還在考慮轉用OFFICE 365 ?你的公司名稱很可能被已經人選用了

在過去幾星期我們已經成功為不少客戶轉用office 365.

其中有一個很特別的例子:這個中型企業客戶(因私隱問題不方便透露公司名稱)在香港大約有80名僱員的中型公司.他們考慮了一段時間轉用Office 365 而最終他們轉用了Office 365商務版,這包括了Exchange 電子郵件服務,還有所有Microsoft 軟件如PowerPiont ,Microsoft Word,Microsoft Excel …. ,One drive (雲端服務)還有Share point.

經過幾次會面和Office 365 簡短的示範,第一部就是要登記公司名稱,地址登記,聯絡人.但最重要的是你需要建立一個user ID作為一個公司的域名Domain name.而這個名稱作為日後的公司域名登記.例如:貴公司AccessoOrange,我們便登記為accessorange.onmicrosoft.com .

當我們嘗試輸入客戶公司名稱,出現了字句顯示有其他公司使用了:

(為尊重客戶私隱,我們假設了別的公司名字,例如圖下的公司名字為APPLE)

 

Warning Message: Your company name is already in use

我們的客戶會很焦慮的問:

「為什麼公司名稱已經有別人登記了,怎麼辨?」

「我們要怎樣做才可登記自己公司的名字」

「如果不能用公司名字怎樣辦?」

 

如果自己的公司名稱已經給其他公司取用了,你可以考慮以下方法解決:

 

以下是微軟對OFFICE 365 的對話回覆:

 


為什麼我需要’onmicrosoft.com’domain?

當你第一次登記服務Office 365 建立一個domain 給你, 如contoso.onmicrosoft.com,你的user ID就會做了domain name 好像 alan@contoso.onmicrosoft.com.

當你想使用專屬個人郵件是alan@contoso.com 可以選擇這個domain 或者使用alan@contoso..com (user ID和Domian )在office 365.

 

  • 當你建立一個DOMAIN 名稱往後不能轉用名稱. 例如 initial domain 你建立時選了fourthcoffee.onmicrosoft.com, 往後不能轉為 fabrikam.onmicrosoft.com. 如果你選擇用其他名稱 onmicrosoft.com domain, 你便要重新登記用戶名稱在 Office 365.
  • 您無法重新命名您的網址. 你的網址建於onmicrosoft.com domain name, 並且由於SharePoint Online的關係,您無法重新命名網站。
  • 你不可刪除 onmicrosoft domain. Office 365 需要domain name 作為訂閱. 但你可以選擇專屬自己個人的domain name.

Domain 真的這樣重要?

以上的對話看來 Domain 不是那麼重要.因為您可以稍後將Office365與您自己的公司domain相關連接起來,並且所有用戶都使用其username@yourdomainname.com作為登錄.

但是,Microsoft提到的第二點是您無法重新命名公司網站URL.如果您計劃使用SharePoint,共享點URL將鏈接到您的帳戶名稱,在這種情況下便會轉為[companyname] .sharepoint.com.因此,您的公司名稱很重要.

所以如果你要使用SharePoint,這可能是你一個要考慮的問題.

為什麼其他公司已經採用了自己公司的名稱?

過去我們曾經遇到無數的客戶都同樣遇到相同的問題. 可能在全球有其他公司採用同樣的公司名字(真的不巧跟客戶公司名一樣)他們很早便轉用OFFICE 365 ,這樣的話,公司便不能採用公司名稱作DOMAIN 了.

其中很可能的原因是公司的員工建立了一個測試帳戶,並且忘記了它.如果他/她仍然在為該公司工作,可以找回帳戶密碼,並繼續使用“舊”帳戶設置Office.

 

我們有可能拿回DOMAIN NAME

如果員工已經離開了公司,如何找回密碼可能是一件複雜的事情,因為您可能無法找回以前的記錄. 在這種情況下,可以與Microsoft聯繫,但是它們將驗證註冊人是否使用了同一公司名稱(比對公司電子郵件地址). 如果這些不一樣,您可能會發現自己處於困難的情況去證明帳戶ID屬於您的公司.

 

但萬一不能用回DOMAIN NAME怎樣做?

如果您無法證明擁有domain ,那麼您只剩下一個選擇,也就是使用另一個帳戶名稱,用一些接近原始名稱或相似.有些公司選擇加上有限公司或國家名稱.只要帳戶不被使用,你可以選擇作為domain name.

 

總結

隨著Office 365有更多客戶續漸登記愈來愈多,您所需的用戶名將被其他人註冊機會將增加. 因此,我們希望正在考慮使用Office 365的公司早些開始註冊一兩個賬戶。 至少通過這樣做,您可以確保您所需的公司ID和SharePoint名稱將成為您的公司重要ID.
