Microsoft office suite is the collective title for Microsoft set of applications used in the home and business environment. Office 16 update is not a major overhaul; most of its core apps are still in place. The main focus of office 16 is on refining the user experience, file sharing, and connecting multiple devices for a more cohesive experience. 

Despite being a desktop suite, Microsoft Office enables users to extend their work to the cloud. Hence, the cloud provides storage, accessibility, protection against data loss, data security, and control. With the office online, users can view, update, and share important work files and also work collaboratively in real-time.

How Can Microsoft Office 16 Improve Productivity?

Some of the ways Office 16 can help the user be productive is through real-time co-authoring, which means you'll be able to see what other collaborators are doing and vice versa. It won't matter where you see or what device you're using — simplified document sharing by clicking the share button in the top right corner of the application. Clutter for Outlook is a new category added to your inbox toolbox to help users manage their emails efficiently, assigning priority to the clutter. 

It's well-known that this tool is a desktop or pc application which can be found either in the windows store for windows users, office official website, or third-party websites. If you have any other version of the Microsoft Office suite, you need to remove it before installing Office 2016. This will help in avoiding multiple conflicts. After downloading the installer, the installation wizard will guide you through the steps. When the installation is complete go programs file to see the complete office suite. 

The Microsoft suite of programs contains Microsoft Word, a word processing tool to create documents; Microsoft Excel spreadsheet application to store, organize and manipulate data; Microsoft PowerPoint used for creating interactive presentations; Microsoft outlook, used to manage email and calendar, to-do lists and contacts, Microsoft Access a database management tool, Microsoft OneNote a note-taking application to organize data you collect, Microsoft Publisher, a desktop publishing application to create extensive publication. Microsoft OneDrive a cloud-based service to store data online. Microsoft Office 16 supports language localization. 

Some of the drawbacks associated with Microsoft Office 16 will include sharing options restricted to OneDrive, no major update for an average user, real-time collaboration still behind online tools. It will be great if these concerns are taken into consideration for even higher productivity.
