Employee email upgrade adds file storage, Office Web Apps to Office 365
On July 20, Microsoft will upgrade Office 365 for NDSU employees. During the upgrade, employees can continue to access email in Outlook or on mobile devices without interruption. Those who are logged in to webmail during the upgrade may be required to sign out and then sign back in.
Office 365 includes email, calendaring, Lync for instant messaging and online meetings, and SharePoint Team Sites for collaboration and document sharing.
After the July 20 upgrade, NDSU employees will also have access to Office Web Apps and SkyDrive Pro. Office Web Apps are online companions to Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint that can be used to open documents on mobile devices and on computers without Microsoft Office software. SkyDrive Pro provides 7 gigabytes of secure storage space for storing, organizing, and sharing business documents, photos and other files.
