Office 365 (SharePoint, Outlook Webmail, etc)

SharePoint and Outlook Webmail both reside within Office 365, which can be accessed using your role account (e.g. and its associated password. The login is split into two stages, the first will require you to enter user name in full which will identify to Microsoft which tennant you reside in (rafac).

SMS, like SharePoint requires you to login with your role account. If your role account is a generic account, then you will need to enter your personal username and password in addition to the role username and password. If you use a generic account and do not believe you have a personal username and password then you will need to contact the OC of your unit.

SMS Login Screen


Like SMS, Ultilearn shares the login screen design. Unlike SMS, Ultilearn does not use your role account, but uses your service number. Your account will be automatically created for you when you are registered on SMS (This is true for Staff and Cadets) and sent to the OC of the unit you are registered on. Once you successfully login with your new user name and password, you will be prompted to change your password to something more memorable (The above is also true if you do a password reset).

The 'Forgot your password?' link will take you to a page that looks very similar to the login page, but instead only asks you for you username. Once entered an email will be sent to the email address registered against your account (normally your OCs email address).
