Details about this meeting:

I've deleted a lot of the old anchors that were in the minutes due to lack of updates. I suggest searching the ICC site for information that you may be looking for. Be on the lookout for a new site within the coming months.

Videoconferencing and WAN discussion

Videoconferencing topics (previous discussion)

I'm not sure if I'm alone in this, but the TMS agent seems to be missing when the address is entered (400 error). I emailed Patrick Pettus but he didn't answer if this is a permanent problem.

Skype Business for Mac has updates that should install using your Microsoft Autoupdater.



Content Management System (CMS) (previous discussion)

IFAS Extension has migrated to T4 and the extension office sites are migrating by February. So far, if you still need logical forms or calendar integration, you have to use something else. (Such as Gravity Forms or Google Calendar (not vetted).

Updates as available.

Last month's IT@UF Meeting Notes

You can now view the notes from each meeting at this link. This past month's meeting was cancelled.

ITSA Policy and UF IT Policy

I've found it difficult to find the ITSA Computing Policy and the UF IT Policies, so I will provide the links here and keep them here.

ITSA - http://imm.ifas.ufl.edu

UF IT - http://www.it.ufl.edu/policies/

There will now be an ICC Policy Page that will keep track of policy and guidelines. These are not strict rules meant to dictate what must be done, but instead, a page of policies that are meant to help keep things running smoothly for each department and ITSA. You can find it here.

ITPAC is still setting up a meeting to go over policies. I will update that as it comes along.

Andrew Carey provided a link to fixing incorrectly named devices. You can find it here.



We are currently working on a new ICC site and integration of Yammer. Stay Tuned! The new site is planning on using Microsoft Teams, pending the outcome of the software policy exception being brought forth to the ITPAC members.


IFAS IT Updates (previous discussion)

We're going to have our first ICC Windows Insider seminar! (starts at the 29:40 mark on the video)
