Offering benefits way beyond programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, Outlook and more, Microsoft 365 is a suite of productivity, storage, multi-media and business applications that allows you to collaborate and share your work across campus, teams and classes. You can access Microsoft 365 applications by logging in at: https://office.com. Sign-in using your university email address and password.
Check for new applications such as Power BI Pro and Visio in your Microsoft account. After signing in, click on the waffle in the left-hand corner and view the list of available applications. Power BI Pro allows you to connect to and visualize data by creating interactive reports. More information about getting started with Power BI is available at Microsoft Power BI Training and Get Power BI Desktop.
All Microsoft 365 applications - including email - require MFA to provide additional authentication for proof of your identity whether on-campus, off-campus, or your mobile device.
If you already have Outlook and Microsoft 365 apps installed, be sure you are using an updated version - either Office 2016, Office 2019 or Office365. If you are experiencing an issue with authenticating, please check that you are using supported devices and operating systems.
Troubleshooting: If you are having difficulty with Office 2016, OIT recommends uninstalling Microsoft Office and reinstalling the full office package using Office 2019 and above.
OIT also recommends using the Microsoft Office 365 desktop or mobile device applications for access to these programs. You will only be prompted for authentication about once every 90 days when using the desktop applications. If you use a web browser to access Microsoft 365 apps, you will be prompted for authentication with each new browser session.
First: Install the Duo app on your preferred device (we highly recommend doing this on your smartphone).
Once you install the Duo app, register for Duo and select your authentication method and device; then you're all set! (Please note: If you already installed and registered for Duo, you don’t have to register again.)
Reminder: A Duo MFA challenge is good for 90 days for the same device. However, if you then log in from outside our trusted network using a different device or from a web browser, you will be challenged again by Duo MFA.
Linux Users: With the implementation of MFA when using Microsoft 365 products, you will need to keep your browser open or you will be required to authenticate at the beginning of each new session. Be sure you have installed the most recent browser for Linux.
You can access all of your applications across any platform on any device! Office is available free on up to 5 PCs or Macs (and other mobile devices) to current CU Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff and students. Learn how-to:
