Power up

Are you making plans to head back to campus after working remotely for the last several months? Here are a few things you need to do to make sure your computer, voicemail and other technology is ready for the transition back to the office.

Computer Updates

Computers that have been turned off or used off campus for several months may need updates to be installed on the FSU network. Before you officially return to campus to work, consider setting aside time to go to your office, connect to an FSU network (FSUSecure) and sign in to your computer to allow time for updates to run. Updates and system checks could take several hours, and devices may need to restart.
