Confluence
February 28th 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

We have recently been migrating many of our paper processes to a program called Confluence.  Confluence is a simple, powerful wiki that allows groups or departments to share information. (A wiki is a website that lets people collaborate and share information quickly).  It is organized into collaboration areas called spaces which contain pages, attachments, and other types of content that can be viewed and edited by users.   

Our ITS Knowledgebase (http://confluence.ptsem.edu/display/ITSKnowledge/Home) , PTS Catalogue, PTS Handbook, and most recently pages within our Inside PTS Website (https://inside.ptsem.edu/Landing/Employee.aspx) are all being powered by Confluence.  We would like to invite anyone who is responsible for editing any of the materials mentioned above in Confluence to attend an introductory training session that will teach you some tips and tricks for adding and editing content within the program.

In order to facilitate more effective transfers of large files and more accessible file sharing over the web, Information Technology Services is pleased to offer Filr.  Using Filr, employees will have access to their personal files (home drives), scan files and department folders, from off-campus without the use of VPN.  Because Filr is a cloud storage solution, you can use it to access your files from any location with an internet connection -- on your phone, tablet or laptop/computer – again, all without the use of VPN.

In addition, a desktop version of Filr is now available which enables seamless updating of files shared with you.  You can synchronize your Filr files with your computer, and then modify the files without accessing the Filr site directly. Additions, modifications, and other actions are synchronized between Filr and your computer.
