Microsoft Office 2016 Apps for Glow Users
It is possible for all Glow users to get copies of Microsoft Office 2016 to use on your own PCs, Macs, phones and tablets.
Having this will allow Glow users to have a range of Microsoft products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote etc) on up to 15 home devices without cost (the 15 licences being split as 5 for PCs and/or Macs, 5 for tablets and 5 for phones).
To Download Office 2016 Apps
To download the software to a PC or Mac, click on the tile below on RM Unify on the National Launchpad and follow the instructions (you can also add it to your own “My Launchpad”). More information from Microsoft.
To download to an iPad or iPhone the process is different, download the apps from the App Store and then log in using your Glow username. When logging in, you will be asked to enter your user name and this is your Glow user name plus the domain e.g. email@example.com, once you do this, you will be transferred to the usual Glow login screen to enter your details then your registration is complete. More information from Microsoft.
N.B. The Glow username will only activate the software for as long as that account is active in Glow.
It is also possible to download the apps from within Microsoft O365 – within O365, click on the Office 365 link in the top left of your screen and from the O365 home page, click on “Install Office 2016”
