|Office 365 includes a web interface for email, calendaring, contacts and tasks that is very similar to other web-based email platforms. What sets Office 365 apart are the additional features that allow users to store documents in the cloud, access files on the go, share documents with other users and collaborate in real time. Office 365 also provides a workspace for groups of users to communicate with each other, manage a group calendar, store group files, and share notes in a group notebook. Watch our Information Webinar for a general understanding of Office 365.|
