Office 2013 upgrade

For the majority of staff, the upgrade to Office 2013 will happen over the weekend of 10/11 June. This means that your desktops will not be available until Monday morning. Separate advice has been provided to those with Election and Manual desktops. 

By Friday 9 June

As a reminder please copy any desktop items to your I drive in case these are lost as part of the update. Simply create a folder in Windows Explorer and drag the desktop items into the folder. Also if you use Quickparts please copy the following files from C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates to your I drive. 

Please call if any problems with this.

On Monday 12 June

Once upgraded please log calls with Capita on x5555. We will also be floor walking to address any issues.
