End of Year Information

ITS_Blogpost_summer_facultyLeaving your office for the summer requires some planning. There are a few things that you should keep in mind before heading out for a well-deserved break.

Out of Office Email Response

Setting your email to automatically reply is an easy place to start. This notifies correspondents that you will not be responding to their email right away. It’s always a good idea to include when you will be returning as well.

Alternate Voicemail Greeting

Similar to out of office emails, setting your voicemail to let callers know you are away is a good idea, too. This is called an Alternate Voicemail Greeting. This must be set manually.

VPN

VPN or Virtual Private Network allows a user to access network resources while off campus. This includes private and public folders, class folders, and other software. This can provide a way to access files and software while at home or away. The college provides a secure method for VPN, but you must submit a request for a VPN connection.

If you are planning to use your college-owned computer for the VPN process, you will need to schedule a time with the Help Desk (Ext. 3333) to have the VPN certificate installed.
