Microsoft 365 FAQs

Does Microsoft offer an intranet?

Microsoft offers many tools and applications that can be used in unison with, or adjacent to, an intranet, but it does not offer an intranet itself. Microsoft intranet software likely refers to Microsoft SharePoint  - an application that allows its users to create an intranet site of their own. Essentially,  it equips users with a tool to build a Microsoft intranet platform as opposed to an independent intranet. 

There are many independent intranets available for enterprises. Unily is one such intranet that affords seamless access to Microsoft 365. It acts as an independent Microsoft intranet solution, letting employees access files from OneDrive, or collaborate in real-time with colleagues on PowerPoint and Word.

​​Is SharePoint an intranet solution?

Microsoft SharePoint can be useful when building an intranet solution. It can be used by organizations that wish to create their own intranet sites and also operates as a document management platform. SharePoint also facilitates internal communication, document sharing, and collaboration among employees. 

However, it is not a complete intranet solution, as it is often unable to improve employee engagement. SharePoint is first and foremost a document management and storage system. An independent intranet like Unily can build on everything that SharePoint offers, while also providing a central hub where employees can connect.

Is Microsoft 365 an intranet?

No, Microsoft 365 is not an intranet. However, it does offer components and tools that can be beneficial when creating one. Instead, Microsoft 356 is a suite of productivity software that includes:

  • Microsoft Teams
  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • Outlook
  • OneDrive

Unily’s intranet solution provides seamless integration with Microsoft 365, allowing employees access to every tool available from one central hub. This means there is no time wasted switching between apps. With integrations to SharePoint, documents can be accessed just as easily.

What's the difference between Microsoft 365 and Office 365?

The difference between Microsoft 365 and Office 365 lies in their naming and terminology. Although the suite of productivity tools is essentially the same, Microsoft 365 is the newer branding, encompassing all the functionalities of Office 365. Therefore, both options offer applications like SharePoint Online, which enable users to build and host intranet sites.

The shift from Office 365 to Microsoft 365 signifies a broader vision for the suite, expanding its scope beyond traditional office applications. Since they are the same thing, both Microsoft 365 and Office 365 are invaluable in the creation of an intranet solution. Enterprise intranets like Unily integrate with this software, helping organizations get the most out of their investment in Microsoft.

How do I create an intranet in Office 365?

Office 365 is a name used to refer to an older version of Microsoft 365. It features some applications that are useful when creating an intranet. Microsoft SharePoint, part of the Microsoft 365 suite, is one such tool. Users can customize the layout, design, and branding of their intranet. They can also organize content, enable collaboration features, and configure security settings.

Independent intranets like Unily can be used to create a single hub that encompasses everything. These solutions create a type of Office 365 intranet that allows users to switch effortlessly between every application.

Can you integrate SharePoint with Unily?

SharePoint can be easily integrated with Unily to create a Microsoft Office 365 intranet solution. Unily picks and chooses the best parts of SharePoint to create an intuitive and easy-to-navigate user experience that promotes employee engagement. Employees can search through their SharePoint documents and libraries with ease.

However, while Unily can integrate with Microsoft 365, and by extension SharePoint, it is completely independent. This means it can integrate with certain other systems that enterprises may already have in use.
