Access and make changes to your documents online without the fear of losing the formatting and your personal touch
How will it feel when a document that you created after hours of toil and deliberation ended up losing its magic? The formatting that you have done has vanished, the images that were a vital cog in the story telling process is blurred, the chart is, luckily, still there, but the numbers are missing! This is something that you don’t even conceive in your worst nightmare. And today you have this important presentation before the Vice President of the company! You may be left wondering why at this crucial juncture, you have fate picked you for such special treatment. Curse whomever you may, but only if you had earlier known what could have gone wrong, it would have been a wonderful day with people clapping in appreciation your genius and ingenuity. But, it was not to be. The ‘document’ spoiled it all.
You are not the only victim of such dreadful incidents. In fact, people who save documents online frequently have similar stories to tell, though the magnitude of heartbreak may differ. This is not the case though if you use Office Web Apps to save your documents. With this innovative application, you not only can access great-looking documents saved online in SkyDrive from almost anywhere but, importantly, can be sure that the formatting will remain intact. This is something that cannot be said about readily-available online software programs. Microsoft Office Web Apps include online versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote.
Moving to another problem that users like you have to constantly endure is collaborating with others on a document. In the normal course, you will e-mail an attachment to your friend who, after modifying it, will again send it back to you. Until the editing process is over, the back and forth carries on. This is a tedious process and you may lose track of what is happening. In Office Web Apps you no longer send e-mail attachments, instead you rely on online storage and accessing of documents. The application enables you to decide who can see and edit the documents, so there is no fear of mishandling. To open the files you are provided with a link. The uniqueness of the app is that you can either use a browser or Microsoft Office to open the file on your PC.
One question that might be crossing your mind at this instant will be, is the app compatible with your version of Microsoft Office. The answer is ‘Yes’. However, it works best with Microsoft Office 2010. To add to the list of positives, the app is absolutely free.
So, what are you waiting for? Just use it and enjoy.
