Office Setup Online

Office Online is Microsoft’s cloud-based version of their most popular office programs, which includes:

  • Word Online: Basic version of Microsoft’s word-processing program
  • Excel Online: Basic version of Microsoft’s spreadsheet application
  • PowerPoint Online: Basic version of Microsoft’s presentation graphics program
  • OneNote Online: Basic version of Microsoft’s note-taking application
  • Outlook on the Web: Basic version of Microsoft’s time, calendar and information manager

As long as you have the latest version of Edge, Firefox, Safari, or Chrome, you can use Office Online to view and edit files on devices that don’t have Office installed on them. In Office Online, you can create new documents from your browser and store them on OneDrive, view existing Office documents in read-only mode and edit documents by uploading files to OneDrive (note: you cannot directly open desktop Office files in Office Online; files must be uploaded to OneDrive first).

While Office Suite Standard and Professional provides you with access to the full-featured Office programs. Office Online only covers the basic functionalities of each program. For example, Word Online does not have the Mail Merge feature, whereas Word desktop does, and Excel Online cannot perform Data Validation in cells, but Excel desktop can. For a more detailed list of feature comparisons between Office Online and Office desktop applications, please see Microsoft’s Feature Availability Across Office Online Plans.

If you’re looking for a program to perform light document edits without the hassle of installation. Office Online is a great solution for organizations on the go. However if your nonprofit is needs to do more than view documents and make simple changes. Office Online is better used in conjunction with the desktop version of Office.

Licensing options – How to access Office Online

Office Online is available to anyone for free and only requires a Microsoft Account. If you have a valid Office 365 subscription, you can also access Office Online programs directly in your account. Simply sign into your Office 365 account and expand your Apps menu.
