2023/05/31 - IMPORTANT "DOM DESKTOP" upgrade 6/6@7pm

On June 6th at 7pm, “DOM Desktop” will be unavailable as it’s being replaced and upgraded. We expect the changeover to take about an hour, but it could take a bit longer. When the new system is available, there will be several significant changes:

  • Every user will receive a new Windows profile
    • Please be sure that all your files are saved to OneDrive/Teams/I Drive prior to the above date.
  • The new system is Windows 11 and will be much faster.
  • The Windows login will no longer generate a DUO prompt.
  • Web shortcuts (i.e. UMM intranet etc.) published by us will only be available in Microsoft Edge in the “Managed Favorites” folder.
  • Most applications will be found in the Start menu and not on the desktop.  (You can pin apps to the Start menu or Taskbar by right-clicking the icon)
  • Teams/Zoom/Webex will now work through DOM Desktop.
    • Teams is the recommended communications app and works best with the Remote Desktop Client.
    • Zoom Audio/Visual optimizations will be available from Department of Medicine managed devices only.

2023/03/07 - Important - H drive > Onedrive Migration

Onedrive is one application in the Microsoft 365 suite of applications offered at UMB/SOM.  It is proven, secure/HIPPA compliant, easy to use/access, and the modern way of storing data. It is also a goal of UMB/SOM to move toward cloud storage in Microsoft 365. 

We are planning to do the following:

  • Migrate all H drives to OneDrive. (Your H drive will not be available to you after the migration. We/IT will still have access if needed.)
  • Turn on the OneDrive feature to automatically backup local documents, pictures, and desktop folders on your respective work computer(s) to your respective OneDrive folder
  • Enable a new option on our Sharp copiers(Medicine only) to scan to your respective OneDrive instead of your H drive

Important Info

  • Automatic local folder backups (bullet point 2 from above) will be enabled for everyone starting March 20th.
  • We recommend using the defaults of the OneDrive sync client(blue cloud near your clock).
  • To access your OneDrive on a mobile device, install the OneDrive app from the “Intune Company Portal” app.
  • While you can share your OneDrive data easily, extensive sharing is not recommended.  Microsoft Teams should be used for group collaboration.
  • You can easily access your files using “Windows Explorer” by looking for OneDrive.  You can also access your OneDrive folders directly from within the Office suite.
  • All users are given 5TB of storage and all files are kept forever - even when deleted. 
  • Please click here to access a Onedrive quick start guide.

Migrations will be done by division/group over the coming months.  Look for a more detailed email as we start the migrations.
