HR Items of Interest
2.) Annual Employee Data Verification
Each fall, HR works with Academic Affairs, Payroll and Institutional Research to ensure employee data files are up-to-date and accurate, preparatory to developing our annual employee extract file used to support a variety of internal and external reports. An annual employee data verification email was sent to all regular-status faculty, staff and administrators on Oct. 2. If information needs to be updated, please take the corrective steps listed in the email.
Additional Information: Human Resources, 852-6258.

Information Technology
3.) Tech Tip: Use Bcc for group email
When sending email to a group please use the Bcc as it prevents each recipient from seeing or replying to all of the other recipients on the list. To use Bcc open the address book by clicking the “To” or “Cc” button and then add desired addresses to the Bcc field. You can permanently show Bcc by clicking the Options tab inside the message window and selecting Bcc from the Show Fields menu.
Additional Information: Contact the IT HelpDesk, 852-7997.

Miscellaneous
4.) Blackboard courses from summer and fall 2012 to be archived, deleted
Blackboard courses from summer and fall 2012 will be archived and then deleted after Nov. 4. This is a semi-annual process by the Delphi Center that frees up server space for new courses. If you have a specific need to keep a summer or fall 2012 course available beyond Nov. 4, please submit a request by that date. Additional information on this process can be found in the Blackboard News module on the login page.
