What is happening? All SharePoint sites will be upgraded to the 2013 Look and Feel. The SharePoint Infrastructure was upgraded to 2013 in January of 2014. At that time, the 2010 look was left in place to allow for a phased transition. The few remaining sites using the 2010 Look are unable to access the full functionality of the 2013 SharePoint services. To bring all sites up to the same standard of support and operations we will schedule  the template upgrade to automatically take place.

When is this happening? Tuesday, October 27, 2015. The process will begin at 8:00 p.m. and will run for several hours. Each site being upgraded will be impacted for about 15 minutes.

What is the impact to SharePoint users? SharePoint service to individual sites with the 2010 templates will experience brief interruptions of service during the upgrade of the site templates to 2013 . Occasionally, users may be prompted to re-authenticate.

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 44357.
