Miscellaneous Office 365 Apps and Features

Office 365 gives users access to many helpful applications beyond the standard Office suite, and Microsoft is adding more all the time. 

Your Office 365 user profile may not contain all of the miscellaneous applications available in Office 365. If there is an application you would like access to, please contact the IT Service Desk. A work order will be created, and you will be contacted about your request. Access may not be approved for all applications because of technical or other considerations.

Training resources from Microsoft for these miscellaneous applications can be easily accessed by clicking the Explore all your apps link under the application tiles in the Office 365 home page. 

explore apps

Clicking Explore all your apps opens a page where, by scrolling down a bit, you'll find an All of your apps section. Many of the apps have a learn more link to the right that takes you to Microsoft training resources for that app. 

learnmore

Training resources for these miscellaneous apps can also be found at support.office.com as well as Lynda.com Because new apps are being developed and released frequently, the availability of training resources will vary.
