Microsoft Office is about to get one of its biggest change ever. The developers have started implementing the concept of the Fluid Office web platform, which implies the transformation of the office suite into a more powerful tool, largely focused on collaboration. Developers introduced the first interactive blocks as part of this project to Teams, OneNote, Outlook and Whiteboard.
Instead of tables, graphs and lists that are static and tied to specific documents, Fluid components are collaboration modules that allow you to perform different tasks without leaving chat, email, etc. Simply put, this approach allows you to work with a document in a common environment without having to run different applications.
The source notes that everything developers have created with Fluid is the biggest change in Office in decades. At the time of its presentation last year, the Fluid concept looked like a promising development option for the office suite. However, now it is already clearly visible how large-scale the transformation of familiar office applications can be.
Soon, every meeting in Microsoft Teams will be accompanied by built-in collaboration notes. Notes will appear not only in meetings, but also in your Outlook calendar. Anyone with the appropriate permissions can write something in notes at any time and these adjustments will appear to all members of the meeting online. Once you add a new task, it syncs immediately with other tasks in Microsoft 365; and meeting notes are automatically in synchronisation with your Outlook calendar, where they can also be edited online.
