Microsoft Announces Worldwide Availability of Office Live Workspace Beta

See the full press release for more details

Office Live Workspace lets people organize documents and projects online and work on them from almost any computer. People can save more than 1,000 Microsoft Office documents to one place online,* and access and share them via the Web. They can view and comment on documents in the browser as well as create simple Web lists and Web notes, and share documents in real time through integration with Microsoft SharedView.

Microsoft has also added several new features to Office Live Workspace, based in part on feedback from early beta participants:

Activity panel. A new activity panel shows all the activity in a workspace at a glance.

Notifications. People can now receive e-mail notifications about changes made to their workspaces or documents.

Direct links. People can now bookmark their workspace or a workspace item via a unique URL in a browser window.

Multi-file upload. People can now upload several files simultaneously by simply dragging and dropping from their desktop.

Improved sharing. New sharing functionality includes an easier user interface and auto-completion of e-mail addresses.

Microsoft Announces Worldwide Availability of Office Live Workspace Beta: Customers get immediate access to the new service that extends Microsoft Office, provides anywhere access to documents and enables sharing functionality.
