Office 365 users may be able to tell instantly that they’re using it. If you see Office 365 written in the site header ribbon – surprise! – your organization has Office 365 deployed and you are using SharePoint Online.

Office 365

Sometimes companies replace the Office 365 title with their own logo, so if that's the case with you, keep reading.

When you click the app launcher at the top left hand of your screen, if you get a menu with Office 365 at the top, you're likely on SharePoint Online.

You're using Office 365

Another giveaway that you're using SharePoint Online is that your SharePoint sites are using the Modern appearance, which looks like this:

Modern SharePoint - Card View - EHS Management

However, SharePoint 2019 on-premise sites can also use Modern, so you can double check by going to Subscriptions:

  1. Click on your profile picture at the top right hand corner
  2. Click My Account
  3. Navigate to Subscriptions on the left hand side menu
  4. Search the page for 'SharePoint' (CTRL+F and enter SharePoint into the popup search bar)
