Sign in to Office 365 Widget and access your OneDrive

The Office 365 widget allows you to log into your Office 365 account by entering your email credentials. When you log in, the widget displays a list of your emails, calendar events, and OneDrive documents you have saved. Clicking on an item in the widget takes you directly to your email, calendar, or OneDrive, depending on which tab you’re on. Navigating to an individual email, calendar event, or OneDrive document within the widget is currently not supported.

There will be an additional sign on authentication required in D2L Brightspace to get to Office365. The authenticated sign on will last for up to 30 days due to security requirements. After the 30 days, you will need to re-authenticate to Office365.
