Two months ago, UWF student email and calendar moved to UWF Google Apps - now it’s your turn. On November 6, 2009, also known as G-Day, UWF faculty and staff will begin using Google Apps for email and calendar. The current Exchange email and calendar system, typically accessed through Outlook or ArgoMail, will remain available for historical purposes for a few months, but will no longer be receiving new email or calendar invitations. Your email and calendar will be copied to Google Apps by Information Technology Services (ITS). Email addresses will not change.
Even though ITS will be copying your email and calendar, there are several things you’ll need to prepare. It is now time for you to “Get Ready & Get Set.” If you haven't already done so, you need to complete a "Get Ready" for Google Form. The form will assist Information Technology Services in addressing your specific email and calendar needs.
You can now log into your new Google Apps account and begin preparing for G-Day (November 6). Keep in mind that while you can log in now, UWF will continue to use Exchange Outlook/ArgoMail for email and calendar until November 6 - you will not receive email in your Gmail account until that time. DO NOT create new calendar events on your Google calendar before G-Day (or if you do, delete them once you're done testing).
Information Technology Services (ITS) will move your email and calendar to Google; however it is imperative that you follow the steps below to help ensure a smooth transition.
Log into Google Apps at gmail.uwf.edu (Bookmark UWF Gmail). Use your ArgoNet username and password - the same credentials that you use to log into Argus.
Below is your checklist of tasks to prepare for Google Apps. Complete these tasks before G-Day, November 6.
Contact the ITS Help Desk at 474-2075 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you experience any problems.
