Hi everyone, I wanted to post a friendly reminder that EDUCAUSE is accepting nominations and applications to serve on the EDUCAUSE Board of Directors. Serving on the EDUCAUSE Board is an excellent opportunity to represent the community on all kinds of matters affecting the organization and, by extension, ...

Hi all,We are redesigning our website and we're having a lot of discussions about our directory. The web design firm we're working with is most skilled at taking a single CSV data file and ingesting that into Drupal (our chosen CMS). We/They/It can't take data from multiple sources. We are hoping for ...

Joe - was your increase for ONE or for your "regular" set of licenses? Bret - I wrote our rep immediately and got this: " we are not forcing the change to ZoomONE, this is an optional upgrade on your licensing."

Thanks Josh. We'll keep that in mind. We have over a decade of accounts that were never deleted so this is going to be a pretty ugly process in any case.

Hi all,My apologies - we value our relationship with Amplified (and they saved our bacon more than once) and one of my colleagues indicated to me that I didn't quite get my original comment correct. We have not yet gained the GAM knowledge to do this on our own, and Amplified does not (and has never, ...

Hi all,We're trying to identify inactive users in our domains, and haven't had much luck with Amplified, with whom we partner for much of our Google admin knowledge. I have seen many of you make references to "generating a report of inactive users" so I'm pretty sure it's possible. I'm presuming that's ...

thanks for both of your replies. @Ashley are you saying that the solution is not viable without higher performance GPUs (which are of course wildly expensive right now)? Or just that they cannot be a 1:1 replacement of a physical machine just yet? We are thinking more in terms of providing "enough" ...

Hi all,We are trying to more effectively address tech equity on campus. I know many comprehensive institutions have gone the route of virtual labs, but I presume this is problematic considering the varied and often intensive computing demands of art students. But...has anyone explored this area? Any ...

Sorry. I should clarify - it's more the data exchange side that I'm talking about. For example, we are going through reports to change from EFC to unmet need. But there will be a lot of data changes with the new FAFSA. What are folks doing to handle all that? What "gotchas" have you identified/been worrying ...

Hi all,We continue our work to prepare for the new FAFSA. Curious as to what other schools are doing, though. We already have the "socialization" side of things (communications to applicants, primarily), but is anyone enlisting outside help (consultants, for example)? Having them ready to help if needed? ...

That's what I thought, but our legal team asks "everyone" to keep all emails related to a specific search term. But this might be an overly broad interpretation of e-discovery need by our lawyer.

Thanks. Aaron - I might be misunderstanding how the specific accounts feature works. I thought that would hold only the data in that one account. What about a hold on data on another account that meets the search criteria? Sorry if it's a dumb question. Allan -- Allan Chen he/him/his Vice President ...

Hi all,How are you all managing user accounts, account management, and legal holds? For example, if we get a hold request for John Smith, we need to place the hold on our entire domain, otherwise emails and whatnot would be missed. But, according to the warning that pops up, we then can't delete any ...

Ian,Thanks. Yes, we are trying to master GAM to the point where we are comfortable and we'll keep at it. But thank you for the backup option.

Hello all,We are in a bit of a bind with Drive data deletion. A year ago, we used the retention rule approach and that went well. We are being advised by Google that we should not use that method this time around because we won't have a restore option. We should use the API instead. The problem is that ...

Oh, sorry. I was incredibly unclear. I don't mean security at all, actually. I was thinking of an annual report on what IT has done, goals accomplished, etc. A recap of the previous 12 months, to recognize effort, celebrate wins, and publicize to the community the role that IT plays in institutional ...

Hi all,I am working towards producing an annual report. We haven't done one before. I'd love to see some samples, if you do one, and/or get a sense of how long they are, and how much effort it is. The second part is more about how much actual design work you do/can put into it than necessarily just about ...

Meredith,We have Pathify here. It was first launched about 5 years ago. We need to refresh the implementation to make better use of the audience groups. We have been adding widgets for Course info (direct links into Canvas), grade info, and financial status, along with a connection to one's email. These ...
