ATOI365D #Office365Challenge We’re living in the era of Failure to Filter. Too much information, whether through search or discovery, comes our way every minute.

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.
