Office 365 Pro Plus allows all Glow users to download the latest version of the Microsoft Office Suite on to a total of 15 home machines and personal devices, free of charge.
This provides access to a range of products such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and OneNote. Glow users can download the Microsoft Office Suite on to five PCs or Macs, five tablets and five phones.
How do I download it?
To download Microsoft Office 2016 from the Glow Application Library, search for the ‘Office 365’ tile, shown here. It can be found on the National (Scotland) Launch Pad or you can add it to your own Launch Pad. Further help on the App Library is available here.
To download the software to a PC or Mac, click on the Office 365 tile and follow the instructions. More information from Microsoft is available here.
If you are downloading to an iPad or iPhone, you will need to download the apps from the App Store then log in using your Glow username. More information from Microsoft is available here.
It is also possible to download the apps from within Microsoft O365. To do so, click on the Office 365 link in the top left of your screen. This will take you to the O365 home page. Click on ‘Install Office 2016’ and follow the instructions.
Entering your username
When logging in, you will be asked to enter your username – this is your Glow username plus the domain e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then be transferred to the Glow login screen.
Once you have entered your login details here, your registration will be complete. The Glow username will only activate the software for as long as that account is active in Glow.
