Get started using Office 365, the Microsoft hosted collaboration and productivity suite that allows businesses and teams to email, collaborate on documents, and share calendars. Author David Rivers tours the subscription service, showing how to administer user accounts; share and collaborate with a team site; and manage mail, contacts, and calendars with the Outlook web app. The course also explains how to connect with colleagues using the instant messaging and social media features.
When it comes to collaborating with people here in Office 365, you'll be collaborating with other team members. You'll also be collaborating with anyone on your contacts list. What if you have a number of connections in a social networking site, like Facebook or LinkedIn for example? Well, the nice thing is you can bring those connections into your Outlook Web App so you can collaborate with them as contacts, and I'm going to show you how to that right now. It doesn't matter what you're looking at here onscreen, you'll need to go up to the navigation bar and click People. And this will launch your Outlook Web App.
We've been here before, but over here on the left-hand side you'll notice a link to Connect to social network. We're going to click that. Next, you'll see a list of social networks that you belong to. I have only one here, LinkedIn, and there's a link for me to connect to LinkedIn, and what this is going to do is create contacts out of my connections. Clicking this might prompt me for my username and password, but I'm already logged in to my LinkedIn account. As you can see in the top-right corner I have a Sign Out link. If you're not already logged in, you'll need to enter your username and your password, and then click the OK, I'll Allow It button. This allows access to those contacts until revoked by default. You can change that if you want by clicking the Change lin. You will see a drop down and you can limit the time that you're connected: 30 days, a week, or a single day.
But Until Revoked means you can come back here at any time and just remove the connection. I'm going to click OK, I'll Allow It, and it just takes a moment to connect. Notice that I'm now connected to LinkedIn. Here's where I go to remove that connection at any time; that means going back to Connect to social network and choosing Remove. But I'm going to click Close right now to stay connected and notice now LinkedIn appears under my contacts here on the left-hand side, and I can go there to see that my contacts are being downloaded now.
The list will appear just as the list appears here under contacts, and by selecting any one of those connections I can go over here and email them, schedule meetings with them, and so on. So that's how we get connected to social networking sites like LinkedIn or Faceboo. At any time you can revoke that, as I mentioned, by going back to Connect to social network. You'll see that same list, and if you're already connected, the Remove link will appear. Clicking that will prompt you to confirm you want to end the connection and delete the contacts here in Office 365. Click Yes.
It's now removed. It no longer appears under my contacts, and the dialog box closes up. So if you do have a number of contacts or connections at a social networking site, you can include them here in your contacts by simply connecting to that social network.
