Help Desk Relocated to 37C Lanigan

The Help Desk in 26 Lanigan will be relocated to 37C Lanigan effective Monday, 6/23, 8am.

CTS has been working with the campus Facilities, Design and Construction department to renovate the Help Desk area in 26 Lanigan.  After some months of planning and design, we are excited to say that the renovations to create a more flexible, welcoming environment for servicing our customers are ready to start!

Effective, Monday 6/23, 8am, Help Desk operations will be out of 37C Lanigan.  Signs will be posted to direct people from 26 to 37C.  It is expected that we will be able to move back into 26 Lanigan in the late July/early August timeframe.

Summer hours are:

If you are experiencing any technical issues, please take advantage of the extended hours.  We look forward to assisting you!

Shared drive and web services issues resolved

At approximately 9pm last night, CTS began receiving outage reports concerning web services such as Banner/MyOswego, and faculty shared drives.

The problem was traced to a technical issue with equipment that hosts these services. Several other services residing on said equipment were also affected this morning, including: MailMan, digital signage, and TMA.

As of 10:00 am, access to all the above-mentioned services has been restored. If you are still having problems mounting shared network drives, please reboot your computer.

Also, a belated email from MailMan likely “escaped” as that service was brought back online. We apologize for the confusion and thank everyone for being patient while we resolved these issues.

Tell Us How We Did!

Starting December 27, the Campus Technology Services (CTS) Help Desk will be sending customer satisfaction surveys to faculty, staff and students who we recently worked with to resolve a computer-related issue.

Survey recipients are chosen at random when a client’s ticket is closed.  If you should receive one of these messages, they will be emailed from help@oswego.edu with subject “Campus Technology Services survey regarding Incident <number>.”

The survey consists of five questions which should take just a few minutes to complete.  The questions are targeted at your satisfaction with the service you received.

We are always interested in hearing all levels of feedback – the good, the bad and the ugly – in order to improve our services.  Thanks in advance for providing it to us!
