Laptops2Go at Wright State
Laptops2Go is a program that allows students in good standing to "checkout" a computer with their Wright1Card for 4 hours. Located on the 2nd Floor of Dunbar Library, Laptops2Go allows you to choose whether you want a Mac or a PC in order to best serve your needs as a student. If you need the laptop for longer than the initial 4 hours, the computers can be "renewed" for an extra 4 hours.
Services Grid Now Available in Office 365 Outlook Web App
As announced in a previous message to the university, Microsoft has now updated the Office 365 Outlook Web App to include a services grid. This grid, located in the upper left corner of the Outlook Web App, provides a drop down menu list of all services available to you within Office 365.
In order to access your email, calendar or other Office 365 tools, you can click on the icon displayed in the drop-down menu. If you want to pin an icon to your toolbar, you will need to click on the three dots at the top of the icon. The pinned icon will appear on your toolbar in the upper right hand corner for one-click access.
If you have any questions about this change, please contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775- 4827 or email at email@example.com.
Current Issues with Office 365 Sites Service
Currently, the Office 365 Sites service is experiencing intermittent
access issues. Users who are members or owners of an Office 365 site may
receive an error stating "Sorry, you don't have access to this page"
when attempting to visit that site. Some users have found success by
logging out and then back in to the Office 365 Sites service. Microsoft
is aware of this issue and is working on a resolution. Please direct all
questions or concerns to the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827, or toll

Malware Downloaded from Seemingly Clean Office Documents
Bitdefender is warning Microsoft Office users of a new spam campaign that resembles a tax return, a remittance, or form of bill from a bank. The spam often carries a Microsoft Word or Excel attachment that will automatically execute a piece of malware with a macro code disguised to bypass traditional antivirus if downloaded.

Announcing Office 365 Sites at Wright State
On January 26, 2015, Office 365 Sites will become publicly available to all university faculty, staff, and students. Office 365 Sites are online communities supporting university organizations, projects and other Wright State-related functions. Within these Office 365 sites/communities, you can then share files, calendars, and other important information with any other members of the site, just as you may have in the past with WINGS Group Studio.
Office 365 Sites are a great choice if you want to share information for longer periods of time. For example, you may want to create an Office 365 site for your department, college, or committee.
To browse available sites for membership, or to request your own site, simply log in to your Office 365 Outlook Web App (the online version of your email, calendar, etc.) and click on the “Sites” button on the top toolbar.
To learn more about Office 365 sites, including information on how to request a site, see our documentation website available at
