Office 365 upgrade

Find out how to install the Office 365 software to your laptop…

You can now upgrade your laptop to Office 365 when it’s convenient for you.

The new software gives you access to the latest Office products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc), along with additional features such as Teams – which you are already using.

It also means you can access Office 365 24/7 from any device, as long as you’re connected to the internet.

Installing Office 365 is really easy too. There’s no need to come into Spencer Close or book in with IT – you can install it from home when you are ready. This could be at the end of the day or on a Friday before you log off for the weekend.

We’ve put together this step-by-step guide to help you find, install and activate Office 365 on your laptop.

You can also book onto some training, so you get the most out of the new upgrade and feel confident navigating the new look and feel of Office 365.
