Microsoft made massive changes in Office 2016 for Windows but has
hidden most of the changes beneath a reassuringly familiar-looking
surface. With the new version, the world’s most-powerful and widely
used office application suite leaves its online and desktop-based
competition even further in the dust, especially in its convenient
and deeply integrated collaboration features.
Operating System Supported
What is Office 2016?
Microsoft’s latest update to its office productivity software is
not on the surface a radical overall, with most of its core apps
including few fundamental changes. Instead, much like Windows 10,
the focus is on refining the experience, sharing documents and
tying together PCs, tablet and phones for a more cohesive
The most prominent feature overall is a push towards document
sharing and collaborative working, with Word finally getting
real-time collaboration. There are also a number of more
significant changes to Excel and Outlook plus a couple of new tools
– Sway and Delve.
Office 2016 – Collaboration is the name of the game
The biggest emphasis of Office 2016 is on sharing, both with the
new sharing button and via inbuilt collaboration tools.
Collaborative working has been available through Office for a while
but only through a basic whole-document save and share system. With
2016, though, Microsoft is moving towards real-time collaboration
where multiple users can edit a document at the same time, just
like in Google Docs.
For now, though, the job is far from complete. Proper real-time
collaboration is only available in Word so far, with Excel and
PowerPoint – the two other programs that would benefit most from
collaboration – yet to get the feature. Essentially it works just
like in Google Apps, with users able to see who’s in the document
and what they’re working on. Users are also able to manage who can
edit what and you can do things like lock a paragraph while you’re
It’s a great feature that’s largely dealt with well. However, by
the very nature of Office, you can’t guarantee that every Office
user that might want to access the document has the same version of
Office – for instance, if you’re collaborating between different
companies or with freelance workers. As such collaborative working
can be disjointed and variable.
In contrast, if you want to create a collaborative document in
Google Docs you know that everyone that accesses it will be able to
work on it in exactly the same way.
That said, Microsoft has thought of a way round this. If you send a
link to your document to someone that doesn’t have Office 2016 it
will open in the Web version of Office and allow them to
collaborate through that interface. The web interface isn’t as
powerful but is consistent and is likely to suffice for the sort of
editing work required when real-time collaborating.
Ways to contact who you’re collaborating with are also integrated
into the main suite’s sharing feature, making it easy to quickly
fire up a Skype conversation to discuss what you’re doing.
The overall result is it is much easier to work with others in
Office 2016. However, until Excel and PowerPoint get the same level
of collaborative working, other office tools will likely continue
to be the defacto way for multiple people not inside a single
office structure to work together on words, data and presentations.
