Office 365 Activation Explained

Office 365At Ingram Micro Cloud we often receive questions from resellers about the Microsoft Office 365 activation process. For resellers who are unfamiliar with the process it is sometimes difficult to find important information. To help out new resellers we have summarized the two main activation processes.

How to activate Microsoft Office 365?

After an order has been processed, the reseller will receive an order confirmation. This confirmation contains the authorization number and license number from Microsoft.

When all licenses are charged by Microsoft in the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center ( VLSC ) Microsoft will send an activation email directly to the end customer. The reseller can activate the license for his client in two ways:

1. Customers in the Microsoft Open program can activate their Office 365 subscriptions by using a new simplified process that eliminates the need to manually copy and paste product keys.

This guide is for administrators who:

  • Have purchased Office 365 subscriptions that they want to activate.
  • Want to activate their subscriptions by using a new streamlined method that does not involve the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC).

2. If this does not apply to you and you want to activate subscriptions to Office 365 and other online services by using the VLSC, see the guide Activate Online Services in the Volume Licensing Service Center.

This guide is for administrators who:

  • Already use the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) to manage some products.
  • Want to activate new online services in the VLSC.
  • Also need to manage some products in the VLSC other than just online services.
