Moving to OneDrive – drop-in workshops: News dates added

January 17th, 2019

From the end of January 2020, access to the existing personal (Z: drive) will be restricted to read only as the University moves away from the current main data storage drives and on to Microsoft OneDrive.

To help people migrate from using the Z drive to OneDrive for Business, a series of drop-in roadshow events have been planned throughout January.

The one-hour workshops will cover things like:

  • How to get started (logging in, what is Office 365, what is OneDrive for Business)
  • How to safely transfer information from Z drive to OneDrive for Business
  • How to get the best out of OneDrive for Business (sharing, working together, remote working, removing barriers)
  • Who to contact if you need further support
  • How to access further training

A new set of drop-in sessions has been arranged for the second half of January. No booking is required – just turn up to one of the following sessions:

Monday 20 January 2020: 1pm, Room LT1, Exchange Building, Jubilee Campus

Tuesday 21 January 2020: 1pm, Room A41, Clive Granger Room, University Park

Wednesday 29 January 2020: 11am, Room A2026, Derby Medical School

Friday 31 January 2020: 10.30pm, Room A50, Nottingham City Hospital

Visit the Office 365 SharePoint site (log in required) to see all events and for more information.

None of the sessions offered are suitable for me. Please either let me know of other sessions or where I can get hold of the learning materials for the sessions that are being delivered.
