Microsoft Office 365: How many computers can I install Office 365 on?

Office 365 is a widely used around the world in organisations across every industry. The good thing about Office 365 is that it can support multiple business devices at the same time, making it easier to manage office operations and IT needs. With an Office 365 business plan, you can have Office apps installed and signed in on five Macs or PCs, five mobile phones, and five tablets.



Here are a few helpful tips for getting the most of your business plan with multiple devices.


Automatic Sign-In

You will automatically be signed in to Office when you sign in to Windows on your work account. For Macs and mobiles, activate Office by signing in on your work account. Office 365 stays activated for as long as you stay signed in. Once you sign out, the apps are deactivated until the next sign in.


Limits

Sometimes, Office may automatically sign you out of devices after an extensive period of time to maintain the sign-in limit and ensure proper security. All you have to do is sign back in, a process made easier by password storage backed up by multi-factor authentication. You can view and print documents, but not edit or create new files until you sign in again.


Microsoft Surface Pro

Versatile Surface Pro 2-in-1 laptops are becoming more and more popular for small and medium-sized businesses that like the flexibility of working from anywhere with these computers. If Surface Pros are part of your office computer collection, then remember they are hybrid Windows machines that can count as a PC or a tablet when managing sign-ins on devices.


1 TB Storage

When considering Microsoft Office 365, keep in mind that each user gets one terabyte of online storage. This enables file storage, access, and sharing from anywhere in the world. Other advantages include the teamwork hub of Microsoft Teams, where you can connect with the rest of your team over chat or video on any supported device.
