Office 365 Update from U of T's Migration Team

September Update from U of T’s Office 365 Team

Over the upcoming months, the University of Toronto will be gradually migrating Faculty & Staff from Exchange to UTmail+ powered by Office 365. The Office 365 migration team have been working with divisions and departments across the University to develop a more complete understanding of user needs and to ensure that all groups have been engaged throughout this migration process.


Why Faculty & Staff are moving to Office 365

There’s a lot to look forward to with Office 365: increased storage, greater flexibility and new communication and collaboration tools.

With Office 365 you will be able to access your apps on the go. You can access your files from any device on any platform. With OneDrive, you can store all of your documents in the cloud, accessible from anywhere.

Using Office 365’s new communication tools you will be able to connect with your new colleagues using its new social apps. Skype for business will provide you with all of your video conferencing needs, along with instant messaging and voice calling.

Collaboration will be so easy with Office 365. Using OneDrive, you can share documents, edit collaboratively to create projects that truly reflect your whole team. Shared calendars, multi-party video, and group chats ensure that you are always connected with your team.
