Back in 2013 I believe it was... Microsoft decided it would be a good idea to force users to register office with an email address and then have you login to that account and install office. They didn't think that one out too well. So a company buys a copy of office and registers it to Bob Murphy's email. Bob quits and they hire Sue and now have to remember that Sue's office is registered under Bob's email address. Yet aother well though out Microsoft idea.
So I started one generic email address for each customer and registering all their copies of all Office under that one email address. Then started a spreadsheet on what product key I installed on what computer. That worked great until a couple of weeks ago when the boneheads at Microsoft decided not to use product keys and simply display the date you purchased the Office. I can't say enough bad about these idiots at Microsoft.
So now you have to record the date you purchased it and cannot purchase more than one copy on any given day. How are others coping with the stupidity from Microsoft?
