ATOI365D #Office365Challenge You might have noticed “Tell me what you want to do” in Office 2016, and you think it’s just a new name for Help. You are so wrong! Let’s try it out.

Day:  320 of 365, 45 left
Tools:  Office 365, Word, Office 2016
Description:  Tell me what you want to do
Audience:  All


What does Microsoft say?  It’s the new way to get help in Office 2016. It’s a way to get things done, more quickly. Read more…

I’ll be honest. I didn’t use the Help function much in previous years, cause it sucked big time. However, this new Tell me feature is pretty awesome

How it works:

In Office 2016, you’ll notice the “Tell me what you want to do” text in your ribbon. Click in this space and start typing. The following results will be displayed:

  1. Related functions on your ribbon, you might use to perform that action.
  2. More help features
  3. Smart Lookup


If you’re not sure where things are on the ribbon and you haven’t customized your ribbon or you’re not using the Quick Access Toolbar – this will be a great way to find things FAST!

How neat would it be to have a “Tell me what you Need” search bar on my blog, pity – you’ll have to use normal search 🙁

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. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. 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.
