Department Migration - N & O Drive to Teams, Miscellaneous Account to Shared Account

What to expect when your files are migrated to Teams

N & O Drive Migration to Teams

Effective November 15th, 2023 all department files will be transitioned to the Teams platform. This move is aimed at streamlining our file management process and enhancing collaboration within our departments. Teams offers a wide range of features that will facilitate better document sharing, version control, overall collaboration, and communication among team members.  

Here are a few key points to be aware of regarding the file migration: 

  • Folder Structure: The Teams site will maintain the same level of organization, folder structure as your current shared network drive.  
  • File Transfer: IT will oversee the migration process, ensuring a seamless transfer of files from the current network drives to the Teams site. You don’t need to take any action regarding the file transfer itself. 
  • Timeline: The file migration has already begun and is expected to be completed by November 15th, 2023. During this period, files will be migrated to your Teams site, access to the file shares will be read only for one month and read only access will be removed after the one-month time period.
  • Communication and Feedback: Please share any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have regarding the file migration process. Your feedback in valuable in ensuring a successful migration.  

To see what Teams will look like, how to access it, manage your teams and share files see Microsoft Teams - Accessing, Managing Teams and Sharing Files

Miscellaneous Account to Shared Account (and file migration to teams)

  • The migration of department miscellaneous accounts (i.e. its@uwlax.edu) to shared accounts will remove the need to sign into the account.
  • Once your Teams Site has been migrated then we will show you how to migrate any files you have from your miscellaneous account to Teams.
  • Once the files are moved to Teams then we will migrate the miscellaneous account to shared account (which has email only access). 

Thank you for your cooperation in making these transitions as smooth as possible. We appreciate your support in embracing this change and look forward to a more efficient and collaborative work environment.  Should you have any immediate questions or concerns, please contact your dedicated ITS Tech Support Representative
