Duo

Duo Mobile App

Duo Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is easy to use with the Duo Mobile application. You can use the Duo Push authentication method with your smart device to quickly authenticate to campus systems. If you’re not using the Duo mobile app we recommend that you install it from your app store and switch to this convenient authentication method. You can select “remember me” in the app to stay signed in for up to three days.

If you are currently using the Call Me option you can switch to Duo Push the next time you’re prompted for Duo authentication. Once prompted you can enter your credentials, then click Settings to add a new device, select Mobile phone, enter your phone number, and you’ll receive a text message with activation information. More information about using the mobile app is available at https://support.csuchico.edu/TDClient/1984/Portal/KB/ArticleDet?ID=42411.

If you’re already using Duo Push please help your coworkers make the switch and join our “Push to Push.”

Adobe

Adobe Stock

Adobe Stock is now available as part of the campus Adobe Creative Cloud suite. Adobe Stock is a collection of high-quality images, graphics, vectors, and videos. All current campus Creative Cloud users now have access to Adobe Stock. Employees and students that don’t currently have Creative Cloud can request access. More information about requesting and accessing Adobe Stock is available at https://support.csuchico.edu/TDClient/1984/Portal/KB/ArticleDet?ID=113260

Adobe

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe Creative Cloud is available to all CSU, Chico employees and students. This suite of software includes Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, Illustrator, and more. You can request access to Adobe Creative Cloud in the Service Catalog.

We recommend that faculty requiring Adobe Creative Cloud software for their classes request their class roster be assigned Creative Cloud access as soon as possible. This will allow students to have access to the software more quickly.  

Wireless

Eduroam Wireless Change

Beginning at noon today (Tuesday August 3rd) campus Eduroam wireless will be reconfigured to provide a quicker and easier setup. For most devices you will be able to connect directly to Eduroam for setup and when prompted, log in with your email address (not just your username) and password. Client installation will no longer be necessary.

Existing campus Eduroam wireless configurations will stop working once this change is implemented. Wireless devices will need to use the new, simpler setup to get reconnected to campus wireless. The Eduroam Wireless documentation has been updated with instructions for the new setup.

Campus Eduroam Wireless Configuration

Links to support pages for the transition will be distributed closer to the cutover time – those instructions will not be valid until the change is made at noon on Tuesday, August 3rd.

Portal

Campus Portal Updates

We are updating the Campus Portal to provide you with personalized, less cluttered, and more relevant information. This is a large change so we are breaking it into three steps. The end goal is to have relevant information for you available on one to two tabs instead of across four, five, or more. “Less is more.”

We are excited as this begins efforts to make the Portal dynamic, bringing “the right information to the right person at the right time.”

Step 1: July 15th

  • Expand the footer with relevant links that belong on every page.
    • This includes links to important systems like E-Mail, Student Resources, Zoom, Blackboard, and Health and Safety information.
  • Remove three tabs: Campus Apps & Links, Early Start Students, and Campus Safety.
  • Implement more granular data about a person’s role at the campus.
    • For example, if you were a student that graduated 10 years ago and are now working as an employee you probably don’t need to see all of the links for current students as you do in the Portal today. How about we just show you information relevant to employees and a link to look up your transcript?

Step 2: July 20th

  • Remove the “Home” tabs and replace with a “My Portal” tab.
    • Currently there are Student Home, Faculty Home, Staff Home, and State Employee tabs. We are condensing all of these into a single tab called “My Portal.”
    • You will see information and links relevant to you based on your role on campus. For example, most of what is currently in the “Student Home” tab will show up in “My Portal” for students and information in the “State Employee” tab will show up in “My Portal” for Employees. If you are both student and employee you will see both sets of information.

Step 3: July 29th

  • Add dynamic “My Updates” tab.
    • This tab will have dynamic information relevant to you in real time. Employees will see a list of trainings to which they are currently assigned. Students will see relevant information about enrollment with a link to the Student Center as well as trainings.
  • Remove Admissions & Orientation and My Accounts tabs.
    • Information from these tabs will be shown in “My Portal.”
  • Add “Customize” tab.
    • This tab will allow you to customize your “My Portal” tab as you see fit. Need a link to Zoom? This is where you can add it. Want to get rid of information you don’t need? Links to knowledge base articles on how to do that will be on this tab.
