Note! The Microsoft Office Online integration is available for all Jottacloud users. Personal users have access to Microsoft Office Online without the need for any Microsoft subscription.
Business users require a Microsoft subscription to Edit files online. Viewing and downloading of files are always available to all users.
The first time a business user tries to open an Office document in Jottacloud, they will automatically be presented with the Microsoft Authentication Dialoge onscreen, and they must confirm that they have an active Office 365 subscription. Follow the onscreen instructions to authenticate your Office 365 subscription. Once completed, they can freely use Office Online in Jottacloud.
If you don't have a commercial work or school subscription for Office 365, you can purchase one here.
