After entering your account details, Office will be activated and you can start the trial version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other programs.

Office trial subscription renewal

The terms of use for the trial and trial versions of Microsoft Office state that 5 days before subscription expires, "Trial Renewal" will be available, which means that, in theory, these versions can be used during 60 days instead of 30.

I cannot say exactly how the renewal will occur: maybe suggested by the Office app itself, or maybe the respective item appears in the account settings at when you log in with the account created at your_company .onmicrosoft .com to activate the evidence office.
