UPN Change on May 17 Will Affect Office 365 Document Sharing

On May 17, 2018, ITS is changing the User Principal Name (UPN) for UVA Gmail users, HSTS, Law, McIntire, and Darden Office 365 tenant users. Prior to May 17, 2018, when receiving files from users of the ITS-provided Office 365 tenant via OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Groups, or Teams, users in the above groups would normally sign in using userid@eservices.virginia.edu and their Eservices password.

Starting May 17, users in the above groups should sign in using userid@virginia.edu and their Eservices account password (no change), to access these shared files.

If a user who does not have an account on the ITS-provided Office 365 tenant has trouble accessing a shared document, or accessing links to Groups or Teams, that they were able to prior to May 17, 2018, the person on the ITS-provided Office 365 tenant who shared the document with them may need to share the document with the user again.

Office 365 help is provided by ITS's vendor partner, Evolve 365.
