Description: The article is about .portal office. The author shows us how to log into the new office 365 system. He gives the introduction on the basic features of their new email system. You have many different options while you are using the email system.
The purpose of this article is to show you how to log into our new office 365 or email calendar and contact system at Salisbury Christian school. Wherever you are in the world,you’re at home or away on a trip or somewhere,you can log into Google and type in office 365 login and click enter. It should be one of the first ones. It might be one in the top three or four or five but you need to log into the one that says https://login.microsoft.online.com. There are other ones seem like the link and do not use those.
You can use the one that’s https://login.microsoft.online.com. I want to click sign-in. You won’t have to do that when you’re at school because you’ll have a tab on your internet browser that says sign in. So you can click open up your internet browser,you can click sign in and you’ll get this page. I’m going to move on and login. Your username is your normal email address. Mine is Jay Fox at Salisbury Christian.org and I’ll text alert you the password. I don’t want to say it on public. We don’t want people hacking into our email all around the world. I’ll text alert you your new password. I will click sign in.
You’ll see when you first log in or sign in after you hear the music. You’ll see a large blue screen here and it will have some different things about office 365. You can look through it if you want to. After you log in a few times,it will go away. But at the top of your screen,it will say outlook,calendar and people. That are your email,your calendar and your contacts. I have a few other options because we’re testing some other possibilities with office 365. But you’ll still see outlook,calendar and people.
You can click on Outlook. This is the type of screen that you’ll get. Over the left hand side,there will be all of your folders that we copied over from the old system. If you want to hide those,you’ll see a little arrow here. There are two arrows for which you can choose hide or unhide your folders. The section in the middle will be your emails. As soon as you click on it,you’ll see the email over on the right side.
You can ad these by going in between,click and drag tomove them around a little bit. I’m going to leave them like they are. Some other things that you’ll see here and you need to be aware of is the small little arrows. It means hide and unhide so this one is pointing down. I’m going to close it and it will collapse everything that under the folder inbox. I’ll click on it again and you’ll see it’s pointing down to the right.
All of the ones have folders. Within folders,you’ll see these small arrows. All of these folders are under academic. I’ll click that little arrow and they’ll be hidden or collapsed. If you don’t see all of your folders,make sure that you check these little arrows out.
What you’ll see on the left is a button for new email. You can click that. You can type in the email address to the person that you want to send that to and then your subject and click there to put in your subject and then click write your email. I have a signature in here that’s what they called signatures.
You can add those later if you want. Then you can click send or if you change your mind that you don’t want to send the email,you can click disregard. You can also attach a file. If I click on insert and attachment,it will open up a box and you can find your file that you want to attach and it will attach a file for you.
Anytime you see three dots in office 365 it means that there are more options. You can click on that to get some more options. As we move over to the right,you’ll see outlook,calendar and people. I’ll write another article on the calendar. I’ll go back to the outlook. You’ll see a little gear box,this is where you can change some settings. You have a number of different options here.
I’m going to click Change theme. I think I like this red one and then you can go back up and click OK. You can use whatever you want. It’s a way to customize the look of your email. If you want to change your password,you cann click that little gear box again. Under options,you’ll have two different options. My account or connected accounts. You can click on my account then you can look over on the right. You have the access to change your password.you can click that and follow the instructions to change your password. You also have other things. Yours might look a little bit different,but you’ll have some other options. You can click on those and look through them.
Another one here is set up an automatic reply message. If you’re out of the office or out of the classroom or in the summertime,you can click on that and you can follow through to send a automatically reply message. To get back to your calendar you can click outlook. The music is making some reminders there.
That’s your email. Now a couple other things are you can delete email. As you scroll over each one,you’ll see an X or a flag. You can flag emails for different things. If you double-click,you’ll see the conversation or the emails that have gone. I sent the original email. It seems like Christy responded and then Christy responded and then I also sent Christy a response. You can click on on one of them. You’ll see them over on the right.
You don’t have to use that feature because when you see your email over here,you can also scroll down if it is long. You have a scroll bar and you’ll see the different emails. If you have a lot of different emails in your inbox,you can also click search mail and people. I’m going to type in the word Frank’s and click enter. All of the emails that have the word Franks in them will come up on the screen here.
To get rid of that search you can click and here are some other options. If it was more than a week ago and you want to search it in the inbox or you want to search the entire emails,those are some other features for your search. I’m going to X out of here and it’ll take you back to your inbox. For this you can move these emails to different folders by click and then drag them to your folders. If it’s down a little bit farther,you can go down a little bit and they’ll start moving.
I want to leave this one here so I’m going to let it go.If it stays in my inbox,that’s how you do that. To reply to an email,those are your buttons for reply, reply all or forward. If I want to reply to this email I can click reply. It already has the address of the person who I’m sending it to,I will type the email message and click send again. I’m going to discard because I don’t want to do that. Those are the basic features of our new email system. Hope you have found this helpful for you.
