Whether in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Microsoft PowerPoint, again and again, teams or work groups have to create, edit and comment on documents. It is important that all team members always know which version of the document is the correct, current one.

For several years already, Teamplace has been offering the ideal platform for the educational field for saving, editing and sharing documents. Including a versioning of the files and a stream that keeps track of the latest activities of the team members.

Now our cloud storage for teams has reached another important milestone: the integration of Microsoft Office 365. This means documents can be edited directly in Teamplace with Office 365.

What if you don’t have Office 365 and are a teacher or student? If this is the case, you can request a free Office 365 license from Microsoft.

On the site “Get Office 365 free for your entire school“, you can verify the authorization for your entire educational institution.

Teachers and students can also request Office 365 for Education for free, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft Teams and additional tools for the classroom here.

And this is an example of what it would look like when teaching staff work together in Teamplace on documents for science class. A small flag in the document shows where a team member is working or has worked, and comments are shown on the right.

It’s best to try it right away! Request your free Office 365 Education license and then create a free Teamplace account. Teamwork doesn’t get any easier or more convenient than this!

Already today we have many educational institutions among our satisfied users. For them, in addition to the collaboration functions, it is also important that the Teamplace servers are in Germany. They are ISO 27001 certified and comply with German data protection regulations.

And what if you can´t gain a free Office license or don´t want to? That too is no obstacle: Teamplace also has an online editing function independent of Office 365. With this function, you can edit all common documents directly in your online storage. So, whether with or without Office 365, Teamplace provides ideal conditions for organizing and editing documents in a team.
