Murrieta, CL: Microsoft in its recently made announcement had talked about the release of its new “Centralized Deployment for Office 365 web add-ins” feature.
Making use of the PowerShell scripts or the Office 365 admin center, the latest feature enables the administrators to easily organize the add-ins to a particular user, a group of users or a complete organization based on one’s preference.
The release and preview of the particular service has been marked at the end of the year 2016.
Microsoft has also announced in a post on the company’s Office blog that the users can easily view all the add-ins that are installed on the ribbon of their MS-Office applications like Word, Excel or PowerPoint running on Mac, Windows or Office online, just by simply opening these applications. This will further permit all the organizations (whether small or large) to expand their Office with the help of the enhanced and important services across each and every platform.
To demonstrate the efficiency of the service, the usage case of the “Genetec Inc” (a Canadian supplier of access control and license identification solutions combined in a single platform, called Security Center) is concerned and praised by Microsoft.
“Genetec” makes use of “Qorus” add-ins that helps Office 365 users to search for proper content to add to proposals, pitches, emails and reports as well as to create accurate and efficient business-related documents.
Microsoft explained in a distinct but associated post on its blog that “Genetec’s bid response team” on realizing the requirement for boosting up of its content’s value along with the efficiency, joined hand with the “Qorus” to focus on content in Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft SharePoint Online for Business by creating separate Microsoft platform to make a better content easily available.
The post also includes that, the tasks such as creating new documents, increasing cooperation with subject matter experts, etc. is simplified by the “Qorus” add-ins. It also provides the “Genetec” employees to have great prospect on its usefulness for tracking the usage of the content.
