Full-time employees and students of the Jagiellonian University can install the Office 365 ProPlus desktop version on their devices. The license is strictly related to the employee or student account, which requires logging in during the installation with your login and password to the university e-mail.
Office applications as part of the Office 365 ProPlus package allow for full integration with the functionalities of files located in the O365 cloud (including simultaneous co-editing of a document - the so-called co-editing), as well as for connecting with SharePoint document libraries. What's more, Office 365 ProPlus automatically installs updates, which means that the user always has the latest version of the software.
The license allows for the simultaneous use of the office suite on 5 computers, 5 telephones and 5 tablets, which gives a total of 15 licenses for one person. Office 365 ProPlus can be installed on household devices, so users can use the applications on home computers they use for work.
The license validity is checked every 30 days, which at the moment requires an Internet connection. For the remaining time of using the application, the device does not need to be connected to the network.
The license for Office 365 ProPlus expires upon account closure, which causes applications to go into reduced functionality mode. This means that in office applications it is only possible to preview documents (no editing possible).
Office 365 ProPlus is available to the University as part of the subscription, which is currently valid until the end of September 2020.
Note: Before installing Office 365 ProPlus, it is recommended that you uninstall previous versions of Office.
