Frequently Asked Questions
What is CADET365?
CADET365 is Microsoft Office 365 deployed for CJCR. It is a cloud-based suite of business tools such as, Word, Excel, OneNote, MS Teams and many others. This solution is being deployed to facilitate work from personal devices, improve collaboration for CCO members, and provide an alternate training delivery system.
What is Microsoft (MS) Teams?
Microsoft (MS) Teams is a component of Microsoft 365. It is a collaborative toolset to help you and your colleagues communicate. It provides an easy-to-access bridge between those working in a full-time office setting and those working at home or from other remote locations such as Corps/Sqn personnel. You can use Microsoft Teams to hold web conferences (audio, video and chat), to share information and resources.
Who will use CADET365 and for what purpose?
CADET365 will be used for CTC(Virtual) for the delivery of virtual training. Following that, CADET365 will be used by all Corps/Sqn for their own virtual engagement requirements (with Microsoft Teams) and also to collaborate and share resources and information among staff, cadets, and parents.
At some point, staff will have access to their CCO Net email @cadets.gc.ca through CADET365, from their personal asset or mobile device.
When will I get access to CADET365?
CADET365 will be introduced in a phased approach, with the priority being CTC(Virtual). The onboarding process will begin once staff and cadets have confirmed their availability for CTC(Virtual) 2021. Accounts will be distributed in batches, however we are looking to have all users set-up in advance of the start of contracts/CTC.
The intent is for all adult staff to be on-boarded throughout the summer of 2021 but onboarding of all cadets should only start after the summer and extend over a certain period of time. Onboarding of parents (as guests) will start at a later date that have yet to be determined.
How do I get a CADET365 account?
The CADET365 team will contact you directly to notify you that a CADET365 account has been created of your behalf. You log in information and the details to activate your account will be email to you once your account has been created. During the initial onboarding period accounts will be provided to those identified as staff and cadets attending CTC(Virtual). Following that the project team will follow a phased approach to roll out accounts to all members and cadets.
How do I make sure my account can be created?
For adult staff, ensuring that your CCO Net account is active is the first step in ensuring you will receive your Cadet365 account.
For cadets, they must have an up-to-date e-mail addresses and a phone number entered into Fortress in order to create their accounts. The e-mail addresses must be unique to each cadets, and accessible from the device they intend to use for CTC(Virtual).
How do I verify cadet information in FORTRESS?
In the cadet personal file, under Personal Information – Contact Information make sure that the cadet has ONLY ONE email listed. The email must not be shared with other cadets. For example, if the Bloggings Family has 3 cadets they cannot share one email (email@example.com) as they will each require a different one to be used when creating their CADET365 credentials.
The Telephone (main) field also needs to be validated to ensure that the number used is a number that the cadet will have access to while attending virtual training.
How can I get more information on the project?
More information will be provided through different channels (chain of command, email, Canada.ca, etc.) as it becomes available. If you have any questions, you should contact your RCSU who should be able to answer it. If not, your RCSU can reach out to the project team.
