New features in the Office 2016 programs
Office 2016 supplements the previous version with a number of individual functions, some of which are available across programs and provide useful support for the user in his work.
"You wish" (Tell Me) - for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook and Access
In the menu bar of Office 2016, there is an operating wizard called "Tell Me" (German: "Sie wünschen"), recognizable by an icon in the shape of a light bulb. To use it, users simply type briefly into the input field next to it what they want to search for or do, and the wizard displays the corresponding process or offers further support.
Insights - for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook
In order to check terms or facts contained in an Office document or to obtain explanations, it is sufficient to mark them and then click on them to obtain the corresponding search results with the Bing-supported Intelligent Search. These are then displayed in the page area of the Office.
Simplified sharing - for Word, Excel and PowerPoint
Documents in the Office Excel, Word and PowerPoint can now be shared even more easily, including individual rights assignment. Users simply click on the "Share" button in the menu bar.
Improved version history - for Word, Excel and PowerPoint
Especially when several colleagues work together on the same document, it is important that earlier versions remain available. With the "Version History" function, these can be easily displayed and, of course, the respective editing states can be restored.
New chart types - for Word, Excel and PowerPoint
With the help of the new diagram types TreeMap, Waterfall, Pareto (bar chart), Histogram, Box chart and Sunburst integrated in Office, users have access to additional informative graphics with which statistical as well as hierarchical and economic data can be clearly visualized.
OneDrive integration - for Word, Excel and PowerPoint
With the integration of OneDrive into Office 2016, users can now access Office from anywhere and from any device by storing them on OneDrive. This allows users to work on them from anywhere without having to save them locally on a PC or similar or USB stick - even together with others.
Data Loss Protection (DLP) - for Word, Excel and PowerPoint
The DLP function is now also available in Office 2016 for all Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents via SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. This allows administrators to centrally create and manage policies for content creation and document approval. End users can see notices or restrictions on document sharing when the app detects a potential risk.
Program-specific individual functions in Office 2016
In addition to these cross-platform features, Office 2016 also includes new features and enhancements for each edition of each program:
New Word functions in Office 2016
The following functions make working together on a Word document even more productive:
- Real-time input: If several colleagues are working together on the same Word document, the real-time input shows where they are currently making changes so that these can be checked or followed up immediately.

In addition to the new chart types already mentioned, Excel also includes enhancements to existing features and new tools:
- PROGNOSE: With the PROGNOSE.ETS function it is possible to extrapolate time series into data based on exponential smoothing with the established ETS algorithm (Exponential Smoothing) in order to generate short-term alternative forecasts and then make these available as a so-called forecast sheet.
- Interactive diagrams in pivot tables: These newly integrated business intelligence software solutions provide a better overview, especially with complex pivot tables. This includes functions such as the automatic grouping of time values by quarter or month as well as drill-down navigation, which is frequently used in online analytical processing (OLAP).
- LET function: This allows you to name ranges within a formula, which improves the computing power in Excel as well as readability and combinability.
- View filter: To maintain the clarity of an Excel file while working together, the filter view can be used to hide the sort orders and filters of other users.

The following functions not only efficiently organize the daily flood of e-mails, but also make it easier to find content and documents.
- Overview for file attachments: When sending an attachment in Outlook 2016 by e-mail, the program offers the most recently used documents clearly arranged in a list.

New PowerPoint features in Office 2016
The new Outlook functions improve, among other things, time management when presenting and
offer a practical way to highlight content:
- More concise illustration with a brush: To highlight certain elements or sequences during a presentation, presenters can use the integrated brush to direct the attention of the audience instead of using a laser pointer or even a stick as before. By doing this in presentation mode, the original PowerPoint presentation remains unchanged.
- Share function: Thanks to the clearer design of the share function, presentations can now be published more easily and quickly via social media.
- Timetracking: No more long presentations and difficulties to use the given presentation time too efficiently: Time-tracking improves personal time management by showing the presenter the time spent during the presentation, allowing him/her to react and make adjustments at any time.
New OneNote features in Office 2016
OneNote makes sharing information and ideas with others even more practical:
- Share notebooks: Important information such as photos, drawings, videos etc. can be collected and synchronized in one central place for more efficient collaboration on projects.
- Inserting videos: Videos from Office Mix, Vimeo and YouTube can now be easily integrated into a page in OneNote.

New Access features in Office 2016
Access also offers some additions in Office 2016. These include the new data type BigInt, which makes the program more compatible with Windows SQL Server, and support for dBASE has also been reintroduced.
