Office 365 Features


1 . Will Office 365 Lync Online be available to students as part of the transition?^

Not initially. The implementation of Office 365 Exchange Online is not dependent upon deploying Office 365 Lync Online, so it was determined to be out-of-scope as part of the initial transition to Office 365. This allows time for Office 365 Lync Online to be reevaluated after the Office365 email and calendar transition is well under way. At that time, a decision will be made about a new initiative to deploy Office 365 Lync Online.

2 . Will Office 365 SharePoint Online be available to campus users as part of the transition?^

Not initially. The implementation of Office 365 Exchange Online is not dependent upon deploying Office 365 SharePoint Online, so it was determined to be out-of-scope as part of the initial transition. This allows time for Office 365 SharePoint Online to be reevaluated after the email and calendar transition is well under way. At that time, a decision will be made about a new initiative to deploy Office 365 SharePoint Online.
