Microsoft Online Services Document Portfolio


Tim Tetrick

I want to make everyone aware of a newly updated resource to assist with your Online Services selling efforts. 

The Microsoft Online Services Document Portfolio is a collection of over 120 unique documents all related to the Microsoft Online Services business across Office 365, Windows Intune, and Dynamics CRM Online.  The types of documents included in the Portfolio are service descriptions, datasheets, whitepapers, product guides, deployment guides, tools, pricing/licensing guides, compete info, training guides, etc. 

Some of you may have used previous versions of this Portfolio.  Joshua Shea, Online Services Partner Business Development Manager, and I sat down recently and rebuilt this entire Portfolio from scratch with all current documents and info.  Anyone running the free Adobe Reader and Flash Player is able to view and utilize this Portfolio.

Here are some common ways that partners and customers are successfully utilizing this tool:

  1. Search!   Search for anything and quickly and easily find all references to any topic you’re looking for.  You can also choose to browse via a hierarchical directory structure of topics and categories if you prefer.
  2. As an information repository or deliverable during sales engagements.  Just about everything relating to Microsoft Online Services is here in this single document.  Feel free to share with coworkers or customers by forwarding them the link or copying via thumb drive.
  3. As a training tool or desktop companion.  Partners and customers new to Office 365, Intune, or CRM Online will like having all relevant info in one location.  It’s quick and easy to extrapolate documents from the Portfolio and then print or save them as individual files.

The Microsoft Online Services Document Portfolio is available via the following link.  Please note that the document is 126MB so there will be a delay in your browser while it downloads.  Once it opens you’ll be able to view it within your browser or save it locally:

(As Joshua and I update the content in this portfolio we’ll keep the same filename so this link should always represent the latest content.)

In addition, take a look at the following “How-to” video that walks through best practices for how to use and get maximum value out of the Portfolio.
