To demonstrate this signing application,we’re going to download this and install it,I’ll I’ll show you how to walk through the initial configuration or setup of the application,we will follow it all the way through until we watch it loading into the portal.
The first step is to download the application,in this case I’m going to go ahead and run it and not save it to my desktop. We’ll go ahead and accept the licensing terms,we need to choose the defaults for the installation location and click install,it’s a small installation file,it takes a couple minutes to install.
The next step that we’re going to do is to start the Microsoft online services signing application. I’m going to enable that,I am going to finish this setup. The other thing that I’m going to do is to go ahead and sign out and close the browser. We are ready to test out the signing application,let’s open up to sign an application,we are going to use my username and password. I’m going to go ahead and enable the three checkboxes for remembering my username and my password.
It will automatically sign me in,it will automatically run the authentication process when I open up the sign in application. If this is the first time you’re running the site in application on your machine,it’s going to make some changes to Internet Explorer,it warns you of this,you can click continue and the Sydenham application will do the rest of it.
It may take a second after the changes in Internet Explorer had been made. Two more changes are needed to be made,the one is for Microsoft Outlook and the other is for Microsoft Office Live Meeting,we’ll go ahead and apply these configurations.
Once they have done,you’ll see three icons available,outlooks are going to automatically start for us. But we also have three sets of icons,this one is for email and calendaring,it has a sub or a child icon that will take you to the Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access site.
We also have the web conference for the Microsoft Office Live Meeting link and a link to my company portal,each of these links will automatically take us to those sites and authenticate us with our count on Microsoft online services. I’m going to wait for outlook to finish doing its thing. You might take a few minutes. In the meantime,we can go straight to my company portal,internet explorer automatically opens up for me. I have two welcome messages,you can see that I’ve already been authenticated.
When outlook is finished,you’ll see that outlook has already been authenticated and connected with the exchange services available in my Microsoft online services account.
I can also go straight to my team site or my SharePoint site,I have a team site collection. I can go straight to it without having to authenticate it. That’s what I have to show for you today. This is the sign-in application for Microsoft online services,you can install it and configure it with your username and password,it’ll do the rest.
It will figure outlook for you,you can use the exchange services in your Microsoft online services account,it will provide you with a set of links that allow you to access those websites for a live meeting,you also have access to your Outlook Web Access and your company portal without the need to re-enter your authentication credentials.
