Work smarter postit, laptop and papers

Have you ever felt there were better ways you could use IT to assist with your work? That there must be some tool out there to do that thing that takes up so much of your time? That if only you could talk to other administrators to find out what they do?

If so then you will be pleased to hear that IT Services has put up a site full of advice and with a place for you to share your own short cuts and tips. This was a result of an internship over the summer, where over 30 administrators from UAS, departments, and colleges were interviewed to find out what areas they really needed help on related to general IT use, and any good tips they have that they were willing to share.

The Admin IT Forum site is open to any member of the University (via SSO)

In this you will find a guide based around tasks commonly undertaken by administrative staff (also available as single printable documents). An area to share tips and advice (just start a ‘new discussion’ to post your idea) already populated with handy suggestions. And rather than keep revisiting it you can set up the‘alert me’ feature.
