Spring 2024 IT Update for the Community

Greetings all,

I hope the Spring semester is off to a great start for everyone. I'm writing to provide some notable updates from IT:

Phone system replacement

As I shared in the fall, the College is moving to Zoom for its office phone system. At the time of this writing, several hundred College numbers have already transitioned to the service, so far relatively smoothly and with a positive reception. Once your College-issued number has been moved to Zoom, you can receive calls at that number on any device on which you install the Zoom software, including your computer/laptop, mobile device, and tablet. You'll also have much better control over when and on which devices your phone rings, from whom you accept calls, and more, all from within the Zoom software interface most are already familiar with. While we're a little behind schedule on this transition, we're on track to have most College numbers moved to Zoom this academic year. Please watch your email and the Daily Mammoth for information about when your number will be moved.
