Pros:"My experience have been the best with office 365. I have been using it for more then 2 years and once i had to shift to some other software which is really did not like.""We use SharePoint to store all our documents, share work and most importantly communicate about our work progress. Everyone has access to everyone's files which is amazing for collaboration.""My overall experience is good I would recommend this program to everyone. I have had a positive experience with this program.""In our company we use Office 365 mostly as an E-mail and calendar service because it is great and easy to manage any kind of meeting. It is a great addition to your office."
Cons:"But then again, Teams can get confusing. Uploading a file can be easy, but then again file structure can be complicated and can frustrate users (it frustrated me).""I have to use it because of client demands. Contact throught this application is awful, group video conversations are bad - you couldn't change dimension of videos.""It's so annoying, when having to save as everything, rather than being able to save directly to my Google drive. It just looks desperate and needy, a ploy, a very childish move from Microsoft.""When that happens multiple weeks in a row and no solution can be found, it's very frustrating. Also, the limitations for 365 on Macs can be frustrating."


“A must have for any office”



Overall:
Overall, this is excellent software that's well worth the annual fee that Microsoft charges. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an Office suite of software, whether a small office or larger organization.
Pros:
Office 365 is packed with great software at a great annual price. It's simple to use, but also very powerful. I primarily use Word and PowerPoint for my job and I find it quick, easy and effective. The new feature where PowerPoint makes suggestions to improve your slide is really nice and often spurs ideas in me. Outlook is a powerful email, contact and calendar that you can use across multiple platforms and share with co-workers and family. One more than one occasion it has helped me remember important dates and appointments as well as keeping on track regarding my work responsibilities. I don't use excel, but people I know who do speak highly of it and how flexible and powerful it is.
Cons:
There is very little about Office 365 I don't like. Outlook could use an aesthetic overhaul in my opinion, but that's a pretty minor gripe for software as powerful as this.
Alternatives Considered: 
WordPerfect Office
Reasons for Choosing Microsoft 365: 
Office 365 is superior in every way and well worth the money.


“Great software suite with a clean modern look, a bit limited in the purchasing aspect”



Overall:
Using Office 365 is really smooth and I enjoy the minimalistic look which allows you to focus on the content not on all the tiny icons in the menus. I've been a fan of OpenOffice previously and currently I'm also using Google Docs but nothing beats Microsoft when it comes to a full suite of applications for office work.
Pros:
Office 365 has a great modern look that spans across all their software and apps. The usual subscriptions offer the whole suite of programs to get most of your work done within it: Word for writing, Excell for calculations, spreadsheets, and charts, Power Point for presentations, Outlook for email, OneNote for fast notes, Access for databases, etc. The installation is done very easy and the software almost no configuring apart from the user logging in.
Cons:
While some of the programs available in the suite are great for the majority of uses, some are not, such as Sharepoint which is for your company's intranet, Access for databases which is way slower than even the free alternatives.This is a paid software so obviously any free alternatives could work but not as smoothly.A problem I've ran into using Word was that the document needed a lot of modifications in order to be uploaded as an ebook and published on Amazon.Unfortunately I would really like to buy only a few of the programs I need. They have a way for businesses and individuals to purchase some but it's only for Word, Excell, and PowerPoint whereas I require Outlook as well, too bad.
Alternatives Considered: 
Apache OpenOffice and Google Docs
Reasons for Choosing Microsoft 365: 
Google Docs was way too limited for my client's requirements, and OpenOffice too unstable.
Switched From: 
Apache OpenOffice
Reasons for Switching to Microsoft 365: 
Apache OpenOffice froze often, looked like some program I'd use in Windows 95 and overall was pretty bad.


“Good Feature Set but Still a Ways to Go”



Overall:
I believe that most companies signing up with Microsoft for email get an attractive deal for Office 365 as an included package. That makes the offering worthwhile. The office tools online are getting better but still have a ways to go. Online access and collaboration is worth the extra cost for Office 365 but just don't expect to have it transform your life completely.
Pros:
The cloud availability and collaboration capabilities are definitely the best features of Office 365. It's nice to be able to access email, files and my tools from any device anywhere. That gives me freedom to not have my laptop with me in every situation. I love the ability to share and collaborate on documents with teammates and have a central location for us to all share files and ideas.
Cons:
The tools are just not robust enough yet and in the case of SharePoint and Teams, they are downright clunky. We have all been spoiled over the years with the excellent products Microsoft has developed for their Office platform. The many generations of these products have given us business tools that we legitimately could not do without. Power Point is very good, Word is excellent, and Excel cannot be be beaten. However, their cloud counterparts still fall noticeably short of the client offerings. Yes, you can choose to edit your online doc in the client version but you actually must to access some of your favorite functionality. That is irritating and you find yourself just defaulting to the client if you feel like you have even marginally heavy lifting to do. SharePoint and Teams, in my opinion, are great ideas that don't yet have a positive user experience to make them must-have tools.


“Dependable, easy, but lacking.”



Overall:
Difficult to set up as merging the user accounts with old inbox programs takes time and patience, but does a good enough job that most users don't miss the former clients.
Pros:
This software competes with the best email, workflow, and productivity clients, but links all of the above under a single uder account that can be useful or exhausting based on the individual.
Cons:
The email interface is aesthetically customizable, but limits the actual amount of scripting and scultping that can be done on incoming messages and auto replies.
Alternatives Considered: 
G Suite
Reasons for Choosing Microsoft 365: 
Capabilities for average users were increased compared to G suite.
Switched From: 
Thunderbird Outlook Converter
Reasons for Switching to Microsoft 365: 
Thunderbird had unstable updates and could not offer enterprise-scale support.
