Teamplace now enables teams to work together on Office 365 documents on its online storage platform.

Thursday, May 2, 2019 — Teamplace, the 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.

Those who enjoy working with Microsoft Office 365 can now also easily do so in Teamplace. In its latest version, Teamplace has seamlessly integrated Office 365 into its collaboration platform. 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 simply 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 clearly indicates the area of the document that is currently being edited.

As usual, 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 familiar 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.

“At Teamplace, we want to fully support teams collaborating in the best possible way, also by giving them access to the tools they like to work with,” says Benjamin Schüler, CTO at Cortado Mobile Solutions. “Since Microsoft Office 365 contains the most popular office applications, we wanted to take this into account and make it easier for our Office 365 users to work together in Teamplace.”

In particular, our users from educational institutions, who work a lot with different types of documents, often use Office 365 apps, especially as they can use Office 365 free of charge.
