Information services staff have been working through the summer to implement the University’s new Office 365 Portal, according to Michelle Sunderland, information services. Faculty and staff will be invited to use the new portal once IS staff complete testing in coming weeks. New Microsoft Office client applications (Office 2013 for Windows, Office 2016 for MACs) will soon be available on the download center and opportunities for Office 365 training will be announced soon. To learn more about Office 365 implementation plans and find answers to frequently asked questions, visit the project website at sites.up.edu/office365.
Information services has announced improvements to UP’s WiFi services. New networks are available, including “UPStaff” for faculty and staff and “UPStudent” for students. It’s easy to connect to these new networks, just login with your network username and password. The Pilots and PilotsWPA networks are set to retire and are no longer being broadcast. If devices are still connecting to these legacy networks, utilize the device’s “forget this network” feature and connect to the new networks listed above. Also note that campus visitors can now self-register their devices on the” UPGuest” network. A pre-shared password is no longer required to sign in. To learn more visit this link.
Campus members will also notice a new look to UP’s password change website. The page has been updated with everything users need to know about password management at UP, including instructions for the new password management tool. To learn more, visit the new site at up.edu/pwc.
