Ten New Things in Office 2007

In a series of ten posts, I'll be talking in more detail about ten things that have been added to/changed in Office 2007. We expect to have new Office 2007 CDs ready to send to field offices in early to mid February. if you're on campus, you'll be able to get Office 2007 through your departmental support or through ITS.

Features of Office 2007 that I'll be discussing in more detail over the next week or two include:

  1. Ribbons
  2. Office button
  3. File Formats
  4. Automatic configuration (Outlook)
  5. Live Preview/Styles
  6. New defaults (margins/fonts)
  7. Overlay calendars
  8. To do lists, Flags, and calendars
  9. Permission to view (calendar)
  10. Creating PDFs

Office 2007 will run on Windows XP. At this point there is no requirement for you to move from Office 2003 to Office 2007, but as always with new programs, we will eventually be dropping support for the older version(s). Also, some of these new features make Office 2007 better and easier to use, particularly in Outlook when using calendars. We're hoping that you'll want to take advantage of some of these new features.

A reminder: We'll be offering a look at both Office 2007 and Windows Vista (which replaces Windows XP) via Breeze on Monday, January 22nd at 1:30 PM. If you haven't registered and are interested, go to: http://www.extension.iastate.edu/Comp/training/online for details.
