First off, I want to give a huge shout out to Katharina for asking this question as it's something that's been plaguing us as well. I look forward to the day when third-party companies offer full SSO and no longer ask for email address lists from us. I appreciate the conversation about not recycling ...

Good morning! For those of you who've gone down the Teams Voice path, how are you dealing with personal headset considerations? For folks with offices, a phone call is just like a remote meeting. For folks in cubicles who don't currently join meetings, moving to a soft phone means that either they ...

Good morning, EDUCAUSEians! We need to replace the system we have for publishing employee directory information to our campus website. We have a system that pulls from AD and presents it, so the information is always live and self-maintaining. That's the good news. I'm guessing it was pretty cutting ...

Good afternoon! Our websites are currently sitting in Drupal but University Marketing & Communications (they own the websites) is less than enthusiastic about it. They'd like to evaluate other solutions but this is something we don't have a lot of experience with. Would you mind sharing your solution ...

I'd love to join a QuickTalk on cyber liability insurance renewal. A bunch of us have been through it recently and more of us are about to go through it. Having a heads up on what to expect in a mileage-may-vary format will help us prioritize projects that may impact our renewals. Live well, laugh ...

That was great, Pegah! It was very timely as I'm introducing these concepts here at BVU and having insight from a dedicated professional in the space is very helpful. UCSD's LISA is an awesome program and I'm glad to see that presentations are now being recorded and posted so the broader EDUCAUSE community ...

Good evening! I've seen discussion of student data removal lately, revolving mostly around GDPR and the imminent Chinese PIPL. These discussions are coming at a good time for me as I'm drafting a pile of new policies and procedures. We currently disable but keep all user accounts and associated forever ...

Okay, we all know that the only thing IT staff hate worse than documenting is contracting Covid. Does anyone have experience with systems that ease the pain or encourage documentation? Other than hiring technical writers for everyone on the team or adding zeroes to salaries, is there anything that can ...

I rely on email and I'm in the minority that doesn't like the new format. The old listserve format was succinct; the new formal includes a lot of cruft to scroll through to isolate the actual messages. My $0.02, with no need to adjust for inflation... Live well, laugh often, and do great things ...

We're just starting to look at VDI / DAAS as a replacement for computer labs and I was intrigued by the fact that Ryan was the only one who even mentioned Azure Virtual Desktop. I know Microsoft has been doing a lot of maturing while other companies are already well established in the space but did anybody ...
