Collaboration Tools

Description of collaboration services at PNWU such as Confluence wiki and Office 365 tools such as SharePoint Online, Skype for Business, Yammer, Planner, Teams, and more.

PNWU uses Office 365, which is a cloud-based collection of services that includes tools for collaboration, project management, document storage, and much more. Use your PNWU userid/password to access the following: 

SharePoint Online
PNWU uses SP Online for team-based collaboration. Create document libraries that have version control and notifications, and have multiple people working on the same document at the same time. 

Microsoft Teams is a hub for teamwork in Office 365.  Keep all your team's chats, meetings, files, and apps together in one place.

OneDrive for Business
OneDrive is your personal version of SharePoint. Store your documents in the cloud, sync to your work and personal computers, and share individual files with people you're working with, both affiliated with PNWU and other partners. 

PNWU uses Yammer as an internal social media network, with staff, students, and faculty posting news and updates in the 'All Company' group that might not be appropriate for broadcast email. It includes things like items for sale, fundraiser and social events, and praise for an individual or group. Anyone can create private or public groups to share and collaborate. 

Quickly create and edit content for teams. Contact the Help Desk for assistance in getting access. Note the use of our standalone wiki service is being deprecated in favor of SharePoint Online. Contact Jameson Watkins for more information. 

Microsoft Office 365 for Home Use
Current students and employees can download up to five copies of MS Office - that's Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Access - for home use. The subscription based license will remain active until student's graduation or employee's separation.

Other Software is available for purchase at a discount through the Microsoft Store for PNWU (On the Hub).
