Anti-Racist Terminology in IT
Over the last several weeks, the information technology industry has been pushing to change industry-specific words that are either racist or at risk of being perceived as racist. UCCS OIT has been closely working with several vendors to identify and change any words that are not inclusive. Once the complete set of words has been identified and changed, more information will be sent. To leave feedback, please submit to uccs.io/oitfeedback.
Turning Data into Action
We all have data, but what do you do with it once it’s collected? Not sure how to turn it into actionable information that can help move your department forward?
Join the Office of Information Technology’s Business Intelligence Team for Bytes, as they show you how your data can be turned into informative and usable insights. This hour-long session on July 7 will showcase some of the more popular information collected to date such as computer lab usage, student success metrics, and WiFi, allow for questions, and provide the next steps on how to work with the Business Intelligence Team.
Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to participate during the session from 2-3 p.m. in the Bytes Team channel.

Existing Planner tabs will behave the same as they do today but will show an additional list view. Users will be able to add new Tasks tabs to the channels in teams they belong to. Users can also access the Tasks app in the same ways they previously accessed the Planner app.
