Pros

Very positive experience - any successful business would find significant efficiencies and opportunities by moving to 365.
I love how secure the platform is, the software is easy to navigate. I love the fact that it is accessable worldwide.
We utilize all that the product has to offer on a daily basis and are quite happy with the product. It helps us manage our business better and provides the tools necessary to communicate effectively.

Pros

I like that I can easily create, save and share documents using this app. Its also available for Android which is a great benefit.
The best bang for the buck easy to use and easier to set up user friendliness at its absolute finest.
The software is great for adaptation in many different facilities and functions across many platforms. It is easy to use and great for and type of documentation.

Cons

This is the sort of thing the hard drive resident application never struggled with. Conditional formatting layered up is the sort of thing that causes problems.
Sometimes i get logged out and have trouble logging back in. This is very rare but can be confusing and upsetting as everything is on there.
I hate, hate, hate, hate the fact that you cannot install each app on its own. It is pointless to force people who only need Excel or Word to install EVERYTHING.

Cons

I hate that I can’t input texts or photoshop picturess and I hate how it’s only for Windows not apple.
Interface can be confusing and hard to figure out where to go.
I dislike that Microsoft Word formatting sometimes gets messy and difficult.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) online everywhere in every platform.

Pros

Much better set of tools and experience compared to Google Drive. It is almost all the same you are used to deal with during your entire life with Microsoft Office but It is completely online, you get OneDrive cloud storage, exchange server for your mails, minutes of Skype call and etc.

Cons

It is expenseive, even more if you compare to Google Suite, for smaller companies It is not worth it, you can do almost everything but with not so good experience with Google Suite. For mail Google is also much better and have the advantage of having google login everywhere.

Microsoft is my Go-To

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, my experience with Microsoft Word has been a positive one.

Pros

I love using Microsoft. Word is my main program that I use for writing. It has a lot of great options for fonts and the layouts are so simple to use. As a writer, it's important to have a program that you can rely on and that's definitely apparent in any Microsoft application.

Cons

Sometimes I don't have any idea what I've done if I mess something up with the formatting and it takes me a while to figure out how to fix it. I wish there was some kind of fail-safe to undo that.

Needed for Office Work

Reviewed 4 years ago

I use it on a daily basis and would not be successful without it. I use Excel daily to track data, Word to take notes and PowerPoint to create presentations for the team. I highly recommend!

Pros

If you are familiar with one of the programs associated with Office365 you can easily navigate all of the programs. Being an Assistant, Office 365 has helped me tremendously keep notes/data organized.

Cons

I vary between using Pages and Microsoft Word. I way prefer Microsoft Word. However, Pages has the ability to "Duplicate" a document and I haven't figured out how to do that on Word yet.

Pros

It is easy to download. It comes with most Microsoft applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint. I use mostly word documents to create cover letters for journals and for job applications etc.

Cons

When you make a document file using another computer, the format will change if you try to open the same document using another computer. It is not suitable in some cases like when writing a thesis. I was forced to learn latex.

Subscription Model is Frustrating

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, 365 is great, but I couldn't justify paying for it every month when there are free options out there. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs more than just word processing. If you use Exel, Access or Powerpoint, it's definitely worthwhile. It just wasn't for me anymore.

Pros

I purchased a 365 subscription for access to Microsoft Word, which I absolutely love. Word is hands-down my favorite word processing program.

Cons

I'm a long-time MS Office user, but I've recently (and reluctantly) switched to Google products because they provide a very similar value without the cost. I know I can access MS Word online without the subscription, but it's not the same for me.

I usually just use Microsoft 365 for Word and Excel for college assignments.

Pros

If you're a college student, you're able to get Microsoft Office for free! I love using this software because a lot of workplaces use these tools as well. It's easy to learn how to use especially if you have experience with google products.

I use Microsoft Office 365 to get access to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. I have the latest versions of each, and it says that when new versions come out, I will get it automatically and free of charge. This is better than the situation I have seen sometimes where some people have an older version, and they can't share files with each other.

Pros

I like that Office 365 gives me all the Microsoft Office software I'm used to using at work, like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint.

Cons

I think it would be neat that if you use at work, you also can use it at home, like a job benefit.

Real-time collaboration features in Office 365 are enough to justify the subscription

Reviewed 5 years ago

Since upgrading to Office 365, along with getting the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint, we also get the ability to have real-time co-authoring through the cloud. This lets us work on the same documents and see changes appear instantly. This has become a really productive way to work, especially when we are in different offices, or travelling between jobs.

Pros

I value the real-time co-authoring available in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint that are available with Office 365.

Cons

There is nothing that I do not like about Office 365. I have nothing to say that is negative about it.

It was the Money

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall experience is good. Downfall is the price when everything else is so easily accessible.

Pros

I really enjoyed using Microsoft word as a full product with Office 365. I used it for a previous job and loved it.

Cons

I used it at a job and loved it. Once I went to get it on my own and had to pay for it I found other options. I grew up paying and using office. Now their are other options for what it offers for less money.

Microsoft Word Review

Reviewed 2 months ago

Microsoft has been a pleasure to work with; I use it every day for work. It facilitates teamwork and aids in my work as well. The incorporation of Microsoft 365's Word, Excel, and Outlook products improves my productivity.

Pros

The latest iterations of Microsoft Word are very remarkable. They have a clean, light feel to them. Numerous options and functionalities are well-organized and readily available. When you need assistance, you can peruse a wide range of resources.

Cons

The Microsoft support system is not one of my favorites. The agents often tell you the same stuff when you chat with them, sometimes things that are utterly irrelevant, and it is far easier to look for support online on your own.

Il più conosciuto Word Processor

Reviewed 2 years ago

Ci sono software gratuiti come Open Office che assolvono praticamente agli stessi compiti per quanto riguarda l'ufficio. C'è da dire però che con Microsoft 365 è davvero un'altra storia come esperienza d'uso. Piacevole e molto ben curata.

Pros

Che dire, il prodotto è migliorato moltissimo con Microsoft 365. È indubbiamente il migliore editor (a pagamento) per l'ufficio. Collaborazione online, OneDrive con spazio acquistabile.

Cons

Non ho particolari difetti da segnalare.

Better solutions avaliable

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I think Microsoft Word provides the most vanilla environment for writing documents. It gives you a nice starting configuration that allows you to quickly get started with your word document and enough options to customize it.

Cons

The worst part of Microsoft Word is the forced integration with OneDrive/Office 365, the inability to purchase a permanent license, and the slow start up time.

The good old standard in document processing

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is a staple application that almost everyone can use without any training.

Pros

So much has changed in the past 20 years in the field of technology but one thing remains the same. The consistency and importance of Microsoft Word 365. The application continues to be a staple in the office place and together with the rest of the 365 suite is a important tool.

Cons

I am just not a fan of the ribbon. I like the live auto preview of changes but I would rather have the screen space back instead of the fancy icons.

Blindly secure every artefact with editable MS Word

Reviewed 2 years ago

Microsoft word 365 has a special scrolling trick with suggestive options. I can undo this entire history checking everything I can go wrong. It also improves making every word count with auto-corrections in action.

Pros

Every editable style in all its fancy-schmaltzy loved to be listed under multiple paragraphs that can change this well customized protected idea through Word 365. It balances the art of viewing your documents emailed with avuncular suggestions. I have used MS Word making my unimaginable documents for perfect editing. It simply integrates best technology anywhere in best ways ever made possible.

Cons

I find quitting Word will never be possible. My daily online research carried away for assumptions can be well organized if there is a speech recognition textured independently from beginning to end. I expect I never will edit more than formatting words for true representations.

Outdated?

Reviewed 2 years ago

For years, I used it a lot. The office 365 is a little better because it’s online vs the original Word software. For some of the work I was doing, I preferred Microsoft Publisher over Word.

Pros

I mainly use a competitor program, but I do really like the ease of insert text boxes in Word

Cons

I was used the software that was not web based, so I had to save to my hard drive and the. Upload to my cloud based storage.

Un logiciel de traitement de texte incontournable pour la bureautique

Reviewed 6 months ago

Étant utilisateur depuis plusieurs années, j'ai jonglé entre la version 2007 et celle de Microsoft Office 365. Je suis satisfait par la suite bureautique qui permet d'élaborer des documents de différents formats. Beaucoup d'options sont présentes. Je n'utilise pas toutes les fonctionnalités. Petit plus dans la version Office 365, c'est automatiquement mis à jour. Je suis globalement satisfait par Word.

Pros

La possibilité de faire du traitement de texte avec beaucoup de fonctionnalités : - les polices, les marges, la possibilité de créer des tableaux, d'insérer des images, l'intégration avec les autres outils du pack bureautique...

Cons

Quelques bugs de temps en temps. Des mises à jour qui modifient l'interface. Il est parfois difficile de retrouver ses repères d'une version à l'autre.

The Original and Arguably, Still The Best

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Everyone Knows Microsoft Word as the original powerhouse in Word Processing. It is easily accessible and has a host of features that make it the premier choice in Word Processing. As part of the Office 365 Suite, it is frequently updated with new features.

Cons

The price can be a bit of a barrier to some as it isn't cheap. However, it is often provided by Universities so this can help many Students.

Microsoft Word - Le meilleur logiciel de traitement de texte

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Word est le logiciel parfait pour le traitement de texte professionnel. On peut y modifier du texte à plusieurs sur le même document, rédiger et traiter la mise en forme de manière fluide et rapide. L'application est parfaitement intégrée dans la suite Microsoft 365.

Cons

La fonctionnalité de prédication de texte pourrait être plus poussée. La correction automatique de texte pourrait être plus performante.L'ergonomie sur l'application smartphone est très limitée. On a du mal à trouver les éléments rapidement, surtout pour mettre en forme le texte.

Best Software in its kind

Reviewed 2 years ago

Rating does the best work here. On the off chance that I ought to rate my abilities with MS Word, on a scale from 0 to 10, I would give myself an 8. Sure, I've been working with the product consistently at school, while getting ready for theological college works and comparable materials. Furthermore, I accept to have a deep understanding of organizing, design, and so on. Yet, I likewise accept that there is an opportunity to get better, in all that we do, and therefore I could never give myself a dream come true regardless of whether I worked 10 hours every day with the product.

Pros

The current product they provide has been very satisfying. The email service has been operating perfectly. Dynamics CRM is the best Microsoft 365 Business is easy to use. Most companies use Microsoft Windows as an operating system, making the use of this solution straightforward. There is a small learning curve, and it is something everyone can adapt to easily. and competes well with the non-CRM products in the market, such as Salesforce.

Cons

The way that they offer a 64-digit rendition yet as a matter, of course, introduces the 32-bit variant and don't recommend introducing 64 cycles. Why offer it by any stretch of the imagination? Does a word processor truly should be 64 digits? 64-bit email client? 64-bit bookkeeping sheets?
