In preparation for the launch of the new myDrake portal later this month, we’re rolling out a new login screen for Office 365. The current screen will continue to be used for other applications including TeamDynamix and Slate. Here’s the current screen:
This new screen, shown below, will replace the current Office 365 login screen on Wednesday, June 13, 2018. This may result in an outage affecting logging into email between 10 and 11 p.m.
Office 365 is the first system to use this new login screen, but we will be converting other applications to using this same login screen. The new login will allow for single sign-on (SSO) access. With SSO, you only have to sign in once, and your authentication is passed on to other applications without having to enter your username and password again. ITS is working towards connecting many applications, including Blackboard and the IT service portal, through SSO access.
One important change with this new system is that you have to be sure to bookmark the application that uses the login screen rather than the login screen itself. This ensures that your credentials will be passed correctly between systems.
