Office 365 Overview

Office 365 Logo

Office 365 is a cloud-based service that is designed to meet your email, calendar, and collaboration needs, along with several other applications and services available to you as a member of Wright State.

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.

Mail List Transition

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

In early February CaTS will move the faculty, staff, and announce mailing lists from the University's legacy mailing list server to new lists within Office 365. Everyone currently subscribed to these lists will remain subscribed once this move is complete.

What's Changing: 

Office 365 Clutter Folder Moving to Focused Inbox

Monday, December 2, 2019

After January 31, 2020, your Clutter folder for your Office 365 Wright State email account will no longer be available. 

Focused Inbox will replace Clutter and is now available to all Office 365 customers. Focused Inbox helps you focus on the emails that matter most to you. It separates your inbox into two tabs - 'Focused' and 'Other'. Emails you need to act on right away are in the Focused tab, while the rest will be filtered to Other. You can switch between tabs at any time to access your emails.
