    Does school have authority over personal laptop because of Office?


    I have a personal Microsoft account and a school account, the school account has full access to office 365, and my teachers have said that we are allowed to download office apps at home and use our school accounts to gain full access, however, after downloading office and logging in with my school account, when I go to Windows Update, it says at the top "*Some settings are managed by your organisation.". When I click on "View configured update policies" it then shows two policies about "Active hours" "Source: Administrator". I own this laptop personally and therefore my school should have no authority or management of it. Can the school manage my laptop or know what I am doing/ see what I have stored on my laptop in any way?

    :)

  2. Personal Laptops and school domains

    I have a personal laptop they i use solely for school and I'd like to print right from it. It's a bit more complicated as my school uses papercut to manage its printers. I don't know if a workgroup will work because i can't seem to get the paper cut client
    on my computer so joining the school domain might be the only other way. If there is another way then I'd appreciate the input. If not then I was wondering exactly what control the domain will have over my computer.

    My main concerns are whether the domain will be able to restrict me from accessing my local admin accounts to leave the domain whenever I want to. Also if they can't then can they moniter what I do on my local accounts? And finally, do they have the power
    to wipe my computer.

    Any help is appreciated,

    Thanks

  3. Connect to work or school

    My school provides an Office 365 subscription and I use my account on Office apps instead of my personal Microsoft account. If I add this school account to my personal Windows 10 Mobile device (Settings>Accounts>Access work or school), does it mean that
    my school's device management rules will apply instead of my personal settings? My device is not owned by the school and I don't know what are the settings they are using on devices.

    Does school have authority over personal laptop because of Office?

    The new Office 2016 is here Office


    Well, this one's a high school, so that may be the difference. She's been teaching for over 30 years so I'll ask her when she gets home; they can't use their cell phones at school. What's good for the student is good for the teacher. Does school have authority over personal laptop because of Office? :)

    When I looked at office.microsoft.com, only the perpetual version of Office 2016 was listed as being "Home and Student". Office 365 was listed merely as Home or Personal.
