 SkyDrive Pro is a personal library where you can store and organize your work documents. It is an integral part of Office 365 and lets you work within the context of your organization.

8.5 RATING DOCUMENTS AND LISTS

Document ratings   can be especially useful when you have a library of shared documents and you'd like to see which content areas are favored by people who visit the site. Ratings can also help visitors decide which documents or items to review.

Your followers will receive a notification in their newsfeed when you've rated an item on a SharePoint site-that is, if the followers have at least View permissions for the document, and if your newsfeed settings allow this access. To allow site visitors and contributors to rate library and list items on your site, you need to add that capability to the site.

10. OFFICE ON DEMAND

Office on Demand is a feature that provides online access to full rich Office desktop applications, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, when you're using a PC that doesn't have the latest version of Office installed locally. Office on Demand is available to anyone who has an Office 365 subscription that includes the Office application suite. Office 365 subscriptions that include the Office applications let you install on up to five devices for use both online and offline. Office on Demand is a helpful option if you want to use your Office applications on an additional device or on a device that you don't own, such as when you're logged in as a guest using someone else's computer.

When you use Office on Demand, the applications are streamed to the PC you're using as you need them. Office on Demand doesn't get installed. There's no offline access to Office on Demand and there won't be any shortcuts or typical signs of installation left on the computer. If you use Office on Demand repeatedly on the same device, you'll notice that performance improves over time. That's because your computer caches applications that you've previously used. If at some point you want to remove all of the Office on Demand performance cache, simply uninstall the Office on Demand add-in using your Programs and Features option from the Control Panel.

10.1 WHEN TO USE OFFICE ON DEMAND
