Deploying apps with Microsoft Intune

Microsoft Intune can be used to deploy apps such as Immersive Reader and Microsoft Translator to all the devices connected in the same groups.

  1. Go to the Intune for Education portal and log in with your account.
  2. Select the Apps page.
  3. Find the app you're looking for in the included list (if it's not there, you can select Add app and download it from the Microsoft Store).
  4. Selecting your app will show you if it has been deployed to any of the groups that have been set up. From the Groups page you can select Change group assignment and choose which groups you want to deploy the app(s) to.

How to show/hide the Ease of access settings for text in Windows 10

The Ease of access settings in Windows 10 are very useful accessibility tools, but having those options could be a bit much for everyone in a group to have in their device. With the following instructions you can chose to hide or show the Ease of access settings on users' devices.

  1. Go to the Intune for Education portal and login with your account.
  2. Select the Groups page and then select your desired group.
  3. Select Settings and under the User access and device settings section you will find the toggle to set Ease of access to Blocked or Not blocked.
  4. Select Save after making your selection.

How to change your Office 365 account from monthly, semi-annual, or yearly

Depending on how you plan to do billing, you can have Office 365 accounts that are set to renew monthly, semi-annually, or yearly.

  1. Sign-in to your services and subscriptions with your Microsoft account.
  2. Find the subscription in the list, then select Change how you pay. >Note: If you don't see Change how you pay, it could be because auto-renew is not turned on. You won't be able to change how you pay if auto-renew is off because the subscription has already been paid and will end when its duration expires.
  3. Choose a new way to pay from the list or select Add a new way to pay and follow the instructions.
