Preparing for this change: The following changes will be made to existing Mattermost accounts:
The Mattermost self-registration feature will be disabled.
User accounts that meet any of the following criteria below will be removed. There may be a second review of accounts in the future if the number of user accounts exceeds the license limit; a follow-up communication will be sent out in this case.
The account is already marked as “inactive” within Mattermost.
The account is not a member of any team (i.e. Individual signed up for a Mattermost account, but did not join any channels).
The account has not been active in the past 120 days.
Note: This work will not impact groups/individuals who have already submitted a request to maintain access.
When is this happening? Account removal will begin on Friday, September 13 and continue on Monday, September 16.
Looking for an alternative to Mattermost? Members of the University community are encouraged to use the robust and fully supported suite of tools provided through Microsoft Office 365, specifically, Microsoft Teams, which offers an excellent solution for communication and collaboration needs, https://uwaterloo.ca/microsoft-teams.
What is happening? IST has received new Maple 2019 activation codes and server license files. The most recent three versions (2019, 2018, 2017) are officially supported by Maplesoft.

When is this happening? The Maple license server will be updated on Thursday, May 23 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.
