As I've said, I'm working from home so not using the PC which needs updated - I'm looking for advice on how best to approach the install given our hardware setup

Hi Saloni - are you able to advise?
Expert:  SaloniM replied 14 days ago.

You can configure both onsite and cloud 365 but you need to purchase a license from Microsoft.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I know - this has been approved but, before rolling the install out I'm looking for some advice. I don't need to think about Azure AD then? Even with no server I can install both desktop and cloud versions for 5 users effectively? Also, would you recommend removing Office 2013 before installing 365 (obvious question possibly ..)?
Expert:  SaloniM replied 14 days ago.

Yes, you can install both without worrying about servers. Microsoft 365 is a SAAS service of Microsoft. All the backend servers will be taken care by Microsoft itself. You can remove office 2013 if you want as you have office 365 which is the latest and most updated version of Microsoft.
