Office suites category
A site for office suites was proposed here: https://meta.codidact.com/posts/277548. This proposal is still in early stages and unlikely to get enough support to emerge as a site of its own in the near future. Meanwhile, all such questions will end up here and we already know they will be plenty.
I propose that we create a new category "Office suites" for these kind of questions. The reason is that we simply suspect that these questions will be numerous and therefore a separate category would serve to not drown out all other questions. At this point, the majority of the questions already on the site are about office suites. Software Development wishes to migrate a considerable amount of questions regarding Excel formulas etc here, where such questions would fit in better.
When this site becomes active enough, the Office suites category can perhaps emerge into a site of its own.
Examples of what the category can contain, quoted from the above meta proposal:
- MS Office
- a subset of Google's G Suite that includes Docs, Sheets, etc
- Libre office and open office
- WPS office
- Zoho office, etc.
To translate this to abstract terms, it would mean:
- Word processing programs
- Spreadsheet programs
- E-mail clients
- Publishing and presentation programs
- Misc other programs that companies list as part of their "suite": simple DBMS, VoIP and similar.
Please vote on this question up/down if you agree or disagree with this proposal.
Things to discuss regarding overlapping scopes with Software Development:
- Is VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) on topic here? Or other such simplified, built-in script or programming languages?
- Is DBMS design and SQL questions on topic here? Example: MS Access.
Depending on if programs like Photoshop count as part of a "suite", then there is possibly and overlaps with Photography & Video as well.
