Staff and Faculty:

What does it mean to use OneDrive at Evergreen? What about my office share drives on Hurricane?

  • OneDrive at Evergreen will eventually replace what is commonly called your (H) drive or personal drive on the server called Hurricane and should be used the same way as you use your (H) drive today. Save your draft college documents here before you are ready to share them with your Team.
  • Storing your documents in OneDrive and Teams ensures that they are securely backed up and available to you from any browser.
  • OneDrive and Teams allow the college to comply with public records retention and requests. Don’t worry, our Microsoft contract covers all of the legal compliances that we’re subject to. See Microsoft's Trust Center.

Sharing documents

  • You can share your documents from OneDrive with others who have Evergreen credentials.
  • Microsoft Teams allows work groups to share documents that are owned by the work unit as a whole. Everyone in the work unit can share and contribute without needing to do individual sharing of documents and folders. Your current work unit file shares in the server called Hurricane and online at will reside in Teams instead. Teams also allow the college to comply with public records retention, requests and legal compliances.
