Office 365 Migration
Northwestern Health Science University converted from Novell GroupWise to Microsoft Office 365. This change will allow users to access, store, sync, and share their email, calendar, contacts, documents, online conferencing, and instant messaging across multiple devices. This Weekly Update & Action Items communication will be sent each week to keep you apprised of key project updates, action items that you need to take for the week to prepare for the conversion, and important upcoming dates and events.
