You will be asked to enter your 16 character licence key (this will have been sent to you by email). Add a suitable note (e.g. "Mrs Smith's laptop", "Desktop ref SBS292" and note the activation for your own records. As soon as each computer is activated, add a sticker (see suggested wording in green box below), then proceed with the creation of staff users.
