Users now have more options when it comes to selecting an application for their word processing needs. Both Microsoft and Google are recognised, well established brands in the tech field. So, which should you choose? The answer largely depends on how you would use the applications. In this blog, we’ll be going through some of the key similarities and differences to help you decide which program is right for you!
The Blogs of Advent
Every day during the run up to Christmas, we shared a new festive blog post with a different tip. Take a look back through our Advent posts by browsing this page! You can see the Advent calendar on the Micro Office Advent page!
What is Microsoft Bookings?
Could Microsoft Bookings be helping you save time? Microsoft Bookings is a web-based, “public” calendar that is part of the family of products created by Microsoft Office. In essence, it is a piece of scheduling software. Released in 2017, the system allows customers of small businesses to book in appointments and time with a company. Bookings can be fully integrated with your Microsoft 365 or Office 365 calendar. This helps your customers to instantly identify your availability, taking away the back-
Microsoft Bookings Vs Calendly

Calendly and Microsoft Bookings are two of the most popular calendar apps, so, naturally it can be difficult deciding which is best. In this post, we'll take a look at the key points and benefits that each scheduling system has so you can see which is right for you!
Why I don't want to be a 'woman in business'
For women to be taken seriously, we need to collectively begin working to remove gender bias from our mindsets. Women should absolutely continue to build each other up and be proud of their accomplishments and positions, but we should prioritise pride in skill, not 'skill — despite the social position of women'. Defining as female is not a handicap. We shouldn't need to feel surprised when a woman rises to the top.
Paper Vs Planner
How I use Microsoft Planner to manage my time When I first started my position at D365 Life Without Code, there were a lot of tasks coming my way. So used to my multitude of notepads and pens, I quickly began to realise that I would need a better method of taking notes and keeping track of my work.
Broken Spines and Folded Pages
I was told to keep the pages pristine by using a book mark. To keep the spine unaffected from those little creases that run from base to tip, I should avoid opening my book to its full capacity, or, sit and gently open each leaf from one end of the book until my bored fingers met somewhere in the middle.
Her eyes are unfocused as she stirs her cup of tea. The hand not holding onto the small, silver teaspoon clutches the pendant at her throat like a lifeline — a tether to the reality she knows. The chain is golden and sturdy, with small fastenings that interlink to form a sweeping arc around her throat with an emerald at the front. Her birthstone. I bought it for her two years ago. My May Day love. A moment passes and another goes by. A minute more and she's still frozen in the simple motion. T
One step, one glance, one word. That's all it took for me to fall. The cracks reverberate beneath my feet, spreading outwards and reaching for him before I can stop them. Like a deadly kaleidoscope, they surround me, bigger cracks interweaving with the smaller that branch from them. Small buds of water occasionally spill from the gaps that puddle where I step and I find myself dodging more and more as I go.
A Dynamic Approach to Sales
We believe that personal organisation is a key component to ensuring that tasks are being carried out effectively. Having the ability to easily find information can be just as important as initially recording the data! This is why we like to use Dynamics to aid our administrative work and approach to sales! At D365 Life Without Code, we don’t just walk the walk but we also talk the talk, using our systems on a daily basis!
From Stables to Software
For thirty years before joining the D365 ranks, our Office Administrator Clare worked not with computers, but with animals. Before starting her current role, Clare hadn’t used much technology at all. Following the pandemic, Clare began to help Claire (with an I) with the admin side of the growing business. Though she was nervous at first, Clare learnt that there was an easy method to how things can be completed.
Evolution of Technology
They say that millennials and generations younger seem to understand technology on an innate level. Whilst I’m unsure whether this is true for myself, there’s something spooky about the way my nephew, at six, was able to navigate my mobile phone as well as I could. Sebastian, the Director’s step-son, has been testing Dynamics since he was six! At the age of nine, he was building Views and Charts for our company’s Dynamics environments.
The garden was a mystical wood, a park and mountainous region all, stretching and wrapping around three corners of my house. The door shut with a click and I turned for the holly tree. Crouching low beneath the bough, I pulled the hood of my coat tighter around me, careful to turn my face from the spikes.
