1. What is Office 365?
      Office 365 is the brand name that Microsoft uses for a suite of web applications.  The Office 365 suite include software such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and more.

    2. How do I save my files when using Office 365 web application?
      Office 365 web applications don't have a Save button. That’s because you never have to save your work. As you work Office 365 automatically saves everything for you — no matter how small or large the changes. This frees your mind to let you think about your projects, thoughts, and ideas instead of thinking about your computer files. If you change your mind about anything you’ve typed, added, or deleted in your notes, press Ctrl+Z (on your PC) or ⌘+Z (on your Mac) to undo your last action.

    3. How Do I access Office 365?
      To access Office 365, go to office365.utoledo.edu and log in with your UTAD@rockets.utoledo.edu and your password, then select the application you wish to use.

    4. What is “the cloud”?
      The cloud” refers to web-based computing services that are hosted outside of our organization. When you use cloud-based services, UT’s Information Technology (IT) infrastructure resides off premises and is maintained by a third party instead of residing on a server at the University. With Office 365, for example, information storage and software are located and managed remotely on servers owned by Microsoft. Many services you use every day, both at home and at work, are part of the cloud – from web-based email and mobile banking to document and photo storage, all of which you can access virtually anywhere.

    5. Why is UT moving to Microsoft Office 365??

      There are many advantages that Office 365 offers to our faculty, staff and students, such as increased mailbox size and storage capacity. It also is in alignment with UT’s strategic priorities, such as supporting external research collaboration. Additionally, UT’s operating costs will be reduced by an estimated $2.5 - $3 million annually by limiting hardware and the number of servers the University must own.

    6. After I was migrated to Office 365, I could no longer be able to find a user's user id or mail stop in the Global Address Book why?
      Unfortunately, Office 365 does allow us to customize the address book as we were able to with On-Premises mail system. We are currently working with Microsoft to determine when this feature may be available.
    7. How much additional storage space will I have with Office 365?
      You will have approximately 100 times more storage capacity, going from the email default amount of 750MB (megabytes) up to 100GB (gigabytes) for your mailbox, plus a maximum individual message size of 25MB. The H: drive will still exist, providing 1GB of document storage, and will be replaced with 1TB (terabyte) of storage with OneDrive for all faculty and staff.

    8. How do I log on to Office 365 from home (or elsewhere) to access work email after IT migrates my department?
      You may access your UT email 24/7 via http://email.utoledo.edu and then select the “UT Office 365” button. Type in your UTAD user ID and password, then click the “Sign in” button. This will direct you to your Office 365 email inbox. If you have any issues, you may call IT’s Help Desk at 419.530.2400/Main Campus or 419.383.2400/Health Science Campus.

    18. How long will Microsoft Office remain free for University members?
      For Students:  As long as you are registered for fall or spring semester, the license for your Microsoft Office product will remain active.

All other services (One Drive, Office Online, etc.) will be discontinued.  Note: The University reserves the right to remove and not reinstate your mailbox if your UTAD password is not kept up-to-date and has expired. Because logging into your mailbox requires your UTAD user ID and password, UT assumes that you are no longer using your mailbox.  Additionally, under the terms of agreement entered into by UT and Microsoft, be assured your UT email address will not be shared, marketed or sold and your emails will not be mined; however, Microsoft might send only Microsoft -related product information to you.
