What is happening? The University’s version control system, git.uwaterloo.ca, will undergo the second part of its two-phase upgrade, updating from version 10.8.7 to version 12.1.1. At this time, API version 3 will no longer be supported, and any code still dependent on functionality specific to API version 3 will stop working.
When is this happening? From Monday November 18, 8:00 p.m. to Tuesday November 19, 8:00 a.m., git.uwaterloo.ca will be unavailable during the upgrade window.
The purpose of the Office 365 employee email initiative is to investigate the feasibility of moving staff, faculty, graduate and post-doctoral student email to the Office 365 (O365) cloud environment; and if it proves feasible, after consultation and feedback from the University of Waterloo community, to develop a recommendation for approval to proceed and an implementation plan.
About the consultations
Members of project team will make a brief presentation, which will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any component of the project. The objectives of the IST consultation sessions are:
to review the rationale for email in the cloud deployment
to obtain feedback so we can determine if we will proceed
to identify any gaps or areas we would need to address if we proceed
Reminder and update (Oct 25): This work will proceed as outlined below. Groups with a customized phone menu will remain on CallPilot. IST will follow-up with these groups over the next two weeks to manually migrate customized phone menus.
What is happening? The existing University telephone voicemail service, CallPilot, will be migrated to a new service called OfficeLinx.
When is this happening? Saturday, October 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
What is the impact?
All existing voicemails, greetings, etc. will be migrated, exceptfor the individual’s voicemail inbox PIN.
Steps for signing in to the new system will be slightly different than the current system, but once signed in, all existing function keys are the same as they currently are in CallPilot.
Dial-in phone numbers (on campus, 70000 and off campus, 519-888-4966) will remain the same.
There will be a new web interface for OfficeLinx (used to manage mailbox and optional features, such as email forwarding).
Action required: Following the migration, individuals will be required to:
Sign in to their voicemail inbox using their temporary PIN, and set a new personal PIN.
If using, sign in to the web interface using their temporary application password (different from PIN), and set a new application password.
Note: Individuals will receive a separate email with their temporary PIN and application passwords. Some area telephone administrators may receive the temporary PIN and application passwords for mailboxes not owned by a specific individual.
