How to use Office 365

1. First of all

At Mie University, both the application-based cloud service Office 365 by Microsoft (hereinafter referred to as "Mie University Office 365")
and the application-based cloud service by Google (hereinafter referred to as "Mie University G Suite") are used. It can be used with a unified account.

"Student Email System" uses Gmail in Mie University G Suite as a base system.

Mie University Office 365 is used to distribute Office for home (private use).

Both have an online storage feature that can be used as a file store.

We call it "OneDrive" for Microsoft and "Google Drive" for Google.

Here, we will introduce how to use OneDrive and how to use it in conjunction with Office software.

2. Notes

  1. Online storage (OneDrive, Google Drive) provided by our center is provided for the purpose of conducting academic work at our university.
    Please do not use it not in line with the purpose of offering.
  2. Be careful with settings, as online storage can be read and written by anyone other than you, depending on your settings.
    Even if you don't intend to open it to the public, if it is "public", it is subject to searches and may be accessed from unexpected places!
  3. The following usage is prohibited.
    • Use for the purpose of publication and sharing to unspecified many.
      *It is also possible to do "public" that some people share, but there is no problem with such usage.
    • Use for illegal acts such as delivery of the work of another person's work.

In addition, when "This PC" is selected, it is stored inside the PC.
In the PC classroom, it is stored on the file server for the PC classroom, not in the PC, so it can be accessed from any PC as long as it is the PC of this Center.

4. Thinking about signing in from Office

Please note that sign-in from Office software is different from general login and log-off.

If you sign in from Office software, the information will be recorded, and the next time you launch Office software, you will be signed in automatically.

Also, "signing out" will delete the sign-in information.

In addition, this sign-in information is shared among Office software.
