Access Connections with Unite Identity

You must now use your Unite Identity username and password to log into Connections. This upgrade means you’ll use the same login as other key applications such as Unite Mail, Unite Docs, Umoja, Self-Service and others. Community owners should remind their UN and external partners who have access to Connections of the upgrade and the need to activate their accounts.

UNHQ successfully migrates to Office 365

Like a journey of a thousand miles, UN Headquarters' move to Office 365 began with one step, one small pilot in OICT. The journey has ended, with all UNHQ offices--over 8,000 users--migrated.

Thanks to all colleagues who worked closely with OICT in the Department of Management (DM) to achieve this major milestone.

The Office 2010 Suite will no longer be supported by OICT. Documents created in the older version of Microsoft are automatically compatible with Office 2016.
