WPI Launches Office 365

To improve campus collaboration capabilities, WPI is launching Office 365 (O365).

Impact

Many benefits of this change include:

  • Improved collaboration tools such as O365 Teams and Planner
  • Improved ability to store, access, and share files using OneDrive
  • Improved mobile capability using O365 apps for mobile devices
  • A new interface at portal.wpi.edu for the WPI Community to access critical academic and business tools like O365, Salesforce, eProjects and soon: Workday

Action Needed

Use portal.wpi.edu to make the best use of O365 apps, including Outlook for the Web, Teams, Planner and OneDrive. Office 2016 can continue to be used on campus computers with very little change, but may not offer the same level of collaboration capability as O365 apps.

Please review WPI's Data Classification Policy and note that you can't store any Restricted Usage data in OneDrive.
