What do I need to work remotely?

...

Use this service to reach your personal F: drive or any department drives you have access to (listed in either O: or G:)

Note, if there is any sensitive information contained in the files, please use CloudPC instead. 

Tip: Working within CloudPC allows you to access and edit network drive files without the need to download and upload through MyFiles. See Working With Network Drive Files in CloudPC for more information.

Tip: If you download files to work on at home, remember to periodically upload those files back to the network drive you got it from, so the network drive has a current copy. 

CloudPC

There are many software services available in CloudPC, including the Office suite.

...

You may have heard of Google Voice, another Google service that allows you to both place and receive audio calls. Unfortunately, this service is not available on the Drew domain (nor is it free!). 

Offering Virtual Appointment Slots

Google has an option to add "appointment slots" to your calendar, with a link you can share for those interested in scheduling time with you. Check out Google's instructions at https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/190998?hl=en, and reach out to the Helpdesk (contact information at the bottom of the page!) if you have any questions.

Review Geek also published an article with suggestions for audio and video quality on these calls.

Chat

We recommend Google Chat, a Google service available in your Drew Google account, for speaking with your colleagues while working remotely.
