Assist & Learn Through The Clouds

We have been inundated for years since the advent of the iPhone with the coolness of Siri. Sure, it is neat that you can ask your device a question and have it answer. But how many of you are familiar with Cortana? She started in 2014 as Microsoft’s answer to Siri, but with the shift to devices and services, Cortana has become MUCH more.
You have to enable Cortana to be able to look at your Office 365 environment to be your true personal assistant! Here is how you do that:
  1. Sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account.
  2. Go to the Office 365 admin center.
  3. Go to Settings > Services and add-ins > Cortana (in the old admin center, Service Settings > Cortana).
  4. Click Cortana to toggle Cortana on.
And that’s it! If you completely hate it, follow the same steps but click Cortana to turn her off. Have fun!
