Office 365 for Mac - How to Set Up Your Outlook Client Account

The first time you open the Microsoft Outlook 365 client on your Mac, you will need to configure it. Okta multi-factor authentication (MFA) is required for access to Outlook.

A window prompting you to begin the setup will be displayed. Select Add Email Account.

A window may appear that says, Office is offline. Click Go Online.

At the next window, click Activate.

At the next window, click Sign In.

A window prompting you to enter your email will be displayed. Enter your full Parkland email address and select Next.

A Parkland login prompt will be displayed. Enter your ParklandOne username and password and select Sign in.

Next, you will need to authenticate with Okta. The prompt will look similar to this but differs depending on what factor you have selected. Once you have sent the push (or opted to receive a code via text or voice call), you will be able to enter the code (if applicable) and complete the Outlook client setup. 

Once Outlook has finished adding your account, a window will be displayed informing you of the completion of this process. Click Start Using Outlook
