Today at 5 PM, the migration to Office 365 will start for University Advancement and Marketing, Student Affairs, Executive, and Administration and Finance divisions.
Here is some information to help you understand what is going to be happening.
Unfortunately, meetings will come across as appointments and will need some maintenance to be working as expected again. Several issues are occurring, but are fixable.
While we are in this change-over phase, if you are cancelling a meeting, changing a meeting, etc., email the attendees to let them know of the changes, just to be sure everyone is on the same page.
University Wide Notices
We are working on a solution to move the University Wide Notices to an Outlook-based delivery system and plan to have it functioning next week. In the meantime, Outlook users will need to use Lotus Notes to view the notices.
Your Outlook account is set up to automatically archive email older than two years old. So, if you look in your inbox or folders for something older than two years old, it will not be there. On the side bar that shows all your folders, scroll down to the bottom and you will see Online Archive with your account name after it. Just open that up and navigate to the correct folder.
Your Lotus Notes archives are still accessible via Lotus Notes. They will be migrated to your Outlook account in March. Look for more information about this in a later update.

Two additional on-site, instructor led Advanced classes have been added to the schedule
