Convert Word Documents into Webpages

Here’s a quick productivity tip that you probably didn’t know (or have never tried): you can convert a Word document into a web page using the Transform to Web feature.

It’s not a new feature — it was rolled out in late 2018, and yet most people are not aware of it. With Transform to Web, you can transform your Word documents into interactive, easy-to-share webpages with just three clicks. This feature offers a variety of styles that look great on any device, allowing you to quickly and easily publish your content to a variety of polished templates, including newsletters and training manuals. You can also view analytics on the page, including who has viewed or read your content.

I originally shared this tip as part of the January 2019 Office 365 Productivity Tips webinar, which you can find on the blog, watch on the CollabTalk YouTube page, or jump to this specific tip within the video by clicking here.
