    Home Use Program SA Benefit

    Sorry Guys, I am being thick on a Friday night, and I am new to this Schools Agreement thing!

    I've just logged on for the first time and was poking around - I expected to see the SA Benefit for the Home Use Program, as I would like to use that instead of the 'interesting' Work at Home agreement for Staff.

    When I select it, all I get is 'No data to display'

    Do I have to activate it, is it something that I should have paid an additional fee for?

    I have been googling for an hour, and all Microsoft seem to have is the word 'Yes' next to SA Benefits on the UK schools agreement description.

    You have to go into Software Assurance Benifits stuff and activate it, they then ask you to confirm your domain that people will use (as its tagged to that) and confirm the setup by email you a pass key that you need to give out. Took a few hrs to get mine all setup but it works well

    Are you setup as the full rights holder for the agreement, you can have an account allocated for keys and downloads and not have the rights allocated from your provider to activate/view SA benifits. Is there someone else who also has access to the agreement that may have these permissions set on their account?

  5. Thanks to SYNACK from:

    Thanks Synack, I was the administrator, but reassigning the privaledges that I already had seemed to work - Plus I think it may well have been something to do with the site, as I have only just got my welcome email (I had the conformation/registration ones yesterday afternoon).

    Couple of other things worth doing, there is access to the Microsoft e-learning you can enable, which is pretty good and also it's worth signing up to the MSDN Academic Alliance which is also free if you have a schools agreement, but if the promotion code isn't in your welcome letter it's a painful process getting one as you have to go back to the company you bought the school agreement from.
