    In most cases, you can use the Switch plans wizard in your Admin center to upgrade your plan.

    What is the cloud?

    “The cloud" is a friendly way of describing web-based computing services that are hosted outside of your organization. When you use cloud-based services, your IT infrastructure resides off your property (off-premises), and is maintained by a third party (hosted), instead of residing on a server at your home or business (on-premises) that you maintain. With Office 365, for example, information storage, computation, and software are located and managed remotely on servers owned by Microsoft. Many services you use every day are a part of the cloud—everything from web-based email to mobile banking and online photo storage. Because this infrastructure is located online or “in the cloud,” you can access it virtually anywhere, from a PC, tablet, smartphone, or other device with an Internet connection.

    What happened to the Office 365 Small Business plan?

    Office 365 Small Business has been renamed Office 365 Business Essentials. Office 365 Business Essentials includes all the features of the Office 365 Small Business plan, plus additions and improvements. For example, Active Directory has been added to Office 365 Business Essentials and the maximum number of users has been increased from 25 to 300.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is Office 365 ProPlus?

    Office 365 ProPlus is one of the subscription service plans in the new Office. It is productivity software (including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Access, Skype for Business) that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer. Office 365 ProPlus is a user-based service that allows people to access Office experiences on up to 5 PCs or Macs and on their mobile devices. Traditional Office installations were tied to the computers they were installed on. Office 365 ProPlus enables flexible new deployment options that IT and/or individual users can choose from to install Office.

    What is the difference between Office 365 ProPlus and Office Professional Plus 2016?

    Both Office Professional Plus 2016 and Office 365 ProPlus deliver the same application experiences. However, Office Professional Plus 2016 is a traditional Office installation that is tied to the computers it is installed on, and it is available through volume licensing only. A user-based service, Office 365 ProPlus is available as a subscription.

    Why would I choose Office 365 ProPlus over Office Professional Plus 2016?

    Office 365 ProPlus offers several advantages compared to Office Professional Plus 2016.

    Office Professional Plus 2016 uses Windows Installer Package (MSI)-based installation. Office 365 ProPlus uses Click-to-Run installation and software update management. With Click-to-Run, you can:

    Have Office up and running fast-often in under two minutes.

    Run existing Office 2013, Office 2010, Office 2007, and Office 2003 applications while you install the new Office, so you don't have to interrupt your users' work.

    Keep older versions of Office side by side on your PCs to mitigate any potential file or add-in compatibility risks.

    Get updates delivered to users without interruption. Updates are cached in the background and the next time a user closes and re-opens the Office application, it is up to date.

    Office Professional Plus 2016 is connected to the hardware or device it is installed on. Office 365 ProPlus is connected to the user, which offers these advantages:

    Users can install Office on up to five PCs or Macs concurrently and they will have access to mobile Office experiences across smartphones, tablets, and other devices they use.

    Your organization may also have the flexibility to treat Office as an operational cost instead of a software asset.

    If you are implementing a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, Office 365 ProPlus lets you de-activate Office on user-owned devices when people leave the organization, or if their devices are compromised.

    Do I need an Internet connection to use Office 365 ProPlus?

    Hide Do I need an Internet connection to use Office 365 ProPlus? Office 365 ProPlus is designed to run locally on PCs, so a persistent connection to the Internet is not required. IT administrators can also deploy Office and Office software updates using software distribution tools and infrastructure in more traditional private cloud environments. Because Office 365 ProPlus is pivoted on an active user account, the Office desktop applications perform a daily check for user account status using the Internet. This gives your organization the ability to de-provision Office from user-owned devices if they leave your organization. Office 365 ProPlus can be easily configured to use your email, collaboration, and directory services infrastructure, if you prefer to manage those services on-premises.

    Do I have control over software updates if I use Office 365 ProPlus?

    Yes, you can configure Office 365 ProPlus to apply only the software updates you have tested and validated. You can manage software updates completely in-house, either by using familiar software distribution tools or by directing Office 365 ProPlus to check for updates at your file shares or URLs.

    What does "annual commitment" mean?

    Annual commitment refers to the length of time the service agreement lasts. When you purchase Office 365 ProPlus, it's an annual commitment, but you can choose to pay month to month or pay the entire amount for the year at the time you sign up.

    Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

    You can cancel your subscription at any time. For annual commitment subscriptions, such as Office 365 ProPlus, there is a penalty for canceling before the end of your contract. Read the complete Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement.

    What happens to my data if I cancel my subscription?

    Your data is yours. If you decide to cancel your Office 365 subscription, you can download your data-for example, your email and documents on team sites-and save it to another location. You should save your data before you cancel. After you cancel your subscription, data associated with your Office 365 account will be available to your administrator(s) in a limited function account for 90 days.

    Frequently asked questions

    Do you offer volume discounts to businesses?

A Microsoft expert can help you explore the purchasing options for large enterprises and help you determine which is best for you. Learn more about volume licensing. Find a Microsoft expert.

    Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

    You can cancel your subscription at any time. For annual commitment subscriptions, such as Office 365 Enterprise E3, there is a penalty for canceling before the end of your contract. Read the complete Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement.

    What happens to my data if I cancel my subscription?

    Your data is yours. If you decide to cancel your Office 365 subscription, you can download your data—for example, your email and documents on team sites—and save it to another location. You should save your data before you cancel. After you cancel your subscription, data associated with your Office 365 account will be available to your administrator(s) in a limited function account for 90 days.

    Can I switch to other Office 365 plans?

    Yes. If you need to upgrade, you can transition your account to a different plan. For example, you can upgrade from an Office 365 Business plan to an Office 365 Enterprise plan.

    In most cases, you can use the Switch plans wizard in your Admin center to upgrade your plan. If your subscription has more than 300 users or if you used a prepaid card to purchase your plan, the Switch plans wizard is not available. Plans that are not eligible for the Switch plans wizard can be upgraded manually. Learn more about upgrading Office 365 plans.

    NOTE: When you upgrade your account, your domain name is transferred to your new account, whether you brought your own domain name to the Office 365 account or you set up a domain name with Office 365.

    Can I mix and match different Office 365 plans?

    Yes, you can mix and match Office 365 plans. Please note that there are some license limitations at the plan level. The Office 365 Business, Business Essentials, and Business Premium plans each have a limit of 300 users, while the Enterprise plans are for an unlimited number of users. For example, you can purchase 300 Business Premium seats, 300 Business Essentials seats, and 500 Enterprise E3 seats on a single tenant.

    Will my trial information be transferred to my Office 365 subscription?

    Yes. If you purchase an Office 365 subscription with the same number of user accounts you created by the end of your free trial, the information and configuration for these users' accounts will remain intact. Once your free trial expires, you won't be able to continue using Office 365 for free. You will have an additional 30 days to purchase Office 365 before your account information is erased. Once your trial account information has been erased, it cannot be retrieved.

    I will need extra help setting up Office 365. Who can help?

    Microsoft experts are trained IT and development companies that can help you move to Office 365 or develop custom solutions for your business. You can find a listing of all of our Microsoft experts in Microsoft Pinpoint.

    What if I already own a domain name?

    You can add the domain name you own to Office 365 to create domain-based email addresses. Find your domain registrar or DNS hosting provider. Compare domain management in Office 365 subscriptions.

    Is Internet access required for Office 365?

    Internet access is required to install and activate all Office 365 plans and to manage your subscription account. Internet connectivity is also required to access Office 365 cloud productivity services, including email, conferencing, IT management, and other services.

    Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of Office, for example, Office 365 Business Premium and Office 365 Enterprise E3. One of the benefits of having the desktop version of Office applications is that you can work offline and have the confidence that the next time you connect to the Internet all your work will automatically sync, so you never have to worry about your documents being up to date. Your desktop version of Office is also automatically kept up to date and upgraded when you connect to the Internet, so you always have the latest tools to help you work. Compare Office 365 plans.
