Migration to Stream (on SharePoint) following the Discontinuation of Stream (Classic)



Discontinuation of Stream (Classic)

Currently, clicking on the Stream icon from the Microsoft 365 portal will take you to Stream (on SharePoint).
If you want to access the traditional Stream (Classic), you will need to click on “Click here to access Stream (Classic)” in the upper right corner of the page you are taken to.
After clicking, you will see Stream (Classic). This will be phased out.

After the discontinuation of Stream (Classic), the University’s administrators will no longer be able to provide support. This is because our administrators will no longer be able to access or use Stream (Classic).
