Intro to Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 is more than just your email.  It’s your central point to access all kinds of tools, applications, resources and collaboration.  This article is your introduction to Microsoft 365. With your Business Premium license, you get access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams, SharePoint and much more.  Even better, you get 10 licenses (each) for the desktop and web versions of all the main line Office applications.  This document is designed to get you logged in and quickly up and running.

Logging in for the first time

Your username: your organizational email

Your Password: sent out by Microsoft

The first time you log in, you’ll be asked to setup Microsoft Authenticator.  This is a mandatory requirement and cannot be bypassed.  It’s designed to keep your account, your email, and your business information secure.  Here’s more information on Microsoft Authenticator.

After you are logged in, you’ll immediately have access to both web versions and desktop versions of all your applications. Additionally, the first time you load Outlook, you’ll notice that all of your emails have been migrated from your previous email provider. Please use this Intro to Microsoft 365 as your guide to using Microsoft tools and applications. We continuously keep it up-to-date.

Office: (here you can access all of your online apps and download your desktop apps for installation

Outlook: (this is the web version of Outlook – you can use either the desktop or web versions with your license)

OneDrive: (you get 1 TB of OneDrive storage with your license)

Teams: (Teams is your communications Hub.  You can schedule virtual meetings, chat with co-workers and even with outside parties.  You can also download the desktop version of teams)

Email Migration

It’s important to note in this Intro to Microsoft 365, the first time you log into your email, you’ll notice that only emails up to ~30 days ago have been migrated.  This is intention.  Once everyone is successfully logged in, the remaining emails will be migrated within 24 hours (but it usually happens much faster).
