Microsoft Loop is a transformative co-creation experience that brings together teams, content and tasks across your tools and devices. Loop combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across applications — enabling teams to think, plan, and create together.
To get started, go to the Loop home page or check out the instructions on how to download the Loop mobile app for Android and iOS. If you’re an IT admin, check out instructions to enable Loop for your organization.
The three elements of Loop
Loop components are portable pieces of content that stay in sync across all the places they are shared. Components allow you to collaborate in the flow of work – on a Loop page or in a chat, email, meeting, or document. They can be lists, tables, notes, and more - you’re always working with the latest information in your preferred app, like Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Word, Whiteboard, and the Loop app.
Loop pages are flexible canvases in the Loop app where you can bring together people and all your components, links, tasks, and data. Loop pages can start small and continue to grow to match the size of your ideas. Loop pages can be shared across M365 apps as a link or as an embedded Loop component.
Loop workspaces are shared spaces that allow you and your team to see and group everything important to your project, making it easy for you to catch up on what everyone is working on and track progress toward shared goals.

Possible solutions (using Loop with your Microsoft Account):
You need to sign into outlook.com with your Microsoft Account. Once you've signed in one time, everything that Loop needs from Outlook can be set up the next time you try to use Loop.
Possible solutions (using Loop with your Organization ID):
You need to have an Exchange Online mailbox associated with your Organization ID. Once you've been provisioned an Exchange Online mailbox, and you've signed into it one time, everything that Loop needs from Exchange Online can be set up the next time you try to use Loop. Work with your Microsoft 365 administrator or your help desk to ensure you have an active Exchange Online mailbox.
You need to have at least read access to your organization's SharePoint Online root site. We are working on a long-term solution to not require this. Until then, work with your Microsoft 365 administrator or your help desk to ensure you have a minimum of read access to the root site.
