The November 2017 update for Office 365 brings enterprise customers a number of new features and enhancements to security, privacy, and compliance. For instance, Resume Assistant in Office 365 with LinkedIn integration helps job-seekers cultivate the perfect resume. November’s update also simplified processes for enterprise customers, so they can focus on more important tasks.

Additionally, the November update brought some new tools to allow Office 365 subscribers more tools so they can get things done. Here’s a look at how Office 365 business apps help enterprise customers with their daily business needs.

Advanced eDiscovery is a tool that helps analyze information about a business topic or specific client. Office 365 E5 subscribers can upload documents from outside Office 365 with the Advanced eDiscovery content import feature. The Advanced eDiscovery tool provides enterprises with one way to compile and analyze compliance processes to get things done more efficiently.

Office 365 subscribers can also get more secure OneDrive and SharePoint internal and external sharing links. Now you can send and receive links without requiring a Microsoft account. Compliance Manager is another tool that is built directly in Office 365, that is available starting this month. Compliance Manager uses Microsoft’s security and compliance tools to ensure enterprise customers are meeting regulatory requirements to meet federal industry guidelines.

Microsoft StaffHub is another tool that helps organizations automate many of the daily tasks and manage their workforce more efficiently. StaffHub helps organizations know what projects their employees and working on and when they clock in and clock out on a project. StaffHub helps employers and employees stay informed on what they need to do on a daily basis.

Other benefits of the November 2017 update include:

Automate files with Microsoft Flow in OneDrive
Automatic drive classification with Mile IQ
GDPR Compliance
Office Lens is now integrated within OneNote

Stay tuned for December’s update for Office 365, as Microsoft continues to improve its services for enterprise customers.
