Good news for Mac users regarding My LINC

We are proud to announce that after working closely with the My LINC vendor, SumTotal, updates were made to improve Mac users’ interaction with My LINC.

ITS testing with the following OS/browser combinations shows Mac users can now access My LINC without using Citrix:
-- OS X 10.5 (Leopard) with Safari 3.0
-- OS X 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard) with Safari 4.0

My LINC (Learning & Information Center) is a Web-based training and documentation repository for HRD, ITS, Procurement, and Treasurer’s Office. U-M employees use My LINC to register for instructor-led courses, access eLearning training, and view system documentation.

Please share this information with Mac users in your unit.

Note: There are a very small number of older simulations in some courses that may not work with Macs. If users experience problems with these simulations, please have them use Citrix.

Share Unit-Specific WebI Reports With Unit Users

BusinessObjects users can now share WebI Intelligence reports with others in their unit. The service that provides this capability is called Department Access Administration (DAA). It allows the U-M unit to determine which reports it wishes to place in their “Unit Maintained Folder” and control who has access to them. Please feel free to share this information with others in your unit who may wish to take advantage of this new service.

For details about Department Access Administration, including how you can request a folder for your unit, view:

-- The “Unit Maintained Folder in BusinessObjects” document in the UL Document Repository.
-- A presentation, including a demo, given by Laura Bollettino at a recent UL meeting. Information about the Unit-Maintained Folder begins at 8:39 on the video.
