Microsoft Teams Project Update

Earlier this year, UWM faculty and staff had received updates regarding the “Teams Calling Project” – transferring UWM telephone service to Microsoft Teams. We had previously shared that faculty and staff would receive Teams phone numbers on April 2 and that we would begin working to provide Teams phone numbers and transfer existing phone lines throughout the summer.

Due to AT&T-associated delays, as well as emergent COVID-19-related campus technology needs, the April timeframe for Teams number provisioning has been postponed. Even so, UWM’s IT staff were able to distribute over 700 Teams headsets for the Teams Project to faculty and staff to assist them with the telecommuting transition and Microsoft Teams use.
