Microsoft launches Office 365 toolbar for macOS

Microsoft is launching a special Office 365 toolbar for macOS, providing quick ways to access documents, calendar items, and more. My Workspace is the result of Microsoft’s Garage program that encourages employees to create apps in their spare time. The latest macOS app is designed to sit in the toolbar area and includes a quick overview of calendar items to let you join Skype meetings or RSVP to events.

Just like Dropbox or OneNote, My Workspace also includes a list of recently used files and you can pin important ones or just open them up straight from the app. There’s also quick shortcuts to popular Office 365 settings, and the ability to pin Office Mac apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook. The app is available immediately free of charge, and it’s a useful addition if you’re a Mac user who regularly uses Office 365 documents.

My life is now complete..

Is there anything like this on Windows?

No amount of hipster filter will hide that non-transparent loading icon..

and the entire web based part of office 365 should be labeled garage project.

Why does the title say "Office 365 toolbar" instead of the actual name, My Workspace, or at least describe it as a menubar app? I genuinely didn’t understand what the author meant by "Microsoft is launching a special Office 365 toolbar" until the video loaded. A toolbar is found inside apps, while the menubar is what the author is referring to.

Maybe it’s me, but the design is hideous, much Windows like

How about they make Outlook not slow as dirt.
