The IT department has discovered a recent change in the pathway to the “Documents” page in OneDrive when clicking on web OneDrive through Office 365 portal, it will bring you to the SharePoint site instead of the OneDrive content page:

In order to reach the Documents page you will need to click “Document” on the SharePoint page to access OneDrive content

Here is the current pathway:
Portal.office365.com > login > OneDrive > Your Department > Department SharePoint Site > Document > Your OneDrive content is there.

Good news, everyone!

Having to remember lots of different usernames and passwords annoys everyone. That’s why we’ve just activated a feature that lets you use your NCPA NetID to log in to Atlas!

This feature uses a single sign-on site called Clever. Follow these instructions to log in to Atlas via Clever using your NCPA NetID. Bonus tip: Clever also gives you access to GradeCam and Zoom.
