HaverApps is Haverford’s implementation of the Google Apps Education Edition suite of collaborative tools.
Though HaverApps does not currently have some apps you may be accustomed to using in Google Apps (like Groups and Wave), we look forward to rolling out these services to the community in the coming months.
No. Only the system that delivers your e-mail will change. You’ll continue to receive all your email at your current address.
Some users have asked if they can have a new email address once they move to HaverApps. For example, having Joe.User@haverford.edu instead of firstname.lastname@example.org. At this time, we cannot offer new account usernames, however we are investigating offering such usernames in the future.
Unlike publicly available Google accounts, your HaverApps account will only be available to you while you are a member of the Haverford community. For students, your account will deleted after commencement (typically around November 1st). For staff and faculty, your account will typically continue to be available for a few weeks after your employment ends. Once your account is deleted, emails, documents, and other information stored in HaverApps cannot be restored. We will send you several notices about the deletion date and information on how to save your email and other important HaverApps data before we delete your account.
If you have concerns about storing your data with Google, you may find it helpful to read Google’s Privacy Policies: http://www.google.com/Intel/en/privacy.html and http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=60762
Haverford’s agreement with Google does not include provisions for data backup or file restoration. Email sent to trash is automatically deleted after 30 days. However, Google Docs does retain previous versions of documents and documents sent to trash remain there until explicitly deleted. After files and/or email are deleted from trash they cannot be restored.
Google Labs are prototype features you can enable in individual Google Apps. Google does not guarantee that these features will be supported or even available in the future. Google recommends that you do not store important information in Google Labs. You can see which labs are available for each Google App by clicking on the green erlenmeyer flask in the upper right corner of each app. To read more about Google Labs, see the Google Labs FAQ at: http://www.googlelabs.com/faq.html.
You may store up to 25 Gb of mail in Google Apps Gmail. If you exceed your quota, senders will receive a bounce message indicating that you have too much email saved in Gmail. Google Docs allows you to keep specific amounts of certain file types. Read the Google Docs File Size Limits Page for details. There is no file limit on Google Calendars.
HaverApps supports many languages including Japanese and Arabic, but supported languages vary by individual Google application. To see which languages are currently supported and how to change the app interface to a different language, see the following pages or search Google using the terms “language” and your desired Google App.
Google recommends that you use the most recent version or Firefox (Haverford’s supported browser), Internet Explorer, and Safari when using Google Apps.
