How to remove yourself from an Office 365 group

If you wish to leave a group (like the BCC film processors), there is a simple way that you can do this yourself instead of emailing the entire group.

If you access Outlook through a web browser:

On the left you should see groups>BCC Film Processors, click on the group name. That will open up the group and you can see any messages etc. Once again click on the group name and that will bring up details of the group. You should see three dots … click on those dots. That will open up a drop down menu with leave group as one of the choices. You could also choose to remain a member of the group and deselect follow in inbox.

If you access outlook through your desktop, it’s a very similar process, but looks slightly different.

Thanks to Michelle Varney for these instructions.

Setting up Duo for offsite access

We are still getting a lot of questions about Duo.  I wanted to point out, because it’s unclear in the campus instructions that if you already have Duo setup and working for Firefly, you don’t need to load Duo again.  You ONLY need to add the certificate for offsite access.  The steps are below:
On your computer, ̶w̶h̶i̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶c̶a̶m̶p̶u̶s̶: (not your phone)
Log in at appstore.unmc.edu.

On the left, choose Nebraska Medicine
Then in the main column, choose OPEN next to
Enroll/Manage DUO Account

At this screen, sign in

Choose an authentication method (whichever currently works for your Duo) and then once you are in, choose Device Options and then Reactivate Duo Mobile, choose your phone type and Continue
Next, choose I have Duo installed
Go to the Duo App on your phone now and when it’s open, click the + on the top row.  Point your phone camera at the QR code showing on your computer and it will add the certificate you need for offsite access.

Making a shortcut to the NMR Data Folder

There are many times working with an enterprise network, when it’s beneficial or necessary to make a shortcut to a network resource on your desktop.  Common examples of this would be a shortcut to a lab folder or a shared application like Prism.

To make a new shortcut or link:

right click shortcut

Create a new link on your desktop by right-clicking an empty spot and then choose new, then shortcut.

In the box that says, Type the location of the item, enter the full path to where you NMR data is stored. The paths are listed below.

The Paths to the NMR Data are:
400 Data
\\epp1.unmc.medforest.org\labs\nmr\NMR400Data2020

500 Data
\\epp1.unmc.medforest.org\labs\nmr\NMR500Data2020

600 Data
\\epp1.unmc.medforest.org\labs\nmr\NMR600Data2020



After you hit next, it asks for a name for the shortcut, which you can leave alone unless you have a name that works better for you.

Then click finish

Mapping the NMR data drive

To map a drive manually:

If this is not something you are comfortable doing, please enlist the help of your IT support person. They can use the Paths listed below and help you map a network drive or create a shortcut.

Open Windows Explorer ….

+ E, will open Windows Explorer

and then one of the three options listed here should get you to the Map network drive dialogue

1. From the Tools menu, choose Map Network Drive.

(You may need to hit the Alt key to see the Tools menu.)

2. Look under Home, Easy Access

#. Look under Computer, Map Network drive

Once you are in the Map Network Drive dialogue, Choose a drive letter and then type in the path of the share you are mapping to.

If you want this drive to be there each time you log into the computer, check the box that says Reconnect at logon.

The Paths to the NMR Data are:
400 Data
\\epp1.unmc.medforest.org\labs\nmr\NMR400Data2020

500 Data
\\epp1.unmc.medforest.org\labs\nmr\NMR500Data2020

600 Data
\\epp1.unmc.medforest.org\labs\nmr\NMR600Data2020

There is also an option here that says, Connect using different credentials.  This is used when you are using a machine that’s logged in as one ID and need to make a connection that requires a different ID for security reasons.  For example, using a computer connected to a common instrument you often use a generic shared ID to log into the machine, but then you can map a drive to your lab files from there using your own ID.  In this case, you never want to check the box that says Reconnect at login, because that would make it so anyone who uses that machine has access to your files.

NEW LOOK FOR OFFICE 365 LOGIN PAGE

May 6, 2019 – from Campus

Our Information Technology Department is constantly looking for opportunities to improve the experience for Nebraska Medicine and UNMC colleagues, including increased mobile compatibility and access from off the network. This week, a new off-network login page for Office 365, which includes Microsoft Outlook, Teams and One Drive, will be rolled out across the organization. Your log in information will not change.

The current login page looks like this, both on and off the network. It will continue to look like this on UNMC and Nebraska Medicine network. You may use either your full email address or network ID and password.

When you access Office 365 off network, the new login page will look like this. You will use only your network ID and password to sign in.

After you enter your network ID, you will be redirected to a second page to type your password.
