Windows 10 and Microsoft Office

With the recent release of Windows 10, there have been an increased number of questions at the 2FIX Help Desk about upgrading to the latest version of Windows. Currently, most BVU-owned laptops are running Windows 7 and Office 2010. These products will continue to be supported and receive security updates until the year 2020. The version of Windows 10 that will be available on University-owned computers will be released to BVU in early August and we will begin final testing with BVU software applications at that time. More information about upgrading to Windows 10 will be available once final testing is done. At this time, we expect to wait on deploying Windows 10 until after the newest version of Office, Office 2016, is released this fall. 

Please feel free to contact the 2FIX Help Desk if you have any questions.

Email Interruption Late Wednesday Afternoon

On July 15 at approximately 4:10 p.m. Microsoft experienced an outage with Office 365. During the outage, BVU students, faculty, and staff on the Office 365 email system were most likely not able to log onto Outlook or send/retrieve messages. The service was restored at approximately 7:20 p.m. During this time, any messages that were sent to you were queued up until the service was restored. Any messages that you sent would have been queued up in the outbox on Outlook or your phone/tablet. These messages would have been sent to their destination once your email program reconnected to Office 365 after the outage.

Information Services has refined a procedure that will allow us to send text messages to faculty and staff office phones when an outage occurs that can’t be sent to you over email. This would include an email outage, wide-spread wireless issue, or a general internet outage. For students, notices will be placed on Canvas when possible. As always, you may contact the 2FIX Help Desk for information related to any outage that occurs.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call me at x2388 or email me at scott@bvu.edu.

As of July 15, the TLTC will be relocated to the BVU Library.  The Library and TLTC personnel will be co-located to enhance service capability. This will improve the face-to-face contact with Faculty as they seek assistance with the new Learning Management System (LMS) as well as general help with course maintenance and development.

Our new offices will consist of L-14 and what was the Library Conference Room on the west side of the main floor.  Of course, please do not hesitate to stop down and see us.  We look forward to serving you in our new location and would love to show you around!

BEAVERNet Content Freeze

ITS and UMC will freeze all content on BEAVERNet the week of July 27 – 31 in order to convert the site map from being organized by department or function to being organized by user experience. ITS and UMC will move some resources from BVU.EDU to BEAVERNet in an effort to provide a more user friendly experience for faculty, staff and students. This change will allow for key content contributors to add content on their own. All key contributor's input was sought in order to represent all areas of campus. In the future ITS and UMC will produce content contributor training videos and host training sessions for faculty and staff ease of use.

Outlook Clutter Folder

Microsoft has recently started rolling out a new feature in Outlook called Clutter. Clutter will monitor your email patterns and begin moving messages that you are unlikely to read or want to a new folder in Outlook called Clutter. You will receive an email from Clutter once it is available and activated for your account. If you would like to shut it off, there is a link to do so at the bottom of the email message. If you would like to continue using Clutter but get a message in your Clutter folder that you want delivered to your Inbox you can move the message there and Clutter will adjust accordingly.

SchoolDude Facilities Work Order Change

Starting at noon on Monday July 10, the login process for the SchoolDude Facilities Work Order system will change slightly. Instead of logging in automatically or showing a small login box in the middle of the screen you will see a picture of the BVU arch and will need to enter your full e-mail address and password to log in. Previously you entered just your username. The change is being made to provide a more uniform login experience across all web browsers. Please contact the 2FIX Help Desk if you have any questions.
