[Micronet] [Announce] Mailing lists migrating to Google

Jen Bellenger

Dear Micronet:


Starting next month, bConnected will begin working with mailing list owners to migrate mailing lists from CalMail to Google Groups as part of our move from CalMail to Google Apps for Education. In addition to being a robust replacement for our current mailing list tools, bConnected Lists will offer the full capabilities of Google Groups for Business. They will allow for seamless integration with our suite of Google Apps like bMail, bCal, and bDrive, and have the flexibility to be set up as an email list, online message archive, web forum, or collaborative inbox.

Mailing list owners will have through the end of December, 2016 to transition their mailing lists. Direct outreach to current mailing list owners and departments will occur over the next few weeks, and will include instructions on how to migrate lists. Stay tuned on our site (https://bconnected.berkeley.edu) for more details, including training and support materials. 

In addition, the CalNet Identity and Access Team will be integrating CalGroups with Google Groups for Business, to allow centrally-managed groups to be used within Google. They will be releasing more information about the availability of that integration soon.

Timeline


April 2016 - mailing list owners can migrate their lists to Google, users can create new mailing lists in Google, no new mailing lists created in CalMail

June 2016 - departments with subdomain lists will be able to migrate their lists to Google

December 2016 - CalMail Lists service (Mailman) will be shutdown

Training & Support


User Support - CSS-IT is preparing to support users who have questions or need help transitioning their mailing lists to Google

Online Training - a complete set of online documentation, training & support materials will be made available at bconnected.berkeley.edu as well as in the ServiceNow Knowledge Base

Workshops - workshops to support mailing list migrations to Google will be offered to faculty & staff at the ETS Academic Innovation Studio and other strategic locations on campus

Departmental Consultation - departments who manage subdomains with mailing lists will be contacted and provided support and consultation tailored to their department’s needs


Please contact us with any questions or concerns:

Hi Micronet,

We've just sent the following communication to mailing list owners about our list migration plans for CalMail mailing lists. Our target date for list migration to begin is April 27, 2016. Lists contained within a sub-domain, e.g., @example_subdomain.berkeley.edu instead of @lists.berkeley.edu, will be available to migrate in June. All list owners will have until December 20, 2016 to migrate. Check out the recently launched bConnected Lists service page for additional information about the service.

Best,
Jen
