How to activate MetaShare

Activating MetaShare does not take more than a few minutes.

The prerequisite for activating MetaShare is that you have access to Microsoft Office 365. For a list of all supported Microsoft Office 365 subscriptions, see MetaShare Service Description. If you are unsure which subscription you have, click here and if you want to get a free Office 365 trial account, click here.

When you activate MetaShare:

  • You must login with an Office 365 account with the Global Administrator role. It must not be a guest account.
  • If you don’t have access to such an account, someone else, with this permission, must assist in activating MetaShare for you.
  • Information about the accounts and permissions that are required for activation, configuration and administration of MetaShare can be found here.

If you do not yet have contact with anyone from the MetaShare team, please fill in the fields on one of these forms and, within short, someone from the MetaShare team will supply you with a link to activate MetaShare and guide you through the MetaShare activation and configuration process:
