Where Can I Access A Microsoft Office 365 Demo?
Recently, Microsoft launched its consumer version of its Office 365 suite. Aside from the usual tweaks that come along with every new edition of Office - updated interface, cloud service that’s compatible with every device, etc - one of the age-old questions remains and lingers over this release: how much is it going to cost? Ironically, it’s become the most fascinating aspect of this Office 365 rollout.
One of Microsoft’s greatest strengths is its ability to create products that are accessible wherever and whenever you need them. Here’s a brief yet informative rundown on how to access a Microsoft Office 365 Demo for installation, and the devices you can use them on.
Installing Office 365 Business for Windows
Sign into Office 365 at http://portal.office.com/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.* On the Office page, select a Language and then click Install. At the bottom of the screen, select Run. Follow the prompts and accept the license agreement. A message from Office should appear that reads “You’re good to go”. Click All done.
*If you don’t see Office listed in the portal, your plan probably doesn’t include Office applications.
Installing Office 365 for Mac
Sign into Office 365 at http://portal.office.com/OLS/MySoftware.aspx.* On the Office page, select a Language and then click Install. This will install Office for Mac 2011. After the disk image file finishes downloading, select the .dmg file to Open the Office installer. Accept the license agreement and enter your Mac password to start installing. On the Welcome to Office Mac screen, select Sign In to an existing Office 365 Subscription, and then sign in with your Office 365 work or school account.
*If you don’t see Office listed in the portal, your plan probably doesn’t include Office applications.'
Installing Outlook for Mac
Sign into Office 365 at http://portal.office.com/OLS/MySoftware.aspx. On the Office page, scroll down to Get Outlook for Mac and select Install. Follow the steps in the wizard.
Recommended: Remove the Outlook for Mac 2011 Dock, and launch Outlook for Mac using the new icon instead of installing Outlook for Mac side-by-side with the installation of Office for Mac 2011. To delete the icon, drag the Outlook for Mac 2011 app to the Trash (located at the end of the dock).
Accessing a Microsoft Office 365 Demo is simple: Once you download and install the programs onto your computer, you won’t need the Internet to access any of them. Office 365 comes with full-functioning Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more, plus other services such as OneDrive and Skype. This installed Office experience can be used on the following:
- Tablets (such as iPads and Android tablets)
- Mobile Phones
Depending on which subscription plan you have, the number of devices you can install Office on may vary.
