Sign Out / Log Off Outlook

Because of the integration of Active Directory with Office 365, any computer that you sign into using your LDSB-ID Active Directory credentials will automatically sign into your office 365 Outlook account. So, even if you sign out of Office 365 in a browser and close the browser or close the Outlook Desktop App, your Outlook email will still be accessible.

What this means is that if you want students to use your classroom computer, you must Log off from the computer first and let the student log in using their own Active Directory credentials. Users should always log off a computer if it is to be left unattended. Computers that may be accessed by multiple staff should be treated like a public access computer in a library – always log off when not in use. This will ensure that your email and other resources, such as OneDrive files, remain secure.

When you log off , all of the programs you were using are closed, but the computer is not turned off. After you log off, another user can log on without needing to restart the computer. In addition, you don't need to worry about losing your information if another user turns off the computer.
