I just downloaded this office application to my mac but I can't use them.. They required me to sign in but I can't sign in with the student e-mail address and password of RMIT account. I also tried to sign in with the password which I put first when I created the office account. Do you have some idea why I can't sign in?

Will we also be moving our email out of Google? I don't think it's a great that when students email staff about personal matters, this information gets absorbed into Google.

Microsoft didn't send verification code back to my email.

How can I fix it?

i recently forgot my passwords but the Microsoft site does not allow me to reset it myself, saying my organisation (RMIT) has not defined a password reset policy. I contacted the IT Department about this, but they told me they didn't know how to solve this for me. Does anyone else have the same issue?

 @Kate You can try to change your microsoft account by : setting-account-change microsoft account instead. If you have already sign in with an microsoft account, you may need to disconect it by: account management-remove your current device-follow the following instruction, and then,reset your computer and sign in with new microsoft account ( which is your student email)
