  • Course types: In company
  • Duration: 1 day


Are you curious about the new Office 2016 features?

With Office 2016, Microsoft goes further down the path of 'working together'. Working together on documents in Word and sharing notes via OneNote is even easier – and that not only from your computer or laptop but also via tablets and smartphones.

A lot of work has been done on communication as well, with an improved message overview and new mail options in Outlook.

PowerPoint in turn provides additional features to give your presentations an extra touch, as regards both functions and graphics.

Finally, efficiency in the implementation of your daily tasks becomes more important than ever - witness, among other things, a lot of new functionalities in Excel.

The following software programs will be discussed: Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote.


After this Office 2016 course, you will have a general overview of all the new features which this version includes (in comparison with version 2010).
