Administrators & Staff
Need feedback on a presentation? Trying to figure out the best meeting time? Want to know who can attend your event? Try creating a Google form to send to your participants and gather information. Responses are automatically collected in Google Drive.
Before you begin, note that you can't have multiple Gmail accounts open when using Forms.
To get started:
If you're visiting another university for a major event such as commencement, be sure to check if the institution is an eduroam (education roaming) participant. If it is, you can enjoy free and secure wireless access during your visit without the need to obtain login credentials for that specific institution. Local participating institutions include Bryn Mawr College, Drexel University, Penn State and the University of Pennsylvania.
You had a productive evening working on a final paper that's due tomorrow. You have all your citations, just finished a conclusion and saved the work to your laptop. Time to make a back-up!
Don't risk losing all of your hard work on the chance that your computer develops a problem and won't start in the morning. Use Temple's FREE cloud-based storage options to upload a copy of the paper so you have a back-up.
It's that time of year when many Temple faculty and staff are out of the office to enjoy some time off. Let your colleagues and coworkers know when you're not available by setting up automatic email and phone notifications.
Hackers use all kinds of tricks to try and learn valuable information about you. Just last week a phishing email made the rounds at Temple disguised as a Security Update.
So what should you do to keep your information safe?
