The pandemic of COVID-19 causes the global trend of people working remotely. Due to these new economic and social circumstances, Microsoft has decided to make Office 365 available for free for 6 months including online versions of Microsoft Teams, Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint.
While reading this article, you will learn whether you meet the conditions that Microsoft sets to be able to use the E1 Trial plan for Office 365 and learn the details of this plan.
Who can use 6 months of free access to Office 365?
To put it simply – it applies to all entities that have not yet used the Office 365 E1 Trial. It is worth noting that if you use the 6-month Trial, it prevents you from using a different Trial version later.
What’s in Office 365 as part of the E1 plan?
Firstly, all classic Office applications in the Online version: Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Teams. They can be used via a web browser – from anywhere in the world on desktop and mobile devices.
Particular emphasis was placed on team cooperation. It is the reason 1 TB of cloud space has been made available as a part of OneDrive under the E1 Trial plan. This allows you to quickly and securely exchange files with coworkers and people outside your organization. It is worth noting that due to the Online version of the abovementioned applications – even several users can efficiently work on one file.
A vital element of the E1 plan is also the Microsoft Teams collaboration and communication environment, which allows you to exchange messages in the form of text, voice calls and video conferencing. It is possible to share your screen with other users, which further facilitates teamwork. A significant advantage of Teams is also the ability to transfer files and work together directly from the application quickly. Besides, within Teams, you can also use solutions such as Planner, which allows you to delegate tasks and plan work, or Calendar through which you can arrange meetings – even these virtual ones.
