Information Services are in the process of moving the University’s Microsoft services over to the Microsoft 365 platform.
Our email service has already switched across, and we’re now getting ready to move all departments’ SharePoint 2010 sites to the latest SharePoint version offered through Microsoft 365.
In preparation for this, we need to apply some changes to all users’ profiles on Friday, 28 June. You may notice the following as a result:
- Your ‘recent documents’ will be cleared from the Word, Excel and PowerPoint applications
- You’ll see other options when you open or save a document in these applications
Additionally, if you own a SharePoint site, check whether the content is in line with our information retention policy as all sites and content will be moved over to the new service.
The IS project team will be in touch with your department’s management team to discuss when the move will take place and who needs to be involved in this.
You can find out more about the project, the benefits of the new SharePoint service, and some user support material here.
