W-Exchange migration delay
Posted by Tyler Payne on March 9, 2016

Because of technical issues, faculty and students will not be migrated to the new W-Exchange email system this semester. A new schedule will be set once testing of the data migration methodology is completed. The Office of Information Technology will be working with its partners in the Faculty Senate Academic Information Technology Council and with the IT directors across campus on a revised schedule for all members of the WMU community. Updates on this project can be found on the W-Exchange website, http://wmich.edu/email

Posted by OIT Help Desk on April 25, 2016

Work continues on the migration to the new W-Exchange email system. The Office of Information Technology has started to migrate early adoptors and expects to migrate newly admitted students and students taking classes during summer I first, then staff, then faculty. An exact timeline will not be determined until thorough testing of the vendor's migration methodology has been completed. In setting that schedule, OIT will be consulting with University leadership, the Faculty Senate Academic Information Technology Council, and the departmental IT directors, among others.

Posted by Melissa Bininger on April 27, 2016

Students who are enrolled in Summer I courses will have their email migrated from Webmail Plus to W-Exchange beginning May 1. An email will be sent three days prior to an individual's migration date. Migration for Summer I students should be completed by May 8 so coursework for the new semester is not impacted. A migration schedule for remaining students, faculty and staff is in development. Questions should be referred to the Help Desk at (269) 387-4357, option 1, or see wmich.edu/email/migration
