#Office365Challenge – Templates available in Word – I get asked quite often to help someone design a birthday card or a poster. Only because I’m fairly “PowerPoint-capable”. Now here’s something I didn’t know (as well), Word offers templates for doing exactly that!! Yup – who would have thought?!

Description: Using templates for new Word Documents

When creating a new Word document – the following screen opens, allowing you to either select a blank template – or use one of the predesigned templates.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know.

So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
