UPDATE: July 14, 12:01-6 a.m.: pantherLINK Email/calendar Service Unavailable

UPDATE: pantherLINK upgrade completed. To learn more about the new features, visit the online video.

On Sunday, July 14 from 12:01-6 a.m., the pantherLINK email and calendar service will be unavailable so that an upgrade to a newer version can be implemented. All incoming mail received during this timeframe will be queued for delivery once the upgrade has been completed. This upgrade is necessary as the current version will no longer be supported in fall.

Although the majority of the customer interface will remain unchanged, this new version will provide some new features, while other features will no longer be available. New features include:
  • A streamlined appointment interface that incorporates the “Scheduler” view when creating a meeting with multiple attendees
  • The ability to recover items deleted from your Trash folder up to 30 days
Three Zimlets will no longer be available: Task Reminder, Contact Cleaner, Contact Organizer.

Pre-implementation open sessions - Three open drop-in sessions (no registration required) have been scheduled for faculty, staff and students to learn about the upcoming changes:
  • Monday, July 8 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in Lubar S250
  • Tuesday, July 9 from 10-11 a.m. in Lubar S250
  • Tuesday, July 9 from 1-2 p.m. in Lubar S250
Post-implementation training sessions - After the new upgrade has been implemented, training will be available through the UITS Learning TECHniques program in two formats: Questions? Contact the UWM Help Desk at 414-229-4040, toll-free at 877-381-3459 or online at
