End of Year Activities
New Devices: What to Expect
- After you receive your device and have signed in to it, applications will download to the device over a few hours. If it's been a while and you still don't have important applications (such as Chrome), please restart your device while connected to your docking station.
- If you have specific applications that you use and need to download, you will have to put in a Help Desk ticket so we can push the application out to you. In the ticket system, please select Staff > Account/Application > Intune Requests > Application Request.
- The new set up is designed for flexibility. You can remove your laptop from the docking station to work in a different location or connect to your projector.
- If you are having issues with your monitor not recognizing your device, please check your connections to be sure the monitor is connected to the correct input. Only the Display Port should be connected from your monitor to the docking station, not the Display Port and the USB-C cables.
- Please reboot your device daily for the first week. Doing so will help with updates and ensuring your device works optimally.
