5 Microsoft 365 Apps You May Be Missing Out On

Microsoft Office 365 is at the helm of countless modern businesses. From easy-access spreadsheets to calendars and presentations or your typical Word document, Microsoft 365 is the centerpiece of the daily operations of many organizations.

However, many businesses have access to more apps than you realize, leaving resources and tools untapped and unutilized. Here, we cover five Microsoft 365 apps your company may be missing, which can save money for your business and increase productivity.

1. Yammer

Yammer is a communication platform that connects your entire organization, similar to Slack and Chatter. Some of its best features include Yammer’s home feed that helps employees stay up-to-date on conversations across teams, making and joining groups, creating virtual events for people to join remotely (those of which can be recorded to watch later), and launching polls for immediate employee feedback. 

Conversations and files are safely saved in Yammer and can be accessed anytime, and the best part? Yammer connects everybody from leaders to employees to contractors and easily integrates with other Microsoft 365 apps such as Teams, Sharepoint, or Outlook.

2. Visio

Visio is a tool that allows users to create diagrams and informational graphics alongside hundreds of templates for flowcharts, timelines, floor plans, and Venn diagrams. Other features include professional styles, themes, and fun effects to grab your audience’s attention. 

Or instead, it can serve as a great brainstorming session tool that integrates with Excel, Access, and Sharepoint. With Visio, your thoughts, ideas, and data are organized in a comprehensive, coherent, and professional way.

3. Bookings

Does your organization struggle with tracking all of your meetings? Bookings may be the answer, as an application that integrates with other Microsoft 365 apps like Teams to track your organization’s meetings. You can create and share specific calendars, make different appointment types for various teams, as well as manage and organize virtual and in-person meetings all in one place.

4. Power Automate

Power Automate is a favorite among many companies for its ability to increase productivity and cut down on menial tasks through the power of automation. This tool allows businesses to program repetitive tasks, enhances workflows with the help of AI, and comes with countless templates already set up. 

Some of these tasks include sending a customized email when a new file is added to a Sharepoint library, automatically tracking form responses from Microsoft Forms, and notifying users via Microsoft Teams or email when you receive a message from your boss.

5. Sway
