Additionally, Word allows you to invite colleagues to edit and comment on documents in real time.

2. Excel. This is more than just a program that lets you create spreadsheets. Excel has the intelligence to recognize patterns and organize your data. It also gives you the option to predict trends, share your workbooks with others to allow for collaboration, and put together charts and graphs to present information in different ways.

3. PowerPoint. This app gives you the ability to create standout presentations with intelligent technology and visual formats including animation, cinematic motion, 3D models and more. The program also lets multiple users work on one presentation simultaneously, and you can easily share your work with others by saving it to the cloud.

4. OneNote. With this digital notebook app, you can write or sketch out ideas, make lists, and edit notes together with other users. Additionally, you can send documents, websites, Outlook messages, and other forms of content to OneNote with apps like Clipper, Microsoft Edge, Office Lens, Share Charm, and more.
