Subject: Office 365 and Your Version of the Outlook Software

Hello U of G Outlook Desktop User,

CCS (Computing and Communications Services at U of G) wants to inform you that Microsoft is making a change that will impact the ability of certain versions of the Outlook Desktop Client to work with Office 365. This impacts versions of Outlook from 2007 to 2016, and CCS has determined that there are approximately 100 users on campus who will be impacted by this change.

CCS has determined that one of your devices will be impacted. 

Username:    userID@uoguelph.ca

Version:          Outlook Year – Build #

Please note that this does not mean that your copy of the Outlook Desktop Client will stop working. It just means that resolving any future problems will require you to update Outlook. 

The best approach is to update Outlook before October 31st. You can do this yourself by following these steps that can be accessed via the U of G website:

  • Log in to the web version of Gryph Mail (mail.uoguelph.ca). If you are unfamiliar, this is can be accessed through the main University of Guelph web page (uoguelph.ca), selecting the “STUDENTS, FACULTY, STAFF LOGIN” menu item and logging in with your U of G credentials. Then select the GryphMail link under “Tools”.
  • Click on 'Office 365' in the web page header as shown to get to the Office 365 portal page if you are not already there.
  • Find the link for installing Office 365.

  • Click on this link and proceed as directed. This will load the latest version of Microsoft Office 2016, including Word, Excel and Outlook.

Your password will NOT be required for this change to take place. Your account is not going to be deleted if you do not take action. Email will continue to be accessible through a web browser if Outlook stops working.

If you are not comfortable doing this yourself or if you have any questions, please contact the CCS Help Centre at 519-824-4120 x58888, email: 58888help@uoguelph.ca for assistance.

If you are staff or faculty, you can contact your departmental IT staff.

Undergraduate Migration to Office 365

Hello U of G Undergraduate Students,

The Office 365 migration is complete!

Accessing Your Gryph Mail Through a Web Browser:

Each time you log in to Gryph Mail, you will be presented with a choice of “Gryph Mail – Office 365” or “Legacy Gryph Mail – Google". Office 365 should be your primary choice going forward. You will have limited access your legacy Gryph Mail account (Google) for a period of time, as this can be valuable for validating your migration. However, you will not be receiving any new email in this account.

Accessing Your Gryph Mail from a Mobile Device:

The Outlook Mobile App can be downloaded by following these instructions. This is the preferred (and CCS-supported) option for accessing Gryph Mail on your mobile device and will provide the most seamless Office 365 experience. However, you can also use the native mail app on your device.

Where Are My Calendar, Contacts, Google Drive and iOS Notes files?

Only your email was migrated as part of this migration. If you regularly use your Gryph Mail Calendar, Contacts, Google Drive files or iOS Notes App, you will need to migrate those to Office 365. Our website includes step-by-step instructions on these tasks. The timing is up to you, but consider migrating these items before your return this fall – less stress during those busy first weeks.

Post-Migration Office 365 Support: 

  • The Office 365 website: This is a great resource, with information on features, device configuration, and support.  This includes a Frequently Asked Migration Questions section that may address common concerns.
  • CCS Help Centre: The CCS Help Centre can be reached at 519-824-4120 x 58888 or 58888help@uoguelph.ca, and walk-up help is available at the CCS IT Help Desk on the first floor of the library.

  • Office 365 Information and Support Kiosks: For summer students currently on campus, please visit the IT Help Desk in the library for support. In September, when most students return to campus, we will have kiosks in various buildings to answer questions and provide support for configuring devices, etc.

  • Weekly Support Emails: The Office 365 Project Team will be sending weekly emails with useful tips and tricks. 

  • Microsoft Website: Microsoft product information is easily searchable online, so many of your questions can be answered by a quick Google search. 

Thank you!

Undergraduate Migration to Office 365

Hello U of G Undergraduate Students,

We are ready to go! Your email will be migrated this weekend. You will be using your Office 365 Gryph Mail account going forward. Please read the information below to stay informed.

This weekend:

To reduce the risk of error and corruption, please log out of your Gryph Mail by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 16. We anticipate starting the migration on Friday at 5:00 p.m. If you need to view email over the weekend, please be sure to check both Gryph Mail accounts - Office 365 and Google/Gmail - as different mail might appear in either account. However, once the migration is complete, all your email will be in Office 365.

Accessing Gryph Mail after the Migration:

Following the migration, you can log into Gryph Mail as you always have (https://mail.uoguelph.ca). You will be presented with a choice of “Gryph Mail – Office 365” or “Legacy Gryph Mail – Google". You will have limited access your legacy Gryph Mail account (Google) for a period of time, as this can be valuable for validating your migration. However, new email will no longer be received at this account.

What you need to do:

  • Your email will be migrated for you, however, if you regularly use your Gryph Mail Calendar, Contacts, Notes, or Google Drive files, you will need to migrate those to Office 365. Our website includes step-by-step instructions on these tasks. The timing is up to you, but consider migrating these items before your return this fall – less stress during those busy first weeks.

Undergraduate Migration to Office 365

Hello Office 365 user,

You are receiving this email because you have previously signed up for an Office 365 account using your @mail.uoguelph.ca email address. You will no longer be able to access Office 365 using this account after the Gryph Mail Office 365 migration, taking place June 17/18, 2017. This is because you will have a new U of G Office 365 account linked to your new email address (@uoguelph.ca).

If you have files saved in OneDrive under this account, you have already received a notice to back up your OneDrive files in preparation for migration. Your OneDrive files will not be migrated to your new Office 365 account and it is your responsibility to back up your data. Please ensure that this is complete by June 17th, 2017.

https://www.uoguelph.ca/ccs/office365/onedrive-backup

It is also important to note that the way you log in to Office 365 (to activate and use Microsoft Office) will change after the migration. After June 18, 2017, you will need to log in to Office 365 by entering your full @uoguelph.ca email address, which will redirect you to Single Sign-On where you can enter your Central Login ID and password. You will no longer be able to log in to Office 365 using your @mail.uoguelph.ca email address.

Subject: The Office 365 migration is complete! Here is what you need to know

Welcome to Office 365. The migration is complete!

Hello Gryph Mail users,  
 
The day is finally here! Here is what you need to know:  
 
Accessing your email through a web browser: 
To log in to Office 365, log into your email as per your usual method (mail.uoguelph.ca). This will take you to the regular Single Sign On page, which will now direct you to Office 365. When you log in, you will be using the Outlook Web App. This is a very intuitive email and calendaring system, and you will likely be able to use it competently right away. Learn how to log in and get started with Office 365 by watching this short video.    
 
Please note that until December 31, 2016, when you sign on, you will also be given the option to access Zimbra (the previous Gryph Mail system). This can be valuable for validating your migration, but please understand that you will not be able to send or receive from within Zimbra.  
 
Accessing your email from a mobile device: 
If you currently have your Gryph Mail set up on your phone, you will need to reconfigure it to point to Office 365. Instructions on how to do this for different devices can be found on the Mobile Device Email Configuration page of the Office 365 website. To avoid potential problems, we strongly recommend that you first remove your Zimbra account before adding your Office 365 account.
 
Accessing your email from a desktop email client: 
Similarly, if you currently use a desktop email client (Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, etc.), these will also need to be reconfigured to point to your Office 365 email/calendar. Instructions can be found on the Desktop Email Client Configuration page.  We strongly recommend using Outlook as your desktop client, as it is the only CCS-supported mail client. 
 
Set up your Office 365 account and reconfigure any items that were not migrated:  
Set yourself up for success. Set aside some time this week to go through the post-migration set-up instructions. You can also visit our post-migration YouTube play list, where you will find simple 30-second videos to walk you through key post-migration steps.  
 
Can't find what you are looking for? 
First, ensure that you have completed the steps in the pre- and post-migration checklists.  
 
Second, double check the list of items that were (or were not) migrated.  There is a list of Frequently Asked Migration Questions, listing the top questions that you may have about this weekend's migration.
 
Still have questions about the migration? Contact the CCS  Help Centre for support (519-824-4120 x 58888 or 58888help@uoguelph.ca). 
 
Post-migration support and training:  
As you can imagine with any migration of this magnitude, some issues can happen. We have lots of support for you!

  • The Office 365 website (uoguelph.ca/office365) is a great resource, with information on features, benefits, device configuration, desktop client set up, training and support.
  • Your local IT administrator/Managed Desktop team is prepared to provide Office 365 support following the migration.
  • We will have Office 365 Information and Support Kiosks in various buildings on campus (UC, Library, MacKinnon, etc.) during the entire week following the migration. Get help configuring devices and more. Check the kiosk schedule here (under In-Person Support). 
  • The Office 365 Project Team will be sending weekly emails with Office 365 tips and tricks.
  • Microsoft product information is easily searchable online, so many of your questions can be answered by a quick Google search.
  • The CCS Help Centre can be reached at 519-824-4120 x 58888 or 58888help@uoguelph.ca.  
  • Want training? We've got lots.  

We look forward to helping you through this change!

Gryph Mail Made Better

Hello Gryph Mail users,
  
We are ready to go! Your email and calendars will be migrated this weekend. When you log in to your email on Monday morning, you will be using Microsoft Office 365!
  
Migration Information  
To reduce the risk of error and corruption, please log out of your Gryph Mail before you leave for the weekend. We anticipate starting the migration Friday, July 22 at 6:00 pm.   
 
On Monday morning, you can log into Gryph Mail as you always have (mail.uoguelph.ca). You will go to the regular Single Sign On page that you are used to. Once you enter your userID and password, you will be redirected to Office 365.  
 
Please note that until December 31, 2016, when you sign on, you will also be given the option to access Zimbra (the current Gryph Mail system). This can be valuable for validating your migration.  This will be read-only access. 
 
Pre-Migration and Post-Migration Checklists  
To ensure a smooth transition, we ask that you check the pre- and post-migration checklists to record any information of yours that will NOT be migrated (signatures, filters, etc.). You can check this on the Office 365 website or use the attached double-sided checklist. It might be a good idea to set aside time immediately following the migration to set up your Office 365 email account using these checklists.  
 
Post-Migration 365 Support  

  • The Office 365 website (uoguelph.ca/office365) is a great resource, with information on features, benefits, device configuration, desktop client set up, training and support.  
  • Your local IT administrator/Managed Desktop team is prepared to provide Office 365 support following the migration.  
  • We will have Office 365 Information and Support Kiosks in various buildings on campus (UC, Library, MacKinnon and others) during the entire week following the migration. Get help configuring devices and more. See the kiosk schedule here (under “In Person Support”).

  • The CCS Help Centre can be reached at 519-824-4120 x 58888 or 58888help@uoguelph.ca.  

 
We will be in touch again on Monday to provide day-one instructions.

Hello Gryph Mail users,

Our email migration date is fast approaching!

U of G staff, faculty, graduate students and anyone with an @uoguelph.ca email address will be migrated to Office 365 over the July 23/24 weekend. When you log in to email on Monday July 25, you will automatically be using Office 365! Your email, folders, contacts and calendars will have been migrated for you.

To help ease any concerns you may have, we have a robust schedule of information sessions in advance of the migration weekend:

  • Large-group information sessions
  • Information webinars
  • Hands-on, first-look information sessions
  • On-line information 

Using email and calendars on Office 365 is very intuitive and straightforward. To get the most out of this innovative platform, we strongly recommend attending at least one information session. We will also have ample hands-on training available following the migration.

To register for information and training sessions, visit the training section of our newly created Office 365 website

Gryph Mail Made Better

Hello Gryph Mail users,

Your Gryph Mail will be migrated to Office 365 by the end of July. There are a few quick steps that you can take today to make sure all of your information is accessible after the migration to Office 365 – especially if you are leaving for all or part of the summer.

Please visit the pre-migration information on the CCS Office 365 website to get instructions on how to save the following information that will NOT be migrated:

  • Any FILTERS you have created
  • All of your email SIGNATURES
  • Details of your FOLDER RETENTION PROPERTIES (rules you have set for deleting folder items)
  • Saved SEARCHES
  • FORWARDS to other email addresses

If these are features you currently use and would like to leverage in Office 365, please follow these steps to save them now - it should only take a few minutes.

If you have any questions at any time or require assistance, please contact us at office365@uoguelph.ca. We are happy to help.

Your email, calendar, contacts, tasks and resources will be migrated for you; however some elements such as filters, signatures and saved searches will NOT be migrated. Please review the pre-migration information on our Office 365 Project Page (see below), especially if you are leaving campus for all or part of the summer, so that you can prepare for the migration and know what you will need to manually configure in Office 365 following the migration.

We will keep you informed about this exciting project as it progresses, so be sure to watch for emails from office365@uoguelph.ca! And if you have any questions, please contact us at office365@uoguelph.ca - we are eager to help.

Subject: Transition to Office 365

Gryph Mail Users,

We have exciting news about our campus email and calendaring platform!

Over the past year, CCS pursued a substantial discovery process to understand the email, calendaring and collaboration requirements of staff, faculty and graduate students. We received considerable feedback regarding the current tool (Zimbra, a.k.a. Gryph Mail, which has been in use since 2008) along with significant insight into replacement preferences.

After careful consideration and research, we are pleased to announce that the new solution for U of G faculty, staff and graduate students will be Microsoft Office 365. Office 365 addresses many of the important criteria identified by our campus community: ease of use; reliable integration with mobile devices; enhanced security; hosting in a Canadian data centre; unlimited storage; and enhanced collaborative and document sharing capabilities.

Email and calendaring will be the initial focus of the Office 365 implementation, with completion targeted by the end of July 2016. Our campus project will be guided by a steering committee with representation from all stakeholder groups, who will oversee the communication plan to keep you informed throughout the next few months. 

Planning is underway and decisions are being made about the logistics of migrating email and calendar items, the timing and type of support and training we will deliver, when undergraduate students may also be migrated to Office 365, and which additional Office 365 features (e.g., One Drive, SharePoint, Skype, etc.) will be made available, and when.

Details about these important decisions and other aspects of this project will be forthcoming in the next few weeks and will be communicated via email and on our project page at https://www.uoguelph.ca/ccs/projects/office365.

I hope that you will join me in looking forward to Office 365 as our new campus email and calendaring solution with all of the significant benefits it will offer us. If you have questions or comments, please contact the CCS implementation team at Office365@uoguelph.ca.

A reminder that the shut-down date for Zimbra is fast approaching.

On April 30, 2017, our Zimbra license will expire and all access to Zimbra will be turned off.

Please ensure you have all necessary information or data from your Zimbra account and can access it in your Office 365 email account.

When you sign in to your Gryph Mail after April 30, the choice to view your Zimbra inbox will no longer be available. The majority of users will be automatically directed to their inbox.

Gryph Mail Made Better

Hello University of Guelph-Humber Gryph Mail users,  
 
We are ready to go!  
 
Your email and calendars will be migrated this weekend. When you log in to your email on Monday morning, you will be using Microsoft Office 365!  
 
Migration Information  
To reduce the risk of error and corruption, please log out of your Gryph Mail before you leave for the weekend. We anticipate starting the migration Friday July 8 at 6:00 pm.  
 
On Monday morning, you can log into Gryph Mail as you always have (mail.uoguelph.ca). You will go to the regular Single Sign On page that you are used to. Once you enter your userid and password you will be redirected to Office 365.  
 
Please note that until December 31, 2016, when you sign on, you will also be given the option to access Zimbra (the current Gryph Mail system). This can be valuable for validating your migration.  
 
Pre-Migration and Post-Migration Checklists  
To ensure a smooth transition, we ask that you check the pre- and post-migration checklists to record any information that will NOT be migrated (signatures, filters, etc.). You can check this on the Office 365 website or use the attached checklist. It might be a good idea to set aside time immediately following the migration to set up your Office 365 email account using these checklists.  
 
Post-Migration 365 Support  

  • Your U of GH IT team has worked extremely hard over the past few months to become super users of Office 365, and are well equipped to provide the support you need. They will be available throughout the migration. Contact them through your normal processes: 
    • Go to the IT support on the 4th floor (GH401) 
    • Phone Ext. 6242 (Rick Thomson) or Ext. 6243 (Mathan Shan) 
    • Email acts@guelphhumber.ca (Academic & Campus Technology Services) 
  • Members of the CCS Office 365 Project Team will be on site at the University of Guelph-Humber on July 11 (9:30-12:30pm in GH301) to provide support and July 12 to provide post-migration support and training (two sessions 10-12pm / 1-3pm in GH321).  
  • The Office 365 Project Team will be sending weekly emails with Office 365 tips and tricks.  
  • The Office 365 website (uoguelph.ca/office365) is a great resource, with information on features, benefits, device configuration, desktop client set up, training and support.  
  • Microsoft product information is easily searchable online, so many of your questions can be answered by a quick Google search.  
  • The CCS Help Centre can be reached at 519-824-4120 x 58888 or 58888help@uoguelph.ca.  

 
We will be in touch again next Monday to give you day-one instructions.  
 
Let's do this!

Hello Gryph Mail users,

Our migration dates have been confirmed!
•    University of Guelph-Humber will be migrated from Zimbra to Office 365 over the weekend of July 9/10.
•    University of Guelph will be migrated from Zimbra to Office 365 over the weekend of July 23/24.

Users will have limited access to email over the migration weekend. Each individual will receive a notification immediately before and after their mailbox is migrated. While their account is being migrated, users should not create or send any email messages. More explicit instructions will be provided closer to the date, and more information can be found at uoguelph.ca/office365. Should there be any changes, we will inform all users accordingly.

There will be information and training sessions throughout the summer. More details about that next week!

Gryph Mail Made Better

Hello Gryph Mail users,

Your Gryph Mail will be migrated to Office 365 by the end of July. There are a few quick steps that you can take today to make sure all of your information is accessible after the migration to Office 365 – especially if you are leaving for all or part of the summer.

Please visit the pre-migration information on the CCS Office 365 website to get instructions on how to save the following information that will NOT be migrated:

  • Any FILTERS you have created
  • All of your email SIGNATURES
  • Details of your FOLDER RETENTION PROPERTIES (rules you have set for deleting folder items)
  • Saved SEARCHES
  • FORWARDS to other email addresses

If these are features you currently use and would like to leverage in Office 365, please follow these steps to save them now - it should only take a few minutes.

If you have any questions at any time or require assistance, please contact us at office365@uoguelph.ca. We are happy to help.

From the Office of the Chief Information Officer:

U of G staff, faculty, graduate students and other Gryph Mail users will have their Gryph Mail and calendars migrated to Microsoft Office 365 by July 31, 2016.

Your email, calendar, contacts, tasks and resources will be migrated for you; however some elements such as filters, signatures and saved searches will NOT be migrated. Please review the pre-migration information on our Office 365 Project Page (see below), especially if you are leaving campus for all or part of the summer, so that you can prepare for the migration and know what you will need to manually configure in Office 365 following the migration.

We will keep you informed about this exciting project as it progresses, so be sure to watch for emails from office365@uoguelph.ca! And if you have any questions, please contact us at office365@uoguelph.ca - we are eager to help.

Our Office 365 Project Page can be found by going to the main CCS website, clicking the Projects tab and selecting 'Transition to Office 365'. You will find general project and pre-migration information, as well as useful FAQs.

Subject: Transition to Office 365

Gryph Mail Users,

We have exciting news about our campus email and calendaring platform!

Over the past year, CCS pursued a substantial discovery process to understand the email, calendaring and collaboration requirements of staff, faculty and graduate students. We received considerable feedback regarding the current tool (Zimbra, a.k.a. Gryph Mail, which has been in use since 2008) along with significant insight into replacement preferences.

After careful consideration and research, we are pleased to announce that the new solution for U of G faculty, staff and graduate students will be Microsoft Office 365. Office 365 addresses many of the important criteria identified by our campus community: ease of use; reliable integration with mobile devices; enhanced security; hosting in a Canadian data centre; unlimited storage; and enhanced collaborative and document sharing capabilities.

Email and calendaring will be the initial focus of the Office 365 implementation, with completion targeted by the end of July 2016. Our campus project will be guided by a steering committee with representation from all stakeholder groups, who will oversee the communication plan to keep you informed throughout the next few months. 

Planning is underway and decisions are being made about the logistics of migrating email and calendar items, the timing and type of support and training we will deliver, when undergraduate students may also be migrated to Office 365, and which additional Office 365 features (e.g., One Drive, SharePoint, Skype, etc.) will be made available, and when.

Details about these important decisions and other aspects of this project will be forthcoming in the next few weeks and will be communicated via email and on our project page at https://www.uoguelph.ca/ccs/projects/office365.

I hope that you will join me in looking forward to Office 365 as our new campus email and calendaring solution with all of the significant benefits it will offer us. If you have questions or comments, please contact the CCS implementation team at Office365@uoguelph.ca.
