When buying a course or looking for tips, it’s easier for the provider if you know which version of Microsoft Office you’re using. This guide will show you how to identify this on either Windows or Mac.

 

When using Windows

 

  1. Open any of your Office applications (Word or Excel) and create a new document.
  2. Choose File in the top left corner, and then select either Account or Help from the list on the left.
  3. Under Product Information, you’ll see your Office product name and, in some cases, the full version number.
  4. If the full version number doesn’t appear here, choose About Excel. A dialog box opens, showing the full version number and bit version (32- or 64-bit) at the top.

Office 365 Tip: Creating Sites

Office 365 Sites are a good way of creating social pages for your business and creating spaces where various departments can share, interact and store information that only they can access. So here is how to create one.

 

 

To create a Site, Log on to your Office 365 account and if you are an administrator, find the Admin Tab.

Under Admin, Click on SharePoint and under site collection a new Ribbon will appear.

Click on New then Private Site Collection as per picture below and a pop up Site Wizard window will appear, fill out all the spaces. You will need to give your site a unique name. I would consider naming by Department or Function of the site to make it easy to find.

Add a person as a Administrator to help control what happens on the site and allow for a person to be responsible for adding documents, other employees….etc to the site.

Once you have created your Site, it will look something similar to this:

Sites can be very useful especially if certain individuals are constantly moving or traveling, or want to access certain documents and contact other individuals without the need to access files remotely. Like much of Office 365, Sites can also be accessed via a tablet, smart phone or ay hand held device with Internet connectivity.
