Office 365 Overview

Office 365 Logo

Microsoft Office 365 is a web-based version of Microsoft's Office suite of enterprise-grade applications. Office 365 is available to users through the cloud and includes Wright State's official email and calendar service, Office 365 Sites for collaboration, Skype for unified communications, and a suite of Office Web Apps like Word and Excel.

Note: CaTS is the service owner for Microsoft Office 365, however applications and services reside on Microsoft network servers. Frequent additions and changes to these applications and services are rolled out by Microsoft, and may not appear at the same time for all University members due to the time it takes for cloud-based changes to appear in individual accounts. For an overview of when changes will be made, visit the Office 365 Roadmap.

To learn more about all Office 365 services offered through Wright State, see the links below.

Office 365 Updates

New Training Dates Available!

New dates for CaTS technical training are now available!

New! Technology Training Program

Thursday, April 27, 2017

CaTS is excited to announce the launch of our new Technical Training Program, coming May 2017! This program is designed to help Wright State faculty and staff enhance their computer skills, gain valuable new ones, and expand their productivity at work.

Important Update: OneDrive for Business

Thursday, April 20, 2017

Due to the increasing demand for faculty and staff to transfer and share files to outside organizations, CaTS is activating the feature to share Microsoft OneDrive for Business files with users outside of Wright State.

This feature was not previously enabled due to security concerns. Though OneDrive for Business is considered secure cloud storage, compliance requirements covering sensitive data require the university to maintain access control over certain data types, and therefore cannot be stored outside of centrally managed storage and systems.
