One response to “SPCUG

  1. Just to be clear about the new office app, it’s a front end menu for office users. In itself it doesn’t have any word processing capabilities or anything like that. It’s just a new clean menu interface for office when you first login .I’ve been using it for sometime because it’s actually already embedded in office it’s just not prominent, you can choose to have it as your landing spot or not but in the near future version there will not be a choice. It will be the landing page for your login.
