Prepare Microsoft Office 365 Trial Setup and Demonstration

Prepare O365 Setup

If you used the Global Demo Collab Bot to set up the Office 365, skip to Step 12 in the Add Users section below. If you did not use the set up bot, start with Step 1.

  1. Browse to the Office 365 Trial Sign-up page.
  2. Click Create New Account.
  3. Fill in the information and click Next. It is best to use your work phone and email for this trial. You must use your own unique information, so do not copy what is in the form below.

Your set up windows might differ slightly from screen captures shown here. Do not copy the information in the following screen captures; your information will be unique.

  1. When prompted for User ID, type amckenzie.
  2. When prompted for a domain (for example, cisco shown below), type in a unique domain name. Your domain can be anything you create.
  3. When prompted, create and type in a password. You might have to try different IDs and domains until you get a unique combination that is available.
  4. Click Create my account (or Sign Up or something similar depending on your set up).

  1. Enter your personal mobile phone number to receive a text or your work number to receive a call to validate your request.
  2. On the next page you will see the information you just set up. Save this information or take a screenshot. You will need this information throughout setting up the demonstration environment and the demo. Click Go to Setup.
  3. You are redirected to where you will set up your trial environment in the next section. Also, you should receive an email with a link to this web portal.

It might take several minutes (in some cases, longer) before this setup is complete, depending on the load on the Microsoft servers. If this is the case, just come back later and click Refresh on the page until this is complete before continuing with the next step.

  1. Click Exit setup in the bottom-right corner.

Any changes that are made on Microsoft website can take up to 24 hours to update organization wide. Please plan your demo accordingly. If you have a customer demo please prepare your O365 environment well ahead to ensure all updates are populated before your customer demo starts.
