A shared account allows several K-Staters, such as a college or department staff, to share a single K-State Zimbra account, which includes email, calendar, contacts, document, and more. Shared accounts replaced group accounts in spring 2012. Advantages of shared accounts include:
Note: Shared accounts will not be able to access other K-State resources such as K-State Online or K-State Survey. However, you will not lose your surveys that were previously created using the group account. See Convert to a shared account from a group eID. If you need a shared account to access other resources, please contact the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
To get a shared account, faculty and staff (non-student employees) must submit the Shared Account Request Form (eID sign in required).
