You’re left with a few questions quickly realize there’s more to it than you anticipated. No worries mate, we’ve got you covered. In this session we’ll run through the basics of Office 365, what it means to you from a licensing perspective, for an end user perspective, from a service description perspective and most importantly how to provision a tenant, setup user accounts and setup your DNS entries so that you can start collaborating using SharePoint.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
