Post-Transition Checklist

Add to Calendar

As a helpful reminder, add this calendar item now to block off time August 12 to complete these tasks.

The following checklists will help guide faculty, staff and students in accessing and updating Microsoft services and applications following the August 9th-11th Office 365 Shared Tenant transition.

These actions must be completed after the transition, so we encourage you to bookmark this page now to reference on August 12th!

These checklists cover common tasks, yet some may not apply to you and/or you may need additional information for other Office 365 services and applications.

Please see the complete list of knowledgebase articles for further guidance, or contact HuskyTech at (320) 308-7000 for technical support.
