Requesting an AI-powered tool?

Currently, the Provost’s Office is discussing how best to deploy artificial intelligence tools, or tools with artificial intelligence capabilities, especially when protecting personal information, institutional data, and intellectual property.
As such, any requests for integrating 3rd-party AI are on hold. To read more about the University’s work in the area, please visit https://act.utoronto.ca/ai-readings.

Requesting Email Client?

Please, check the already approved 3rd party email clients listed on the Enabled Integrations page.
To maintain IT environment security, consistency, and support, the ARC has chosen not to proceed with enabling integration for third-party email clients.
The University’s preferred and fully supported email client is Microsoft Outlook.
