Important information about the switch to Gmail

The Gmail Transition Team is excited to share that the transition date for Gmail / Google Calendar has been moved from May 15th to May 12th. This change is in response to requests to align the transition with the already scheduled regional meetings on May 12th.  Therefore, starting Friday May 12th, staff will no longer receive new emails through either Microsoft Outlook, or Outlook Web Access (OWA).  The old email system will remain online temporarily, providing staff the ability to verify that their emails, calendars, and contacts have been transferred to Gmail.

What does this mean for you?

Starting on May 12th, access your AEA 267 Gmail by going to www.google.com and signing in (if you are not already signed in).  In the upper right hand corner click on the text- Mail

Gmail icon

 

 

 

Or alternatively, the Gmail icon may appear under the “cube” icon

To access your AEA 267 Calendar, click on the “cube” icon and then click on the Calendar Icon.

In addition to the already scheduled trainings, the Technology Team & Early Adopters will be offering additional support during the regional meetings on the 12th. If you have already signed up for the trainings that were scheduled after May 15th, you can choose to attend as planned or withdraw and attend during one of the regional meetings.  

The trainings on the 12th will be required for staff that are already required to attend regional meetings. Staff that typically don’t attend regional meetings are invited to attend on the 12th.  View the schedule and locations via this document and complete the RSVP form if you plan on attending.

Thank you to everyone who has made this transition possible! The team is excited about the possibilities and looking forward to supporting staff.
