Breeze to StarLeaf app upgrade: admin information
Using BreezeLast updated June 8, 2021
Starting in March 2019, all organizations using Breeze will be upgraded to the StarLeaf app gradually, and Breeze will no longer be useable.
If you are an admin, you will receive an email with the following information:
- the specific date the automatic upgrade will occur for your organization. If you wish to automatically upgrade before the given deadline, contact to arrange this
- a breakdown of how many users in your organization are in each of the following categories:
|1||Automatic upgrade||Upgrade should occur automatically with no issues for the user|
|2||MSI installation||Upgrade must be performed by admins due to original MSI installation|
|3||Incompatible operating system||Upgrade will fail for the user due to an unsupported OS|
For users with a version of Breeze that was not originally mass-installed using the MSI, there are two possible scenarios that will happen depending on whether or not StarLeaf is already installed on their computer. Users can download StarLeaf at any time from here .
