We are Going Google!

We’ll gain the benefits of a robust and innovative feature set, the ability to access email and calendar services from any Internet-connected computer, much more storage capacity, and lower infrastructure and support costs. What’s more, Google Apps is easy to use, and we think you’ll find it to be a more efficient way to manage your email and calendar!

Access to mail: http://mail.shepherdsclinic.org

Process

1. Early Adopters

Two colleagues will test the use of Google Apps while e-mail will be replicated in Google servers and in our host.

2. Data Migration

Visits to work on migration

First round: Nov 15th, Nov 20th, Nov 22st, Nov27th

Second round: Will be defined if necessary

CONFIG. CALENDAR: The configuration will be in-person, Visits planned for
Nov. 13th, 15th and 21st in the evening. Clinic Director will provide advise on these dates.

MOBILE ACCESS: During the transition process, disconnect the access to the current mail server on your mobile devices. You will be able to reconnect through Google services afterwards.

VOLUNTEERS ACCOUNTS: Another improvement in the accounts management is that all volunteers should have a Shepherd’s Clinic e-mail account. This new process not only improves how the clinic is seen by external parties, but also the internal communications. Please, fill-out this request form http://goo.gl/Umqs4e with active volunteers without Shepherd’s Clinic e-mail accounts. It will take 2 worthwhile minutes to adopt best practices!

WEBMAIL ACCESS: The new mail service will be available through a new personalized URL for shepherdclinic.org.

3. Documentation and training review (In progress)

The entire collection will be available soon.
