Ads: With the Basic subscription you get a free Web site, 25 e-mail
addresses — and lots of ads. Because they tend to be in bright colors
and dance around a lot on your screen, they’re pretty hard to miss. With
Essentials and Premium accounts, you only have to deal with one small
ad in the lower-right corner.
E-mail: Here’s where you find the tools you need to access your e-mail
Inbox, create a calendar, view your contacts, and invite other users to
join the party.
Website: Not surprisingly, this area sets you on your way to creating —
and maintaining — your Web site.
Adding Office Live Users
Remember when you were a kid and got that great new bicycle for your
birthday? You probably couldn’t wait to show it off to your friends. The same thing
holds true with Office Live. You signed up, logged in, and explored the ins and
outs a bit. Now you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work — or
maybe get a few of your employees to work.
The first thing you’ll need to do is to set up additional users to access your
Office Live account.
Being the subscription owner gives you some additional perks — besides
seeing a service charge on your credit-card statement each month if you
subscribe to a fee-based account. You’re the one who gets to decide who else can
access your site. In addition, you are the person who can grant those users
permission to perform various tasks by assigning them roles.
Adding a user to a Basics account
To add a new user to an Office Live Basics account, follow these steps:
1. Click Administration on the Navigation bar and then click Users &
Permissions in the Navigation bar on the Administration page.
The Permissions page appears.
2. Click the Add User icon.
The Add User page opens, as shown in Figure 3-7.
