What Is OMAP?

Ozark Mail And Programs (OMAP)

In an effort to be better stewards of both time and money, Ozark Christian College has partnered with Google to provide cutting edge communication tools to our faculty, staff, students, alumni, administrators and trustees. These tools are provided to enable everyone to communicate more efficiently and quickly by removing the traditional obstacles such as separate mailboxes, email lists, time zones, and document management systems.

What's available with Google Apps?

Email (Help from Google) - Built on the idea that you should never be forced to delete mail because of a storage quota, and that finding that long lost memo that someone sent last year should be effortless and instantaneous. We've added a lot of other handy features too, including the ability for you to exchange IMs with your contacts right in the browser.

Drive (Help from Google) - Web-based word processing, spreadsheets, and document storage program that makes collaboration more efficient. Drive lets you keep documents online that others in your organization can edit and update simultaneously right from their browsers. You don't need to keep track of the latest document versions because Drive keeps a history of changes made. So you can see who changed what and revert to an older version at any point. You can also store other documents and files (Word files, PDFs, images, videos, etc) with almost unlimited storage (there are some restrictions) and sharing capability.

Calendar (Help from Google) - Helps you easily organize all of your event-related information, including personal schedules, friends' and co-workers' agendas and public calendars that contain events that you are interested in. You can view all this information side-by-side, making it easier than ever for you to make plans with others. We will publish a master list of events and important dates, too.

Sites (web pages) (Help from Google) - Creating and publishing simple web pages should be quick, easy and free. Google Sites lets you choose from a host of templates and customize them with your content and images, all within a simple what-you-see-is-what-you-get online interface. When you're happy with how things look, publish your pages to the web with a single click.

Chat (Help from Google) - Enables you to exchange instant text messages with your contacts and have voice conversations over the web, and it's completely free - you can connect with friends, family and co-workers all over the world without spending a dime.

Google Hangouts (Help from Google) - Offers many features for communicating with your friends and family.

  • Instant messaging - Chat with all of your Google Hangouts and Gmail contacts in real time.
  • Free PC-to-PC voice calls - You can talk to anyone else for free who's online and has the Google Hangouts client.
  • Send and receive voicemails - If the person you're calling isn't available, you can leave a voicemail.
  • Unlimited file transfers - Send files to your contacts. There are no file size or bandwidth restrictions.
  • Gmail notifications on your desktop — When you're signed into Google Hangouts, you'll be notified of new messages in your Gmail inbox.
  • Broadcast live worldwide - With Hangouts On Air, you can broadcast live video conversations to the world for free.

Next-generation communication and collaboration tools

Google Apps provides you with the next-generation tools you need to handle an increasing volume of information, stay in the loop while on the go, and communicate, share and collaborate with your colleagues, customers and partners. Google Apps offers a secure and scalable platform for communicating, sharing and collaborating anytime, anywhere.


Stay in sync with everyone on your team.

Get on the same page
Collaborate on documents, spreadsheets and presentations, which multiple people can contribute to at the same time. See other people's updates in real-time as they happen. Be on the same page -- literally -- with everyone who needs to be involved.

Create, upload or email
Create new documents from scratch, or upload an existing file. Starting with an email attachment? No need to download and then upload to Google -- just forward it to a special email address, and we'll convert it to an editable online document for you.

Take them offline
Of course every now and then, you’ll need to take your document offline or just send it around the old fashioned way. You can easily save documents as HTML files, Word docs, Excel spreadsheets or even as PDF files.

Go back in time
Easily see all the different versions of a document that existed over time, compare them and quickly revert to an older version if you need to.

Rough day at the office?
Did your laptop hard drive crash? Did your motherboard get fried? No worries; your documents are safe because they are saved automatically as you work within Google Drive!
