OIT Seeks Feedback on Campus E-mail, Calendar System

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is seeking campus feedback on the Zimbra e-mail, calendar and contacts system originally implemented in May 2007. The system currently maintains approximately 62,000 accounts, with more than 90 percent student utilization rate and more than 70 percent faculty and staff utilization rate.

As part of its mission "to identify, assess, and determine campus needs in e-mail and collaboration services," OIT created a 5-minute survey and is inviting members of the campus community to join a pilot team that will test new features and functionality.

On Monday, May 17, OIT will host a community meeting in the Student Center Theater, where they will share results from the survey, as well as some of the future enhancements to Zimbra, including a major upgrade that will add social networking capabilities to my.gatech.edu.
