On October 1, 2007, Microsoft announced pre-registration for the beta of Microsoft Office Live Workspace, the new web-based extension of Microsoft Office that will let people access documents anywhere, safely share and collaborate and work seamlessly with Microsoft Office.
Microsoft has received tremendous interest in this offering over the last couple of weeks and for the first time they are sharing screenshots of Microsoft Office Live Workspace to provide a sneak preview of what this offering may look like.
As a reminder, people can pre-register for the beta of Office Live Workspace by going to www.officelive.com. Microsoft Office Live Workspace will be available at no charge later this year.
The screenshots illustrate the following page views:
– Office Live Workspace – file preview shows the ability to preview Microsoft Office files, in this case a PowerPoint slide, within a browser.
– Office Live Workspace – shared workspace projects and programs view shows a listing of documents/ files in your workspace and the status of each.
– Office Live Workspace – event list date and calendar view showcases the ability to create and manage schedules.
