  • Notifying employees about the user ID and password so that they can sign in. they won’t be having the access to their email so you cannot use them.
  • If your business has a domain name ( and you are planning to use Office 365 email then you need to know where the domain is currently registered and have the sign-on info.

If you are planning to move your business to Office 365 all at once then move your domain to Office 365 first. Commence by running the wizard set up and it will ask you to set up the domain.

But if you are planning to move in parts then let’s get started with the following steps.

  • To use the apps, download and install Office Apps on your work desktop and other devices too.
  • For meetings, install Skype.
