Sharepoint Online

SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service that helps organizations share and collaborate with colleagues, partners, and clients. With SharePoint Online, you can access internal sites, documents, and other information from anywhere—at the office, at home, or from a mobile device.

With your G3 license, when you sign in to Office 365 you will see links to Newsfeed, OneDrive, and Sites in the app launcher navigation. These are your entry points into SharePoint. Organizations use SharePoint to create websites. You can use it as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device. All you need is a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.

The Missing Apps

Office 365 includes a lot of great applications, but two Microsoft applications you may have been using were not included in the Office Productivity Suite: Microsoft Project and Microsoft Visio.

To maintain full compatibility with your other Microsoft applications in Office 365, Microsoft recommends:

  • For MS Project: Project Professional for Office 365*
  • For MS Visio: Visio Professional for Office 365

Just like Office 365, these are subscription-based products licensed per user through the ISD Office 365 tenant.

If you have any questions or you wish to order Project or Visio for Office 365, contact your ISD CRM or the ISD Help Desk.

* There are several versions of Microsoft Project. We want to be sure you get the right one. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions for information on choosing the correct version of MS Project for your needs.
