Welcome to the Office 365 resource site. Here you will find information about the Microsoft Office 365 tools and services provided by Adventist Health System, including features, documentation on how to setup, configure, manage and use the services, and answers to frequently asked questions.

What is Office 365?

Office 365 is a cloud service, which means the services are made available to users on demand via the Internet from Microsoft’s servers as opposed to Adventist Health System’s own servers. This ensures employees will always have up-to-date versions of these services which include email, calendaring, office suite, online storage, web conferencing, collaboration, mobility, and much more.

What are the features of Office 365?

While the particular features that are enabled are specific to employees’ roles within the organization, features of Office 365 include:

  • Exchange Online includes email, calendaring and contacts with 50GB storage
  • Office Pro Plus 2013/2016 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and Access)
  • Instant Messaging (IM) and web conferencing services provided by Skype for Business
  • OneDrive for Business
  • SharePoint Online team sites for improved collaboration
  • Improved mobile features
  • Employee home program allowing Office Pro Plus 2013/2016 to be installed on up to five devices including work devices

How do I know what my service includes?

To best provide relevant features and services to employees, unique user groups for Office 365 users have been identified. These groups, which are determined by job functions, are referred to as User Profiles. Each user profile has a set of features available to its users. For specific information, and to determine which profile you are identified with, visit the User Profiles page.
