Office 365 - how are you using it
I have spent a few days messing with Office 365 and wondered how everyone else is using it. For what I can see its just an sharepoint site. I have created a new user with the license for office365 apps and the sharepoint site but when you log in from portal.microsoft.com etc.. it takes you to a blank page with a lovely date on the right and some links and then on the left its got a link to the team site and then some links to user tours. (a note to M$, when you are doing tours I want to see a tour of the stuff not hundreds of smiling faces and pointless powerpoint slides). Where are the web apps? Do you have to go into the sharepoint site to use them. I know its free and all that but I cannot see how we would use this in anger in our site unless we went down the road of hosted emails. I am wondering if they looked at Google apps and how easy and simple it is to use and thought... nahhhh... clunky is best.
I must be missing something really obvious, I was quite excited about using web apps but I am not going to create a sharepoint site just for that which is independant from what I already have. We are looking at tablets soon and I can't see this working. Please someone tell me I am wrong.
PS. I created a user and gave it access to the sharepoint site but its saying that I don't have permission.. I take it it takes a while to propogate
