  1. Office 365 or Open Office?


    Hi Guys

    I am slowly converting from my Chromebook to a new new laptop with W10 on it.
    As I exchange and support someone who is not too PC savvy, I am wondering if I am better sending him files using Open Office or 365 Office.

    On this new laptop, I inherited the 12 month free Office 365 but in the past, I have always installed Apache OO which suited me fine.

    As he wont have Office365 on his pc, am I right in thinking OO would be best to use as he should be able to open ok. If he does not have OO, I will install for him if he needs it.

    Last but not least, as I can manage ok with my OO, am I better uninstalling this 1 yr free Office 365 so they don't clash, plus I can end up with too many file extensions?

    :)

    They are the same, 365 has less money making schemes, but dumps everything on the cloud.
    365 is online, 2013 is 100% offline.
    Also 365 will cost more in the longrun, especially if you dont upgrade for 3 years.

    Cortana & Office 365 Integration

    We are trying to integrate Cortana with our Office 365 subscription, but it never works. Here are the steps we have done:



    • Turned on Cortona in the Office 365 Admin portal
    • We are using Windows 10 1703 – connected Office 365 service to Cortana
    Did the same on windows 10 mobile with no luck, Cortana says its connected to Office 365, but sees no data and we are getting zero errors

    We went rough office 365 support first and tried all fo their suggestions, they kicked us over to Windows support which is currently closed.

    We are on v1703 with all updates in place, it does not work on Windows 10 desktop or mobile

    any ideas? I can give you all steps 365 support had us run through if that will be helpful

    Thank you

    Doug
