  • Office 365 can likely do much more than you are aware of.
    • The Office 365 button on the left has information on the many apps that are available. Even if you are not on your computer you can access Word, Excel, PowerPoint and many more applications.
      • Once there you can click on the tab with information about remotely viewing the campus directory. We encourage you to update your information.
      • Another tab contains information on how you can install Office 365 on non-DelVal computers. Most Office 365 applications also have an app available. Look for Microsoft apps on the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
    • Office 365 Calendar - Keep your calendar up to date and use it to efficiently schedule meetings with colleagues.
    • We encourage you to:
      • consider moving departmental files that need to be shared from the X drive to an Office 365 team site so the files can be accessed from anywhere without needing a VPN connection.
      • consider moving your personal files to OneDrive so they are synced and available across multiple devices.

    • Using EC500

  • Ways to keep your phone number private
    • You can use Zoom to schedule meetings instead of just calling out.
    • You can set up a forwarding and have the other party call your office phone but answer on your personal phone.
    • Some cell phones have the ability to block caller ID. This can be different for everyone and you may have to look up instructions or reach out to your carrier.
    • Entering *67 before entering the phone number may block your number. We recommend you try this with a coworker. Also, please check with your mobile or landline provider to make sure you are not charged for this service.
