SharePoint 2013 Upgrade
CTS-Networking will be upgrading SharePoint to the latest version (SharePoint 2013) on
Friday, Dec. 27, from 5-7 p.m.
Here's some of what you'll find after the upgrade:
- Enhanced user interface
- Improved search capability
- Increased performance
- Full cross-browser functionality
What you need to do: Nothing, except not use Sharepoint between 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 27.
Security Timeout Changes
In July, CTS implemented a number of security measures, including a 10-minute screensaver timeout on computers used by faculty and staff to help protect data from being accessed if a computer is left unattended.
We've asked for and gotten some great feedback on this measure, and based on the suggestions we received, we're increasing the time to lockout from 10 minutes to 15 minutes on Friday, Dec. 6.
Windows Updates: How They Will Affect You
CTS is changing the Windows Update time from the second Tuesday of each month to the third Wednesday of each month. Why? The change allows us to more closely monitor the updates and comply with campus data security initiatives.
Tell us what you think!

This is the first of many new communications CTS will be sharing with the campus in the upcoming months. Please let us know what you think of it and what topics you would like us to cover.
Best wishes from all of us in CTS as we move through finals week and into the holiday season.
