How do externals with a limited associate account access SharePoint?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff and associate staff

Information Services are aware that there is an issue with SharePoint access for externals with a Limited Associate Account, those who have an Edinburgh Napier staff ID, but not an Edinburgh Napier email address.   This includes external examiners and overseas associate staff.  

As a workaround, associate staff members can access Office 365 or SharePoint by entering an email address in the following format:

[Staff ID Number]@livenapierac.onmicrosoft.com

  • If they enter this email address after following a link to a specific site, list or document that has been shared with them then they will get access.
  • If they go straight to https://www.office.com/ or any Office 365 access page then they will still get access but will see a message similar to the message below as they have no licences applied.

If you require any further information please contact the IS Service Desk in the first instance.
