Roadmap of the transition to Yandex 360

  • Step 1

    Students can already use the full range of Yandex 360 services using their HSE University account (simply log into Yandex using your student email address). Microsoft services remain fully accessible. Please see here for full instructions.

  • Step 2

    All data must be transferred from Microsoft services to Yandex 360 by June 30, 2022.

    See here for instructions on setting up mail, the grabber function (for extracting emails from other inboxes), and automatically uploading all emails to Yandex Mail.

    2. Files

    See here for instructions on downloading files from MS OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams and uploading them to Yandex Disk. See here for instructions on access settings (setting up shared access, Shared Access tab).

    3. Messaging

    See here for instructions on loading chats from Teams.

    4. OneNote files

    Notes must be transferred manually.

  • Step 3. June 30, 2022
