New Office 365 App Launcher

Again there has been a new usability function added to Office 365. Some people call it the “Waffle”. It is in the top left hand corner and when you click on it, you can get to any Office 365 App.

I absolutely love it. It is changing the way I use Office 365.

I will be honest, at times Office 365 felt like SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Exchange Online, Lync Online, Office Online, Yammer, etc. were all separate applications. Now through the browser, these applications are all meshed together. I challenge people to spend the entire day in the browser experience and you will see everything is connected.

The “Waffle”, officially called the Office 365 App Launcher provides you the ability to quickly access apps. You can create a Word Online file, jump over to OWA, etc. You have the ability to pin your own personal items into the menu as well that you use the most. Plus organizations can customize the App Launcher with custom theme for your company.
