    Splitting a shared account - game progress and office 365


    Hi

    I have a microsoft account which my son has been using for years to play his games on his xbox. I use the account for Office 365 and as my windows account.

    Ideally we would have separate accounts ... in an ideal world we would create a new account for him and transfer all his game progress over ... but I think that isn't possible or very difficult to do?

    So is it possible for him to keep the account, me to create a new account and then move the Office 365 subscription over to my account? I use OneDrive significantly but presumably I could just move that over too?

    Any thoughts/help/advice gratefully received.

    Thanks

    :)

    Hey McLean22, Looks like unfortunately you
    cannot transfer the 365
    account. The best thing to do is cancel the 365 subscription you have on the current account, create a new Microsoft account for yourself and re-subscribe from that account. You might, and I say only might, be able to get a refund
    from your current account to put toward a new account. Here are some
    results from a office 365 support
    page.

    Home Console/Game Sharing expansion needed

    I agree that there is room for improvement in the current family sharing system. My Idea would be a true "Home" sharing setup, where all Xboxes on the same home network could share 1 gold account. They could even limit that to maybe 1 gold account can
    share with up to 4 Xboxes on the same local network. That would solve most family account issues, and still be controlled enough to limit the abuse of the program.

    The other way they could handle it would be similar to how Microsoft runs Office 365. With my 365 account I can have up to 5 running instances of Office at once, and I can designate family members to share my 365 account with. If Live Gold used that same
    system, then you could add your family to the account the same way. 365 is $99 a year, where Live Gold is $60, so maybe up the "family shared" version of Live Gold to $99 a year, where a single use account is still $60?

    I would also like a Microsoft "Super" account that would give me Office 365, Xbox Gamepass, and Live Gold under one Subscription...

    Its friday and oh look no friends list

    you have to think, x1 uses the cloud, that is also being used by thousands of businesses for office 365 including outlook and lync services 300.000 servers for live yes but shared resources with the rest of the business world, and they are currently rolling
    out alot of updates for office 365.
