Adult Scout members holding a key leadership appointment as designated in ScoutLink will be issued with a Scouts NSW email address through Microsoft Office 365. Scouts NSW email recipients will also be provided with access to a suite of Microsoft Office 365 Online tools and applications that can be used to improve productivity, collaboration, and secure file and document sharing and management.
Office 365 Online is a completely cloud-based (online) suite of tools that is accessed via a web browser on any device, not from a desktop. It can be accessed from web browsers such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer (Edge), and more.
