Get Help 

Outlook plug-in - If you utilize the Accellion Outlook plug-in for securely sending attachments via Microsoft Outlook, an updated plug-in will need to be installed for Kiteworks.  Please contact your local IT Support Team or the IT Service Desk for assistance.  

Workspaces - The new Accellion Kiteworks service does not offer the workspaces feature for storing data.  If you have data stored in workspaces on the retiring Accellion platform, you will need to move it to another location.
