Good morning!

On Tuesday, November 13th, our last major IT service called SharePoint will switch over to use your Nexus account and password.

Who may be affected? Anyone using a central SharePoint site (sharepoint.uwaterloo.ca/sites<http://sharepoint.uwaterloo.ca/sites/>/...) so please distribute this notice to your area.

When: Tuesday, November 13 from 7:45am-8:15am (30 minutes downtime)

What do I need to do?
1.   Monday, November 12th (the day before). If you do not shut down your computer before you go home, please close any browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox..) that have been using SharePoint. If unsure, close all.
2.   Tuesday, November 13th. If you are an early riser and plan to use SharePoint, you need to close your browser by 7:45am.
3.   You can start using SharePoint after 8:15am.
4.   For a Waterloo-managed computer (aka 'managed Windows Nexus machine'), you will no longer need to login to SharePoint.
5.   If you do get prompted to login, please prefix your userid with nexus\ (the slash above the Enter key). For example, nexus\jjones
6.   If you have any SharePoint documentation, please update with this change.
More information or assistance?
