We've put together a Working Remotely page specific for folks in Psychology.
UW Coronavirus Information
Consumers won't need receipts to benefit from one of Canada's largest class-action settlements... The agreement allows consumers in Canada, without receipts, to claim up to $250 for their Microsoft PC software, such as Windows, Office, Word, Excel or MS-DOS, purchased between Dec. 23, 1998 and March 11, 2010.
Microsoft seems responsive to user feature requests. You can vote for new MS Teams features at Microsoft Teams UserVoice and you'll get the occasional email when there's progress on the development.

If you haven't already, vote for these which will be useful for folks in the department:

Sign up for Two-factor authentication (2FA) before November 17th otherwise you won't be able to access many things including email, Teams, LEARN, Concur, VPN, Workday, etc.

If you run into issues and can't email call Bill x46638 or Michael x45669.

A few things people have run into:

  • When logging in to the UW VPN, enter "push" for the 2nd password to get a notification for approval on your Duo Mobile app. This might also help.
  • The UW VPN is a little unforgiving and requires that you approve the 1st 2FA request within about 10 seconds so ensure you have your phone close by when logging in to that. Otherwise, you may be locked out for 10 minutes.
  • If multiple failed 2FA attempts occur, you may be locked out for 10 minutes - this thwarts bad guys that might be trying to break in - so if you see a messge about being locked out, just wait 10 minutes.

Coming soon: How to use breakout rooms in Microsoft Teams
Here's some notes if you'd like to upgrade any non-Nexus or personal machines to the MS Office 365 ProPlus Suite of applications (Word, Excel,PowerPoint, Outlook, S4B, Teams, etc.). Nexus stations have already been upgraded.
MS O365 Cloud email details:
Psychology faculty and staff phone extensions migrated to Skype for Business (S4B) on Wednesday August 19th.

We still have a bunch of research lab extensions to migrate - email if you would like any of those done sooner rather than later.

Hey Roxane, James, Myra, Dan, and Evan!!! Renew or purchase your Matlab user licenses. Licenses are for the calendar year with a grace period extending into the following April. If you are attempting to run Matlab on non-Nexus PCs, keep in mind about Renaming User IDs. Note to self: for users to set their own path, copy "C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2014b\toolbox\loca\pathdef.m" to the user's Documents\MATLAB folder and double-click on it to start Matlab once. Subsequent times Matlab can be started in any way as it will use the last loaded path location.
