If you are unfamiliar with Microsoft Office Online, this is the FREE...yes you heard that right...free version of Office for everyone. It's akin to Google Drive's documents (aka Google Docs), but since this is MS's version, it is FULL Microsoft Office compatible.
Why...might you say...should you use Office Online instead of Google Docs? Well, you may not want to if: your businesses has you on Google Docs, you got a ton of stuff on there already (that being said, you can of course move everything over to OneDrive), or you simply don't care.
Otherwise, it's a great option. Yes, you may NEVER have a need to have a truly formatted Office document...until you really need to. It's the dominant Office format in the world (and will be for a long time).
But forget all that...Offline Online is actually nice to use, easy to use, and powerful. There is even a "tell me" feature where you can type in your commands (reminds me of how Google Docs has that as well...similar, but different).
Collaboration is killer with Offline Online compared to Google, and here's why: of course both will have real time editing, etc., but with Microsoft ANYONE can collaborate on a document if you want...no Microsoft Account needed (it's your call, though). Compared to Google Docs where you MUST have a Google account.
Little things like that make all the difference.
But, if you don't want it...well...that's quite ok. Enjoy!
