What is Office 365? How is it different from Microsoft Office?

"Office 365" refers to subscription plans that include access to Office applications plus other productivity services that are enabled over the Internet (cloud services), such as Lync web conferencing and Exchange Online hosted email for business, and additional online storage with SkyDrive and Skype world minutes for home.

Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of the latest Office applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. The Office 365 plans that are online-only are a great choice for certain business needs, and they are compatible with desktop versions of the latest version of Office, Office 2010, Office 2007 (with slightly limited functionality), Office 2011 for Mac, and Office 2008 for Mac.

Please note: TemplateZone products are compatible with the desktop version of Microsoft Office, including desktop installations of Office 365 subscriptions. However, our products are not compatible with the online-only version of Office 365.

All Office 365 plans are paid for on a subscription basis, monthly or annually.
