O365@Home and Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

This page contains instructions for temporary access for NNL and BPMI employees to access Office 365 (O365) using a personal device. There are two ways to access O365: (1) via the Desktop as a Service (DaaS) environment, or (2) directly from your personal device.

Please note: DaaS will be the only way to access O365 in the near future from a personal device (~Oct 2020). You should use DaaS if you have a Windows 10 device. DaaS is not supported currently for Mac and Chromebook. However, IT will be providing a solution for these devices before the access restriction is implemented (~Oct 2020). Company iPhones and iPads will continue to connect to O365 directly as DaaS is not supported on those devices.

Please refer to the supported platforms and logon instructions below to logon to DaaS or O365 from a personal device.

For login support issues from a personal device please call the Enterprise IT Service Desk at (518) 395-4357.  When prompted, press option 1 for DaaS or O365 assistance.  The Service Desk line is staffed 7:00AM to 4:30PM ET Monday - Friday.
