Office 365

About Microsoft Office 365
Office 365 is a subscription service that features Microsoft Access, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word. Using these powerful programs, you can capture your ideas however you work best—using a keyboard, pen, or touchscreen. Every Quantum View comes with a one year subscription to Microsoft Office 365.

Where can I find my Office 365  key?
The location of your office key is contingent on the type of Quantum View you received. There are two types of Quantum View tablets that you can potentially receive.

Type 1: Quantum View tablets that have the last four digits of the serial number that are under 1000. For example, a Quantum View tablet that has the last four digits such as “0467” “0143” or “0915” would be a type 1 Quantum View.  A type 1 Quantum View comes with an orange Microsoft Activation Card containing the unique Microsoft Office 365 product key.

Type 2: Quantum View tablets that have the last four digits of the serial number over 1000. For example, a Quantum View tablet that has the last four digits of the serial number such as “1097” “1456” or “1798” would be a type 2 Quantum View.  Type 2 Quantum View tablets have the Microsoft Office key embedded into the tablet. In order to use that code, simply activate Microsoft Office with the email address registered to your Quantum View tablet.
