Configure AD FS for Office 365 Step by Step Guide

Follow this procedure to set up the first federation server for Office 365 in a new federation server farm:
Note: you will need to use a Domain Admin account to setup the AD FS server

Open AD FS 2.0 Management snap-in from Start -> Administrative Tools -> AD FS 2.0 Management
On the Overview page, click AD FS 2.0 Federation Server Configuration Wizard.
On the Welcome page, ensure that Create a new Federation Service is selected, and then click the Next button
On the Select Stand-Alone or Farm Deployment page, select New federation server farm, and click the Next buttion
On the Specify the Federation Service Name page, ensure that the SSL certificate that is picked up by the wizard is the one that you have installed in the previous step on your IIS. If this is not the one, select the appropriate certificate from the SSL certificate drop-down list, and then click the Next button
On the Specify a Service Account page, click Browse button, locate the domain account that will be used as the service account for federation server farm and click OK
Type the password for the service account and click Next
On the Ready to Apply Settings page click Next
Once the configuration is done, on the Configuration Results page, review the results and click Close
Now that the AD FS is configured on your server you need to verify that the federation server is operational.
To verify that the federation server is operational:

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.
In the Event Viewer navigate to Applications and Services Logs -> AD FS 2.0 -> Admin
Look for event ID 100 which indicates that the federation server is configured properly
Now that you have configured your AD FS, the next step for Single Sign-on is to install and configure the Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows PowerShell.
