Historically, mobile device users had to install the office apps individually, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. The new unified Office 365 app rolls the most popular functions of those three Office applications into a single download.
NOTE: This application option is available for all apple and android phones. Currently, for tablets, this application is only available on iPads.
To install the unified Office 365 app, open the app store and search for Microsoft Office. Once the app is located in the app store, install the app.
Once the app installed, select the app to launch it.
On the opening screen, select Get Started.
On the following screen regarding privacy and Microsoft, select Next.
The following screen gives the user the option to share diagnostic and usage data with Microsoft. Based on your preferences, select Accept or Decline.
The next screen informs the user that Microsoft may connect with other online services from Office.com. Select OK.
On the next screen, the user determines if Notifications from the app should be Turned on or not. Select Turn On or Not Now.

Once the app is installed, Office 365 may detect a non SHSU account on the device. If so, select Use Another Account to sign into your SHSU Office 365 account. If another non SHSU account is not detected, select Sign In.
