Get Ready for Office 365 Resources
Office 365 will be replacing pantherLINK as the campus email and calendar solution on Monday, July 28. The document and tutorials below will allow you to prepare for the migration from pantherLINK to Office 365. Any emails or email attachments larger than 25 MB will not be migrated from pantherLINK to your Office 365 account. If you have any email messages larger than 25 MB, you must locate and manage those emails and attachments before the migration.
For those interested in hands-on assistance, Learning TECHniques is offering the free workshop Get Ready for Office 365. Visit the Schedule page for more information about the class and the Registration page to sign up.
