The Scripps email and calendar system, GroupWise, has served the college’s needs well in many capacities, but it is time to modernize and upgrade. Over 500 community members provided input and the college has decided to move to Office 365 which is the newest version of Microsoft Office that includes Outlook email.
Windows users, most have been updated, if we missed you, please schedule an appointment by filling out this form for you and/or your department.
Mac users will fill out this form for your individual appointment.
PC users will need to backup files prior to imaging, full instructions
Mac users will need to simply logoff of their station when we schedule the work.
All users should complete Outlook training in lynda.com; for more information
A new Windows 7 image will be installed that will include the newest versions of Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer, as well as updated versions of other software such as Adobe Creative Cloud. Macintosh computers will have the Outlook client installed; no imaging is required at this time.
Training starts March 9, 2015, to view training schedule.
Test accounts will be created for every email account, which will enable you to “play” with the system before it goes live. Please look for the notice to come out in early March 2015.
All email, contacts, address books, attachments, categories, archives and calendar information will be moved from GroupWise to Office 365. Rules and Signature information will not migrate so you will need to recreate these in Outlook.
Typically all email programs have attachment limits of 25MB.
