Hvordan få Uendelig Office 365 Education Lisenser

Hvis du er en kvalifisert skolekunde av Microsoft så kan du hente ned uendelig antall Office 365 Education lisenser for fakultet og student. Det er anbefalt å skille mellom lærer og elev/student. Noe funksjonalitet er avhengig av at lisensen er riktig.

Naviger til https://portal.office.com

Trykk på “Fakturering” og velg “Kjøp tjenester”

Husk å merk av for “Planer for Utdanning

kjøp planer

Hvis du ikke har kjøpt de før så havner de litt lengere ned på listen. Jeg har kjøpt det før så hos meg står det “Kjøpt” og jeg må trykke på de tre prikkene for å hente flere eller konvertere til “uendelige lisenser

kjøp flere

Trykk på “Endre lisensantall

kjøp eller hent flere

Velg så “Send inn” og du vil nå få uendelig lisenser for Office 365 A1 (Education)

Enable Microsoft Bookings in Office 365 Education

If Microsoft Bookings is not turned on for your organization by default, this is how you enable it.

My tenant setup

  • Office 365 A1 Education / Office 365 Education
  • My user is  a Global Admin
  • Please note that Bookings is a Office 365 A3/E3 feature (I can enable it but not use it)

Step 1:

Navigate to https://portal.office.com

Step 2:

Click on Services and Addins (The image has local language)

office 365 admin portal

Step 3:

Find Bookings in that list and click it

office 365 services and addins

Step 4:

Make sure that the first slider is set to On

Please take a note of the feature in red.

This feature does 2 things:

  1. Enables Facebook login which makes it easier for users outside your organization to book
  2. Enables sharing to social media.

It is by default “Off”. I suggest setting this to “On” if you are only using bookings with users that belong to your Office 365 Organization. Then you force them to use their Office 365 credentials to login and book. If you want external users, consider setting this to “Off”

enable microsoft bookings

 

Adopted from the Microsoft guide here: Turn on Bookings (Microsoft)

Please se the guide above for instructions on how to turn off/on bookings for individual users.

*Updated Comparison chart Intune enrollment with Education Devices

Here is the comparison chart for the new Education Devices from HP, Lenovo and Acer.

UPDATED: Lenovo Yoga and Dell Latitude

This should illustrate how long time it takes for a student to setup his PC. On Wipe drive i used WICD, On Intune Enrollment I typed the email and waited for MFA. The actual clean logon without user intervention is much faster. On the new user switch, the device was not prepared with Setup My School PC for true multi user. The time it takes is for Windows to prepare a loaner PC or allow a student to borrow another PC in a 1-1 scenario

Send your Office 365 users to your branded portal

If you have set up Office 365 and want your users to be automatically redirected to your company branded Office 365 logon portal here is what you need to do

1-dns-settings-for-office-365-www-redirect
Go into your DNS settings at your registrar

You may use the following destination for your www-forwarding in order to get to your portal:

  1. https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?realm=haukeberg.no

  2. https://outlook.com/haukeberg.no

Note that I can turn on URL cloaking, which means the user will allways see my domain (epost.haukeberg.no) in the URL header when he navigates the site. There are some benefits and drawbacks to this

If you can not find your WWW-forwarding settings, use a CNAME post instead. Here is what you need:

4-cname-post-for-365
If you can not find WWW-forwarding

The destination is:

  1. Outlook.office365.com

Result is as follows:

2-standard-login-365-no-branding
Standard Office 365 portal
3-custom-branding-office-365-portal
Already branded Office 365 portal
