Office 365 (Outlook on the web) - Manage/Bypass Account Login Landing Page Configuration

When logging into your UW-Madison Office 365 account, you have the ability to manage the login page - or bypass it all together.

Important: If you decide to bypass the login landing page, you will not see any communications or alerts that have been placed on the landing page.

The landing page will contain the account you are logged in with (via NetID login) and any other accounts it is linked to.

Because we have modified the login process to include UW-Madison Office 365 landing page, the selected application within the "Start Page" (within Settings), the default landing application will always be Outlook (email). You can select the application (email, calendar, people, or task) you want to go to by selecting it from the landing page, or you can bypass the landing page altogether by using the links below (bookmark them for future use):
