Ever looked at a document and thought, that’s kind of boring? Or struggled to make your documents stand out? We have too.
But Microsoft Word 2010 includes a bunch of new features that make that pain go away. In fact, it made us think--what if Word had been around as a tool for some of the world’s most significant documents, say the Declaration of Independence?
Well, in this video you can find out exactly how our founding fathers might have easily collaborated using Word 2010. Have a look at this video, and enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip to see the historic sights in Philadelphia (or one of many weekly drawings for an Xbox 360 with Kinect). It’s just that simple--watch & get a chance to win.*
So how would the founding fathers have collaborated on this historic document more easily with Microsoft Word 2010?
First, with the integration of Microsoft Messenger in Word they could have worked together from anywhere. TJ could have chimed in from VA, and GW from DC. spots in Philadelphia.
To add a little flare to their document, they could have used a picture as a background image.
The navigation pane would have also made it super easy for them to get to specific points in the document so they could have made their masterful edits without having to navigate through the entire document.
Each change could have been easily tracked with Track Changes so they (and we) could have seen the evolution of language and the changes each individual suggested or made during the course of development.
And to make sharing their work of art even easier, they could have simply used the Save & Send feature in the Backstage view to notify the King of England of their coup.
We think these new features would have made collaboration easier for the founding fathers, and we hope they’ll help you create and share your brilliant documents as well.
Let us know how you think Word could have helped other great documents come to life. We’d love to know. Enjoy the film!
Oh, and be sure to check out the Office blog for the full run down on all the videos we created.
