Employee Calendar Room Resources Being Moved to Exchange Online

[Sept. 19, 2019] IT will be moving the employee room resources that are booked through Calendar from our current, on-premises Exchange environment to Exchange Online. This change will go into effect on Friday, September 27. This prerequisite step is required for the larger migration of employee email and calendar resources that is happening later this fall.

User Impact

Following this change, users will be required to provide their Sheridan credentials* when accessing room resources via calendar. To authenticate you will need to enter your Sheridan username using the format username@shernet.sheridancollege.ca as illustrated below. Check the box beside ‘Remember my credentials’ and you will not need to authenticate every time you access room resources.
 Outlook authentication window
* Once all employee resources have been migrated to the Cloud this step will not be necessary.

Timelines for Moving Employee Email & Calendar Resources

The migration of employee email/calendar resources will start in October, with migrations occurring department by department. You will receive email notification prior to your resources being moved.

If you have questions or concerns about the migration of calendar resources, or the move of employee email to Exchange online, please contact the IT Service Desk at servicedesk@sheridancollege.ca or call ext. 2150.
