The new student email transition to Outlook live has begun. This is how it will affect Sharepoint.
- Collab Site collections – If students have been added directly added by their old PirateID, they will have access to the site until September 30th. It would be in your best interest to remove their old PirateID and replace it with their new one. If students were granted access via a Active Directory Security group, like by a course distribution, students will need to login via their new PirateID. Group membership has been dropped from their old accounts and moved to their new accounts.
- Download Center – Students need to log in with their new PirateIDs. The download Center works off of Active Directory security groups, therefore the old PirateIDs have no permission to access the site or any files.
