Welcome to the December, 2012
issue of IT@Sam Newsletter!
Introducing Alertus Desktop
IT@Sam has deployed a new software package to campus Macintoshes and PCs that will help aid in university communications in case of an emergency.
Have you ever needed to find contact information for a SHSU employee? The SHSU directory allows you to accomplish this. With this Directory you are able to search the entire campus for faculty or staff by either their name or by department.
Still Have Windows XP?
The upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 took place over the summer. However, some Windows XP machines are still out there.
IT@Sam requests that you place your requests for moving technology equipment as soon as possible.
Are you on Facebook? If so, you should know how to limit who can see the information you post.
IT@Sam Staff Updates
We are happy to have Cody Phillips, Lauren Grills, & Jennifer Skains join the IT@Sam team!
December Technology Training Schedule
IT@Sam will be offering a number of training sessions in various programs throughout the year. With each newsletter, we will list the trainings offered for the month. You can sign up for the trainings on the Human Resources website.
IT@Sam would like to "shout-out" to the many different people and teams on campus who make working at SHSU at great experience! This month, we say thanks to Leif Kusch.
