Users Meeting Webinar Available

August 20, 2014

We weren't expecting the number of requests we received when we sent out the reminder for the monthly Cascade campus users' meeting yesterday and the turn out was excellent. Almost an equal number of people replied back to find out if we were going to record the session; it's not something we've done before, but clearly that's an oversight we've been needing to correct.

From this monthly meeting forward we'll be recording a Webinar and hosting it on the campus' LMS system. Our first record is now available curtesy of Kelly Crabtree (thanks again!). 

Contact us if you have any problems or questions.

Help Request Pro Tips

Technical support representative icon

August 15, 2014

If you need to submit a request for help to our ticketing system at cmshelp@ucdavis.edu, you know Jessica's going to be on the other side of your screen looking to try to help you through it.

To make the process as efficient and painless as possible, try to provide the following information with your initial email:

  • The name of the site in the CMS where you experienced the problem
  • An explanation of what you were doing or trying to accomplish when the problem occurred
  • The text from any error messages you received
  • Screen captures if you think some visual clues might help explain the problem
  • The URL of the page(s) if the issue is only showing online
