Learning to Use Exchange Calendar

In order to assist Oracle Calendar users with the transition to Exchange Calendar, OIT is offering several means for you to familiarize yourself with the new service.

Live training is being offered at several levels: Introductory and Advanced, as well as specialized training for “delegates” – those who manage other calendars (for example, rooms or campus officers) – and for those involved in IT support.

Introductory classes are offered as small, hands-on classes in Social Sciences Tower room 104, and as larger lecture-style classes in Humanities Gateway room 1030.  You can check the Exchange Calendar training page for the schedule, and you can enroll via the UC Learning Center (search for “Exchange”.)  Advanced classes are also held in SST 104.  Programs for delegates and IT supporters are scheduled on request.

OIT also offers self-help information on the OIT Exchange web site, with detailed information on how to accomplish many common tasks such as logging in via Outlook Web Access or setting up mobile devices.  There also a FAQ and a collection of known issues related to UCI’s implementation of Exchange.
