Migration Timeline

Below is the timeline for the remainder of the campus migration to Office 365 and the retirement of WiscMail/WiscMail Plus and WiscCal. (updated 10/1/2015)

If you have not yet migrated to Office 365, please see the timeline below for information on when your account will migrate.

September 15 – November 23, 2015

  • Mandatory migration of WiscMail (@wisc.edu) accounts.  WiscMail Plus and departmental accounts with confirmed mappings to a NetID will migrate as well.
  • Individuals will receive an email notification approximately two weeks before scheduled migration. This will provide an opportunity to start self-migration at a convenient time, if desired. Scheduled migration dates will be non-negotiable; therefore, moving prior to the mandatory migration period will be advantageous for most people.
  • Accounts will be migrated in the following order:
    1. September 15: WiscMail accounts belonging to individuals who have not been added to a departmental migration group by a Migration Partner
    2. October 20: WiscMail accounts belonging to individuals who are part of a departmental migration group with December migration dates for their Manifest group
    3. November 3: WiscMail accounts belonging to individuals who are part of a departmental migration group with dates prior to October 20 for their Manifest group
    4. November 17: All remaining WiscMail accounts, including individuals who have been added to a departmental migration group by a Migration Partner, regardless of Go-Live date
