Fall Semester Software Requests
We are just a few weeks into the new semester. However, it is never too early to start planning for fall. If you know you will need software for a class, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can guarantee that your programs are available by the first class day.
Office 2013 Upgrade
Microsoft has released Office 2013. This means that that a campus-wide upgrade is in the works. We would like to know of any inconveniences that may arise from a Summer 2013 upgrade.
New Trainings Available this Month
We are happy to announce that we have three new trainings available to you. Along with other trainings, we now have trainings in Adobe Photoshop, Excel Pivot Tables, and Mail Merge in Word.
For this month's Tech Tip we look at how you can disable the voicemail text preview in Outlook and the Online Web Access.
Technology Tutorial Update
If you are the type of person that loves to have instructions in front of them while they work, then our technology tutorials are for you. We are always updating these and it is a service we are proud to offer you. We have two new tutorials this month.
February 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 Tammy Milum.
