|The Nexus365 project is now close to completion having migrated approximately 64,000 accounts to the new service.|
All materials from meetings with ITSS and documents of specific interest to ITSS are available in a dedicated library on the project SharePoint site at https://sharepoint.nexus.ox.ac.uk/sites/itprojects/its419/ITSS/Forms/AllItems.aspx (University single sign-on credentials required).
ITSS technical consultation group (TCG)
The TCG has been set up with representatives from each division and from the college ITSS community. The membership has been restricted to approximately 15-20 people to keep it manageable, to ensure open discussion and to aid decision-making. See the Terms of Reference and membership in SharePoint (behind SSO).
The key aims of the group are:
- to explore the technical issues around the migration of Nexus email and calendaring to Nexus365; focussing on testing, planning, user communications and learning resources
- to represent the ITSS community in discussions regarding the changes the project will deliver.
Notes from meetings to date are available via the links below:

Roadshows took place on 9, 14 and 15 March 2018. These included an update on project progress and more information about the planned support arrangements. ITSS were able to ask questions and to have a short demonstration of some of the apps that are available with Nexus365. The sessions were also open to key contacts in units without dedicated IT support staff. See links to the presentations slides and a summary of the questions raised (and answers).
The project team is engaging with ITSS staff and key contacts to discuss support options for helping users on the day of migration to Nexus365.
