Update on Office365

10/11/2017

  1.  If you have submitted your mobile number to self-reset you password to your office365 account please follow the ‘Reset password’ instructions below. 
  2.  If you want to use your office365 e-mails on a smart phone please download the ‘Outlook’ app from your respective app stores related to your smartphone and follow the instructions. During the set-up you may be asked to download the ‘company portal’ please do this and continue with the set-up. 
  3.  It is advised that Union e-mails are not directed to your personal accounts. 

Reading attachments to e-mails on a smartphone

Not all smartphones allow users to read attachments easily in the office 365 outlook app.

Downloading the Word app from your app store has helped.

All Microsoft office apps are free so if you’re asked to pay you’re probably trying to download the wrong app.

Forwarding e-mails

For data protection reasons ATL and NUT sections have agreed that automatic forwarding of incoming email to addresses outside NEU 365 will be disabled. Please be aware that Microsoft's systems will still show you the option to forward email in the settings menu in Outlook online but you should not try to turn the option on as email will not be forwarded and may be lost. We have reported the issue of the forwarding option being visible despite being administratively disabled to Microsoft. To access your NEU email please use https://login.microsoftonline.com from any web browser or the Microsoft Outlook client on Android, iOS, MacOS or Windows."

Contacts

We are still looking into a way of importing contacts and will update you with instructions as soon as we can. If you use Outlook on their desktop you can import these using the following help in Office365.

While in your account click the help image icon, top right, type ‘import contacts’ in the field   image.

Depending on what your set-up is choose the option and follow the instructions.

There will be more on importing contacts for those without outlook on your laptop/desktop.

Signatures 

While logged into your office365 account click Settings image, the wheel top right of your page while in Mail. Either use the search box and type in  Signatures or select MailLayoutEmail Signature to create or update your signature.

Feel free to submit your queries but it may be helpful to use the help button first.
