The invitation from your company’s 2020 Office software Admin is the first step in becoming a Software Key user. Your company's internal Admin will need an email address to use when sending the invitation. If you already have a 2020 Cloud account, provide the email address used for that account to your Admin. If you use a different email address, then you will have two accounts, but only one will have access to your Software Key. This is why it is important that you use the email address provided by your administrator.
Once invited, it’s best to promptly accept the invitation by following the instructions included in the email. There will be subsequent emails which will also require specific actions.

Accepting the invitation
The invitation sent by the Admin contains a link. Clicking on this link accepts the invitation.
The link will lead to a page where the user will either create an account or sign in using an existing account. It is important that the email used at this stage is the same as that provided by your administrator and used for the invitation, be that as part of a new account, or as part of the sign-in for an existing account. If you already have a 2020 Cloud Account connected to the email address provided by your Admin, use the "Sign In to your 2020 Cloud Account" side of this screen, entering your existing email and password.
Entering all the information, including the same email address provided by the administrator, and then clicking the Register button will complete the creation of the account. A message will appear that mentions another email will arrive with instructions to confirm the account. If you already have a 2020 Cloud Account connected to the email address provided by your Admin, use the "Sign In to your 2020 Cloud Account" side of this screen, entering your existing email and password.
The account activation email will include a link like the one seen in the invitation email.
Clicking the link will open a web page which confirms the account is now active. Click on “View your Profile” and screen where you’ll sign in using your new account information.
Once signed in, you’ll see the invitation within your account to participate in your company's software keys.
Clicking in the Accept button will put you into Account Settings. At this point, the invitation to participate in the Pilot is complete and the 2020 Cloud account is ready.
