"Feels Like There Should Be More"

June 08, 2011  |  By geekstercosmo

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta

Pros

Ability to access the four main programs needed for all-around use.

Cons

All of the programs have limited functionality

Summary

The Office Live Workspace has changed so much. Feels like they come close to a good thing now and then but something is always missing.

"Works well and is extremely easy to use."

March 27, 2009  |  By ProjectUser

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta

Pros

Eliminates all that file sharing by email for projects with people scattered over several states.

Cons

A little slow sometimes, but with all the time you save it isn't much of an issue.

Summary

I can't imagine why anyone would not benefit if they have project files and need to share. Even people who are not very computer savvy can find their way around the workspace and collaborate on projects.

"It has some issues"

January 21, 2009  |  By davidlee099

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta

Pros

It was offered as an optional update via Windows Update.

Cons

I open MS Word, and the introduction to the Office Live Workspace appears. I signed up and made sure the don't show again checkbox was checked. When I closed Word and opened it again, the intro opened again.

"Excellent. Very User Friendly."

June 06, 2008  |  By ynot13

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta

Pros

This is an excellent service, you don't have to download anything to use it. It easily handles large files, zip files for transferring, I use it in my business and find it works excellent. Some file extensions are not recognized but they can be uploaded and downloaded regardless.

Cons

If you are a dedicated Firefox user or any other browser other than I.E. you can only upload one file at a time. It is much easier to use with I.E.

"Beta gets a FIVE for potential of Awesomeness"

April 06, 2008  |  By K_REY_C

 |  Version: Microsoft Office Live Workspace beta

Pros

Save directly to the web = win.

Access from anywhere = win.

Easy backup = win.

Cons

improvement needed.

Would rather be able to save both to local computer & office live in one swift save. As far as I know the Beta doesn't have that option (or I couldn't find it). Add that and we have a winner.
