Will everyone use Connect the same way?

No. Once email and calendar data have all been migrated, there will be several groups of users:

  • “All-In” Users - These individuals will use Connect for email and calendaring services.
  • Calendar-Only Users - These individuals will use Connect for calendaring only and will continue to use their current email service.
  • Cross-Calendaring Users - These individuals will use on-campus instances of Exchange configured to cross-calendar with Connect.
  • Other Users – Those using Connect will be able to share their calendar with anyone not using Connect (“other”).  Connect calendar data can be viewed dynamically or published to a web site.  And, in a similar fashion, those using Connect will be able to accept and respond to meeting invitations from those using other calendar services.
