Office 365 is a versatile collection of tools and service subscriptions that multiply overall productivity linked to software related services. It is an extensively used software. However, some users face issues when Account Notice appears in Office after switching Office 365 plans. In this article, we will discuss how to reactivate/troubleshoot Office 365 account notice.
This kind of ‘Account Notice’ appears when users installed Office on their system as part of Office 365 for a business subscription but the company moves to another business subscription plan.
In a situation that is mentioned above, users will have to install an Office version, which comes with the new subscription plan. But if users delay the changing of the plan or the update then, they encounter various account notices. Some of these have been highlighted below in form of images.
Users can perform either of the two operations to resolve/stop account notice in Office 365, which are listed below.
Methodologies For Different Office Versions – Depending upon the type of version of Office a user has, Office 365 Subscription plans differ. Sometimes it comes with Office 2013, other times with office 2016, and sometimes with both. Now one by one we will cover all the methods to resolve the account notices on different versions of Office.
NOTE: If an Office 2016 user gets a ‘Sign-In’ option instead of ‘Update’ option in Account Notice dialog box then, follow the below procedure for Office 2013.
Follow these simple steps to resolve this issue:
Open Word. Go to ‘File’ Menu and click on ‘Account’ then, see the version number just under Office Updates.
Please note these version numbers for various Office:
Office, after a certain interval, checks whether user’s Office installation is rightly licensed or not. This procedure is known as Activation.
Now if the activation is approved successfully then, users can go on to use Office features. But, in case this activation fails then, Office displays this common Unlicensed Product Error in Office 365.
Another reason can be when users do not install the version, which comes with the new Office 365 for a business plan. This is when this ‘Unlicensed Product’ will appear on the title bar of user’s screen. An image is shown below to let users know how this error appears on the title bar.
Later on even the functionality mode will be reduced in Office and most of the buttons and features will also get disabled.
To prevent this from happening, install the new version as soon as possible to avoid these ‘Unlicensed Product Errors’ from appearing again.
