Office 365 from Microsoft offers four primary services. OUTLOOK is your email service, MY SITE is SharePoint Online where you can store and share documents, Lync is for instant messaging and online meetings and the TEAM SITE which ties them all together.
Office 365 Team Site. This is the preferred link to access your Office 365 services. This site has links to other common web sites and documents for MMC Students. https://mailmartinmethodist.sharepoint.com/SitePages/Home.aspx
By default, Office 365 user passwords are set to expire on a regular basis. When your password expires, you are notified when you sign in.
When you create a new password, use the following guidelines:
If you forget your password, you must contact the MMC Help Desk. Send an eMail from your personal account (Google, Yahoo ...) to firstname.lastname@example.org Do not save this email address. To minimize spam this email address is subject to change without notice.
The Subject of the email must not be blank .. Use something like "Need help with password"
You must include your Student ID and your Martin Methodist email address in the body of the email - along with any notes or comments. If you live on-campus please include your building and room number. If you do not live on campus please include your current address. We will verify all information before acting on your request.
If you do not have a personal account, we recommend setting up a Google account. This will give you access to Google Drive - see below. Or you can come see us in the IT Department - Martin Hall - Room 101
Saving your documents on the web.
