  1. Open the chrome browser on your phone
  2. Go to portal.microsoftonline.com
  3. Login with your N.D. University System credentials
    1. Approve the DUO prompt if you have MFA set up on your account
  4. Click on the Outlook icon in the upper left of the portal page to open your email
  5. Click on the three vertical dots in the upper right
  6. Click Add to Home screen
