Office web apps are a handy feature to take advantage of in a pinch. In many cases they can do the majority of the work that the full desktop applications can. In the case of an Office program having an issue, you can take advantage of the web version of Office to get you by.

Accessing Office web apps is very simple. From your Okta home page, simply select the Office 365 Portal button and it will take you to where you can find all of your apps! On the left side you can find the logo for each of the most commonly used apps, including Outlook, Word, and Excel.
