Frequently asked questions about Office 365
What is Office 365?
Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription based plan that gives you access to Office applications and services online. It brings familiar Microsoft programmes such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint together with file sharing and collaboration tools, online video conferencing and instant messaging capabilities and OneDrive secure online storage. All well-known desktop programmes have been reimagined for online use on any device, ensuring there is no loss of formatting.
What is the difference between Office Online and Office Premium?
With Office Premium you get all the Office tools you get with Office Online but you also get Desktop Apps, iPad Apps and Mobile Apps. This means subscribers to the Premium package can have all the Office Apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Publisher and Outlook) downloaded onto their PC or Mac or mobile devices and will be able to work offline without a problem. Office Premium also gives you versions of Office Apps that are specifically designed for use on iPads and mobiles giving the ultimate Office 365 user experience.
What is the Cloud?
The term 'Cloud' describes a computer setup where everything is based online, instead of being stored locally on your server or your premises. The Cloud infrastructure is hosted by a third party and is very dependable as multiple servers, or computer nodes, share the workload.
In the case of Cloud Storage, items are stored across multiple computer nodes so if one fails, there are enough remaining to pick up the extra load. This means the user will never experience any downtime or loss of performance.
With Cloud you can access your files from anywhere, on any device via the Internet and even if you lose your device, you will never lose your files. Many services you use every day are cloud-based, including web-based email and online banking.
Do you need the Internet to use Office 365?
Yes, you need an Internet connection to install and activate Office 365 packages and use all Cloud-based services such as Exchange Email, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business, OneDrive and Office Online Apps. If you’d prefer to work offline, our Office Premium package contains the desktop version of Office applications so once installed on your PC or Mac, you still have full access.
Once connected to the Internet your files can automatically sync with your OneDrive Cloud storage to ensure a) they are backed up and b) up-to-date. You’ll also have access to the latest versions of your tools and apps at all times when online.
Who can help me set up Office 365?
We provide a free service called 'Supported Setup'. Our team of specialists will validate your domain name and configure your DNS (Domain Name System) records to ensure you can make full use of all your Office 365 product features.
If you are familiar with DNS records and wish to set up your Office 365 subscription manually, or if you wish to change anything after set up, you should follow the 'Manual Setup’ process within your Online Control Panel.
Do I need a domain name to use Office 365?
Yes, your Office 365 product is linked to a domain and this link is verified during your Office 365 setup. All of your Office 365 services will be associated to your domain name including your email address i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens if I already have a domain name?
If your domain is registered with us, simply enter it in the cart when you buy Office 365. Our team will take care of setting up your subscription and will let you know when you can start using your Office 365 plan.
If your domain is registered to another provider, you will need to enter it in the shopping cart and once you have completed your purchase you will receive an email directing you to your Online Control Panel. Once there, you can complete 'Manual Setup’ of your Office 365 subscription.
Can I use Office 365 with Windows Vista or Windows XP?
Office Premium supports Windows Vista and Windows XP for most of the web-based functionality. However, it does not support the downloading and usage of the latest Office software and you can’t substitute Office 2010 for the newest version.
You can connect your existing Office 2010 or Office 2007 software to your Office 365 service, but if you are using Windows Vista or Windows XP, you won’t be able to install Office Premium software. It’s not possible to replace Office Premium software with a download of Office 2010.
I already have a website; can I still use Office 365?
Yes, you can use Office 365 on the same domain name as your current website. If your domain name is registered with us, we (or you) can set up your Office 365 subscription on this domain by changing your DNS records accordingly.
If your domain name is registered with another provider, you will need to change your DNS records with that provider. Instructions on how to do this can be found in your Online Control Panel on your Access Office 365 page.
I already have email with my web hosting plan, what happens to this if I use Exchange Email?
If you already have email set up with any of our products we won’t automatically switch your email when you purchase Office 365 (Exchange Email, Office Online and Office Premium packages).
There is an option to switch your email to Exchange Email within your Online Control Panel. When you switch, new emails will start arriving into your Exchange Email inbox, and will stop being received by your previous email service. All old email messages will remain within your previous email inbox. If you want to migrate your old emails to your new inbox, raise a support enquiry and a member of our team will be happy to talk you through the process or our team can do all the hard work for you for a small fee.
I can’t see all the Office programmes when I go to the Office installation page, why?
There are two reasons why this may be the case. Firstly, the programmes available to install differ on each Office 365 package. Secondly, it depends whether you are installing on a PC or a Mac.
Office installation on a PC includes: Excel, Skype for Business, OneNote, PowerPoint, Publisher, Word.
Office installation on a Mac includes: Excel, PowerPoint, Word. Also for a Mac, you can download OneNote from the Mac App Store for free.
What is Azure Information Protection?
Azure Information Protection (AIP) is a security application that runs alongside Office365. AIP allows you to have more control over your data, by understanding who has access and controlling what they’re doing with it. Plus, you are able to protect and encrypt emails to ensure the safety and privacy of your emails and documents.
