Google Guide Summary
Student Google Guides and ITS and Unit Staff Google Guides were on-site at 16 locations on +Monday. The number of on-site support personnel ranged from one to four depending on the location and unit preference.
Nearly 100 faculty and staff were provided assistance by Google Guides. The topics of the support questions that were covered included:
  • Email: 99
  • Calendar: 65
  • Mobile device set-up: 35
  • Collaboration tools: 25

Executive Support Summary
As part of the roll-out, each unit identified executives and other key personnel that needed special face-to-face consulting as part of the roll-out.  Most units provided their own executive support.  The project team provided Executive support for the Institute for Social Research.

Overall, the migration of data and the support of users went very smoothly this weekend.  The biggest issues that were faced included:
  • Some EECS IMAP and ISR Exchange email and/or calendar events were not migrated
    The data from eight EECS IMAP accounts and one ISR Exchange account did not migrate due to unknown migration issues.
    • Corrective Action:  ITS worked with the different units to identify issues and re-migrated data on +Monday.

  • ISR Exchange and EECS IMAP migrations were not completed by +Saturday morning

Data migration for the Institute for Social Research and EECS was not completed by 8:00 am on +Saturday.  A notice was sent to the Unit Readiness Coordinators and/or Technical Leads on Saturday letting them know that the data migration had not completed although faculty and staff could access their Google email and calendar accounts.  

    • Corrective Action:  Migration continued until complete.  Migration for the Institute for Social Research was completed by +Saturday and for EECS on +Monday afternoon.

Since there are no major or minor open issues, a Day Two report will not be sent on Tuesday.
