity.
By integrating with Outlook, it’s easy to track emails, leads, meetings and customer appointments. It’s also easy to create dynamics records from outlook.
Word and Excel
Account information such as account name, sales documents etc. can be easily imported and analyzed from Dynamics 365.
Notes can be edited and every piece of information can be saved using OneNote along with Dynamics 365. Customer notes can also be reviewed by OneNote.
SharePoint is a document management tool for maintaining storage space. With this integration, accounts and documents automatically get imported to Dynamics 365.
As a whole we can say that there are various advantages in integrating Office 365 with Dynamics 365 like document management, to start a conversation in a group, increase productivity and to easily predict monthly cost.
Microsoft is releasing Office 2019 later next year which includes applications like MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and servers like Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint.
