Microsoft Touts Co-Authoring, Scheduling Assistant, and Broadcast Slideshow in Office for Mac 2011

Microsoft has posted a behind-the-scenes look at several new features in the company’s forthcoming Office for Mac 2011. The new features include:

  • Co-Authoring: Using SkyDrive or SharePoint cloud storage, Office for Mac 2011 allows multiple authors to edit documents at the same time. And with Office Web apps, even users without Office installed on the computer can participate in the editing process.
  • Scheduling Assistant: In-line calendaring in the mail portion of Outlook simplifies scheduling of meetings and other events, integrating communication channels with calendars.
  • Broadcast Slideshow: Allows users to share PowerPoint presentations over the Internet in real-time, even with users without PowerPoint installed on their computers. Remote users can watch live while the present runs through their presentation.

Office for Mac 2011 is slated for release late next month.
