GatorNet Project Update – Launching Soon!
Launching September 18
The official launch of Green River’s new SharePoint powered intranet, known as GatorNet, is just over a week away! Launching on September 18, the new GatorNet will help propel Green River forward in how we access information, employee resources, and share campus-wide communications. On Friday, September 20, we will be hosting a casual information session to provide an opportunity to learn about GatorNet, ask questions, and provide feedback. Additional information sessions will be scheduled throughout the fall quarter with dates and times to be announced.
Please Note: The new GatorNet site is still currently in beta, with content actively being added and updates being made. You will see changes throughout the next week leading up to the launch.
The new GatorNet will launch on Wednesday, September 18. You will be able to access the new GatorNet the same way you access the current GatorNet: by visiting gatornet.greenriver.edu or clicking on the GatorNet links in the footer on greenriver.edu. On September 18 visiting gatornet.greenriver.edu will redirect you to Office 365, and the new GatorNet website on SharePoint. If you have not recently logged in to your Office 365 account, you will be asked to log in using your Green River email.
Signing into Office 365 and GatorNet
When you visit the new GatorNet for the first time you will be presented with a sign in box. Please sign in using your Green River College email address. If accessing GatorNet from off campus, you may be required to provide your username and password for additional verification. If you have any trouble signing in, please contact the IT Helpdesk for support at ext. 2222.
Archive of the Current GatorNet
You will be able to access an archive of the current GatorNet from a link on our new GatorNet homepage. Be aware, content will no longer be updated on the archived GatorNet after September 18. The archive will be kept online and accessible to all employees during fall quarter to help with the transition to our new platform. At the end of the fall quarter the archive will be taken offline and will no longer be accessible except by IT staff.
We have worked closely with content managers to update and bring content into our new platform and want to ensure nothing is overlooked. Keep in mind migrated content may have changed names or location, and content owners may have decided not to migrate certain pieces of content.
The web team would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has provided feedback through our surveys, stakeholders and individuals we have met with, and our content managers for working hard to help prepare content for the new platform. If you have yet to complete the third GatorNet survey, you can do so by visiting the GatorNet project page. The current survey will be closed upon the launch of the new GatorNet, and a new survey created to collect additional feedback.
