Since we have upgraded the online version of our school email to Office 365, you might have found it difficult to open Microsoft Office documents that you have downloaded. This could be because you have not updated to Office 2016 yet. This post will explain how to install Office 2016 from Self Service. If you use Outlook, there is also directions on how to configure your Outlook account towards the end of the post.
