Microsoft Word for Office 365 enables users to do far more than simple word processing. Word includes advanced image manipulation tools, collaboration features, cross-referencing and linking tools, entry forms and data collection, security features, and tools to automate document production.
Being able to manipulate graphics and efficiently create, manage, revise, and distribute long documents and forms can help a user’s organization create important and interesting documents. Implementing time-saving features that enable users to work well in a collaborative mode that will benefit both the user and the user’s organization.

Mastering these skills and techniques will make users a valued employee in their organization.
