A few years ago our campus moved from Exchange to GoogleApps.  We are now looking into Office 365 for staff and faculty. If you have moved to or are considering moving to Office 365, I would appreciate you sharing the following:


1, What functionality are absent from your current system that are causing you to look at Office 365.

2. If you have already moved to Office 365, did it meet your expectations?

3. If not, what were the shortcomings?

No answers? I was just curious to know if anyone had gone this route.

Thank you,


We moved students to Google just this past summer.....not currently looking at migrating employees, (at least not yet...). We're still doing some clean up, like syncing AD and Google passwords - a few other surprises that testing should have revealed, but for the most part - no show-stoppers.....

Here at UNM, we just completed a move for students to O365. We do plan to move some Faculty to O365.  They will be the ones who were using webmail.
We are moving to provide a calendar which isn't available in our current webmail.
The staff and some faculty will be moving to our on premise Exchange server.
Not sure if this helps!
