Summary

The IT Team met one time during the church year and discussed the following topics Items

  1. UUCE email accounts functionality and management
  2. Cloud Storage for staff and the Board of Trustees

Details

  • Email
    • Our email service is in general providing the level of service needed, thanks to Kevin Webster’s diligent efforts to resolve issues encountered in 2015 when we transitioned to the new hosting service from Go Daddy. As of 5/4/17, Todd will take over email administration duties from Kevin.
  • Cloud Storage
    • Three options were compared; OneDrive (Microsoft), Google Drive, and My Cloud (Western Digital) The decision was to use Google Drive with the transition plan as described below.
  • IT Team Chair
    • Doug Pratt has taken over duties as the team chair as of 5/4/2017
  Item   Recommendation
  Cloud Storage Short Term:Use Google Drive free accounts created with UUCE role-based email addresses (e.g.minister@uuce.org)
Long Term:Google Drive account for non-profit organizations is free, but requires UUCE to be incorporated.
  email Distribute email management activities between Todd and Sheena now that we are fully transitioned over to Go Daddy
