ShowHideHow many users does Office 365 Small Business support?

Office 365 Small Business supports a maximum of 25 users. If you have more than 25 users or think you will soon you might want to consider Office 365 Enterprise E1.

Will Office 365 Small Business work with my copy of Office?

Office 365 Small Business works best with the latest version of Office, Office 2010, and Office 2011 for Mac. Office 365 works with slightly limited functionality with Office 2007. You do not need a desktop version of Office to use Office 365 Small Business. However, you will receive a much richer experience and be able to work offline if you do connect a desktop version of Office to the Office 365 services.

What forms of payment can I use?

You can pay with all major credit cards, and your subscription amount will appear on your monthly credit card statement.

Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

You can cancel your subscription at any time. However, depending on the product and the type of subscription you have, there may be a penalty for canceling before the end of your contract. For subscriptions with a month-to month commitment, there is no penalty for cancelling your contract at any time. Subscriptions with an annual commitment may incur some penalties if canceled early. 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. All the data associated with your Office 365 account is deleted 90 days after cancellation.

Can I switch to other Office 365 plans?

You cannot migrate between Office 365 plan families, that is, from an Office 365 small business plan to an Office 365 midsize plan or enterprise plan, or vice versa. In order to change from a plan in one family to another (for example, from a small business plan to a midsize plan, or from a midsize plan to an enterprise plan), you must first cancel your account with the plan you currently have, and then sign up for a different one. You can migrate your account within plan families, for example, from Office 365 Small Business to Office 365 Small Business Premium, or from Office 365 Enterprise E1 to Office 365 Enterprise E3 or E4.

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 anywhere, from a desktop, PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or other device with an Internet connection.

What if I already own a domain name?

You can add the domain name you own to Office 365 to create both domain-based email addresses and a public-facing website.
