Updating Microsoft Office

Office 365 Email & Calendar

Use these instructions just prior to your migration in order to update your Office 2007, Office 2010 and Lync applications for more seamless integration with Office 365. This will take approximately 5-10 minutes.

If you are not able to complete this update prior to your migration, run the wizard as soon as possible after your migration.

If you are using Office 2013 for Windows or are using a Mac, you do not need to perform this update.

    1. You will need to access the Microsoft Online Services software page on Office 365 to perform this update. If you have not previously logged on to Office 365, you will first be taken to the Microsoft Online Services login screen, where you will enter only your primary email address and hit Tab or click off of the username field.

    2. Because your password is not stored in the cloud, you will be redirected to HUIT's MSO login site to complete authentication against our Active Directory. Enter the password you use to access your email curently and click Login.

    3. Log off of Lync and exit the application at this time, since it's one of the applications to be updated. Click desktop setup on the left, then click set up to update your Office applications.
