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.

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.

This is getting closer to fruition. Teams is now being used by several of us, though we have barely scratched the surface. Stay tuned!

ICC Retreat

The ICC Retreat will officially be held at the Straughn Center on June 1st. From 8am-3pm. We will have pastries, bagels and coffee served for breakfast and have a BBQ catered lunch. There will be seminar presentations given all day, in 45-60 minute increments along with demonstrations given by Dell and Microsoft. As we get closer to finalizing the schedule, we will send out the itinerary to the ICC via Yammer.


IFAS IT Updates (previous discussion)

ITSA is very happy about the TEAMs environment. Dewayne wants to make sure everyone is testing the new imaging task sequence.

2-Factor-Authentication: If you are in Gainesville, you can get the key fob from the Help Desk. If you have someone in your off-campus location, they can create a ticket to requst a fob. The IFAS Help Desk will have some tokens available and they will ship it out. (prefer to ship to the IT person as opposed to the person requesting the token(fob)). The serial number, ticket number and gatorlink will be on file for each token. The help desk should be notified when the token is received so that it can be activated.

Saira is working with Zoom on an Enterprise license. We should know more by May (when are current license runs out).


Other Topics

UF IT Updates

Peer2Peer, held on March 22nd, was a success! Our own DeWayne Hyatt will be presenting on the IFAS Implementation of SCCM and there will be a presentation about JAMF, for those who are interested, along with several other important topics.

Mark Minasi gave a two-day seminar (April 5-6 at Emerson Hall, Room 209) that was an amazing success. The attendance was full and it was hands-on, dealing with Powershell and Active Directory. Several of our IFAS IT people were there. This was the very last Minasi seminar ever to be given.
