We're updating our site to improve your experience. We apologize for any issues that may occur.
Right now we use Dropbox to allow members to access data off site. Dropbox has changed their policies so that you can only connect 3 devices and this is causing a problem.
Looking at Office 365 E3, it looks like we could get 1 account for about the same price as 1 year of dropbox, but can I share with @outlook.com emails?
Also, if I got a second account to install Office on all the computers, and thus bring them up to the latest version, is there any way I could block the different workstations from seeing the most recent documents?
just wonder why you want to do that?
most non-profit can get free 365 E1 account with unlimited users. each users can be have up to 5TB. you can also created team drive that share as well.
if you have less than 10 users, you can apply for 365 business, MS give NP 10 free licenses. that included local install Office version as well.
if they are sign in using the same account, you can't block recent documents.
I have been having trouble getting an answer on rather or not a volunteer fire department that is incorporated as a stand-alone 501.C.3 would qualify for either of the free licenses.
Hi- Gary here, CSP Ops Manager. Volunteer Fire Departments with current 501(c)(3) status would be eligible. We currently offer up to 10 licenses for Microsoft 365 Business for free. The bundle includes Office 365 with installable apps, security tools, online storage, collaboration tools plus a Win10 upgrade.
Is the organization you are referring to already registered with TechSoup? Our website has an eligibility quiz that will help you get started.
For information on what sort of Microsoft license you organization is qualified for, you can confirm your eligibility for Microsoft Software Discounts, here.
Hope this helps as a starting point. However, should you have further questions, please let us know.
Sincerely,SusanTechSoup Social Media Manager
To help answer that, Microsoft, and by extension, TechSoup would need to review your eligibility and federal 501c(3) status for approval. However, assuming everything is in order, volunteer fire departments tend to be qualified for the offer. The best way to confirm this is to register with Microsoft for nonprofit's at "nonprofit.microsoft.com". You will 'Register' to complete the Microsoft steps for approval for the donated and discounted Office 365 products.
Again - nonprofit.microsoft.com to get started.
We are registered and approved with Tech Soup. I'll get started with the Microsoft thing. That would be awesome if we could do this.
So I applied to this and got a response tonight. Their website is not the easiest to understand, but I think that we were denied the free E3.
They gave me 25 users on a "Nonprofit portal" license
If I look into the options for products and services, I can purchase E3 for $4.50/month/user
The E1 is free though, so I guess I could move forward with it and just continue to use Office 2016 and upgrade later to 2019.
E3 is not free. but if you have less than 10 users, you can also get 365 business (10 licenses free). this included MS office 365.
if you have more than 10, since you already approved with MS, you can order MS Office 2019 from techsoup.
