□ Office 365 if you do not own a personal copy of the Microsoft programs you need

To get Office 365, go to browser to https://portal.office.com .  Should a window prompt you to select the account type, choose option “Work or school account”.  Then, enter your @eosmith.org email address and your network password and sign in.  Once, logged in you may click on any of the available apps.  Here you’ll have access to web-based versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint.  Please note that web-based versions of the app have reduced functionality.  For added functionality, you may wish to download and install the Office365 apps to your PC or Mac, click “Install Office” above and to the right of the app list.  Follow the on-screen instructions.  Versions of these apps are also available on Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices by following these instructions.  For a Chromebook, you must use the web version as no app is available for the platform.  

It’s important to note that these apps do not provide access to your Google Drive, My Documents or Department Shares at work.  Any of these files that you need should be selectively copied to a USB or uploaded to your Microsoft OneDrive.
