#CampusClear

At the University of Missouri, we are working to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 for the health and safety of our Tiger community — and to create an environment that will allow us to continue to enjoy in-person experiences. Part of that effort is creating a culture of awareness by requiring faculty, staff and students to monitor their health daily. The practice is also recommended for visitors. Now, self-monitoring is made easier with #CampusClear.

Communication & Productivity:

Email

For best performance, it is recommended that you download and configure the Outlook app for your mobile device. Although the Mail app on your mobile device is fine for those who check email on their phone occasionally, the Outlook app is a robust solution for those who rely on email.   Some added features of the mobile app include management of shared mailboxes, categorization of messages, ability to create inbox rules and the ability to view colleagues’ calendars, just as you can on desktop. To download the Outlook app, go to the Apple Store or Google Play and search Microsoft Outlook.

If you would prefer to use the mail app that came with your device, you need to renew your app settings to avoid errors and delays.  Please follow these easy steps to remove then reinstall University Mail on your iPhone at our self-help knowledgebase.  Android users can find information in this article in the knowledgebase.
