UW Oshkosh campus migration to Office 365
In an effort to better collaborate with other UW System Campuses, and to address a few minor security issues, UW Oshkosh is migrating existing email and calendar from Google to Microsoft Office 365. Existing email, calendar, and contacts data from current Google accounts are being migrated to Office 365 accounts.
For more information about the project, check this page and look for email communications or feel free to contact us!
Non-user (departmental/shared) accounts will be migrated on July 15. Designated owners of these accounts will need to fill out a form to add access for other users. This form will be made available by July 5.
Early Adopters Migrated
Nearly 200 people have already been migrated to Office 365 as part of the Early Adopters migration. We’ve learned a whole lot thanks to these early adopters.
Over the past couple of months, this project team has refined aspects of the actual migration from Google. Perhaps the most significant change is that we will be migrating all accounts leveraging the knowledge and experience of our own team members instead of using an outside firm. This gives us more control over the process and schedule.
We’ve also identified several large groups that we plan to migrate together and have put together a tentative schedule for their migration. This schedule can be found below under “Next Steps.”
Email, Calendar, and Contacts. Once users are migrated to Office 365, they will log into office.com using their NetID and password. Once everyone is migrated to Office 365, users’ Google Accounts will also be accessed using their NetID and password.
Users will still have their campus-associated Google account. However, apps like Gmail and Google Calendar are “features” that will be turned off. Users will still have access to Google Drive and apps like Google Docs and Google Sheets.
The tentative schedule to migrate users to Office 365 is broken down into the following groups:
|Early Adopters||June 24, 2019
|All Faculty and Staff||July 8, 2019|
|All Students||July 22, 2019|
The initial scope of this project focused solely on migrating current Google users to Office 365. This team is now also overseeing the migration of Fox Cities and Fond du Lac campuses from their current Office 365 accounts on uwc.edu to our uwosh.edu domain.
This separate migration is tentatively scheduled for the week of July 22, 2019.
