Legal Techy Tuesday Series: Office 365 for Lawyers Virtual Demo


On 25 February 2020, Office 365 and SharePoint guru Hayden Sinclair from The SharePoint Agency and Gene Turner from LawHawk discussed, particularly as it relates to the legal industry,  some of the key functionality of Office 365 tech.

Areas they focused on included:
  • How to collaborate online in Word, Excel and PowerPoint and see each other’s work in real time
  • How to use Office 365 Planner as a project management tool to create plans, organise and assign tasks, share files, set due dates and provide status updates
  • How to use SharePoint as your document management and collaboration tool
  • How to chat with co-workers in Office apps
  • How to use Microsoft “PowerApps”, “Power Automate” and “Power BI” for things like employee on-boarding
  • How to create self-serve NDAs, embed it into your legal team SharePoint page, and let the business get on with things while still keeping an eye on them
  • How to id and access the wide range of out of the box integrations available with Office 365, including AI through Azure Cognitive Services (the tech development tool for those who are not tech gurus).
