Can I download and install the full office suite on my personal or NHTV devices ?

On the Office365 page there is a button to download and install the latest Office suite on 5 devices. This function is standard and unfortunately cannot be disabled at this moment.

To prevent any problems:
1. These licenses are not for personal use! Please do not install them on personal devices.
If you would like a version of the Office suite for personal use it is possible to order a version at Surfspot for a discount price (€ 10,75). You can find Surfspot on the employee portal.

2. Installing this office version on an NHTV device is possible but is not advised. There is no NHTV support available for newer versions of the office suite and it may result in compatibility issues with the current version (Office 2010).

How can I get access to the IT Academy ?

On the MyPortal there is a tile to access the IT Academy.

The employee portal is too large or too small for my screen, what can I do?

The display of the portal depends on the resolution and size of your screen. It could result in not readable text or the need to scroll.
This can easily be solved by zooming in or out for the size you prefer.

Within the employee portal (using internet explorer) you can:
Zoom in by pressing and holding the control button and then press the plus button (ctrl +) .
Zoom out by pressing and holding the control button and then press the minus button (ctrl -) .
