At the start of this semester, computers in classrooms, labs, and other shared environments will require that users sign into Microsoft Office if they wish to use Office programs.
When an Office application is opened for the first time since you have logged onto the computer, it will prompt you to sign in. Once you have signed into one application, it will sign into the entire suite and you will not be prompted to again in that session.
Next, you’ll be asked to enter your email (which will be your E-town email), which will open a page where you’ll enter your E-town password. You can then choose whether to have access only to files saved on that machine, or to all files connected to their Office account. Checking Allow my organization to manage my device will allow you to access all files you have connected to your account.
As most shared computers wipe after being used, you will need to re-enter your credentials to access Office each time you sign into the machine.
If you have any concerns about this process, you can contact the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-361-3333 (ex.3333).
