Jabber Usage

Note: Information Services will retire the Jabber instant messaging service this summer on August 1. Microsoft Teams replaces Jabber as our enterprise service offering for instant messaging. If you are still using Jabber, we recommend beginning your transition away from this tool now. If you have any questions about the retirement of Jabber or would like additional help with Teams, please contact your local IT support or the Technology Service Desk through the UO Service Portal at https://service.uoregon.edu or by phone at 541-346-4357.
