Teamplace (www.teamplace.net), an online storage platform for teams, has now integrated Microsoft Office 365 into its platform. Users can now open, work on and share documents in Teamplace with Office 365.
By clicking on the Office 365 icon and the user logging in, documents can be edited online with Office 365. The only requirement for use is a valid Office 365 Business subscription or school account.
During editing, the Office 365 document is regularly saved in the Teamplace. When a user is finished working, they close the browser window. Changes made by other team members can be easily tracked via the versioning feature and team members using Office 365 can work on the same document at the same time. A red flag indicates the area of the document that is currently being edited.
Files can be commented upon across versions and the Activity Stream informs all project participants about the latest updates from their team members.
For those not working with Office 365, the editing feature in Teamplace is available as usual, regardless of whether other team members use Office 365. Automatic versioning prevents data chaos and ensures that documents are not accidentally deleted.
