Now you need to save it somewhere – but your personal OneDrive probably isn't the most appropriate place. The first thing you need to do is kick-off the 'Add account' workflow from within the application. While application experiences will differ, most (like Word in this case) will have a Sign-in button or an 'Add account' button in the application settings. Click on 'Work or school account' to add an Azure AD account to the device.
After successfully authenticating with your work credentials, the MDM terms prescribed by your company may appear and you will have the opportunity to accept them for your device.
It's that simple! The device is now registered in Azure AD and enrolled in MDM. The account is ready to use for access to corporate resources like your company's OneDrive for Business and you won't have to go through the experience of adding the account or enrolling in MDM again because other authorized applications will also be able to use the account.
Select the account type (in this case a personal Microsoft account) and Sign in.
That's it! Your personal inbox will now start syncing to your corp-owned device. You can also install other consumer applications from the Windows store and use them with this account without being prompted to re-enter your credentials.
Thanks for your time and interest,
