Google Drive Security Update on July 26
Posted by Adam Newsted on July 22, 2021

On July 26, 2021, Google will send direct email notifications to WMU Google users who own or manage files impacted by a security update that will change links (URLs) for files shared in 2017 and prior. The email will provide instructions on steps to take and will include a link to view a list of impacted files you own or manage in Google Drive (My Drive/Shared Drive). Individuals may be impacted when trying to view these files on websites (public or internal) or posted elsewhere if the instructions are not followed. You will not receive an email if you are not impacted.

Desk phones should not be moved without guidance
Posted by Gary Barton on July 1, 2021

Desk phones should not be moved to other offices or plugged into different network jacks without submitting a move request or consulting with a telephone service representative first.


WMU Public Safety is provided with the installation locations of each telephone instrument. While it is technically possible to relocate a telephone from one active jack to another, doing so will result in Public Safety having erroneous location data for the telephone, with the possible consequence of not being able to locate a caller in the case of an emergency.

See full details of the WMU Telephone Instrument Relocation Requirements.

For more information on moving your desk phone, visit Help Hub or call (269) 387-4357.
