Setting up FYI is simple. There’s nothing to install locally. All you need is:
- an Office 365 account;
- emails hosted through Microsoft Exchange; and
- an API key generated from Xero Practice Manager.
There are currently two Office 365 accounts which provide the minimum requirements needed to run FYI, these are outlined below:
|Office Requirements||O365 Business Premium||O365 Business Essentials|
|OneDrive (Adequate amount of space, up to 1TB)||Yes||Yes|
|Office Desktop (not required, but very useful)||Yes||No|

Which account suits you:
- If you are comfortable working from Office Online you can save yourself some money and run with the O365 Business Essentials account.
- If you want to maintain access to desktop applications and ensure full integration with FYI, then you will need the O365 Business Premium account.
Shared licenses will not work with FYI:
If you maintain a shared license version of the desktop applications, these will not integrate with FYI. The same applies if you have a single instance of the office applications accessible via a terminal server. This is because each user must be signed in to their individual instance of the office applications with their unique O365 account for FYI to function.
