Faculty and staff can now upgrade their personal and University Mac computers to the newest OS X Yosemite 10.10 operating system. Unfortunately our Lotus Notes license does not allow for any new installations, so any new Macs that do not already have Lotus Notes installed will not be able to install the Lotus Notes client in order to use the Time Off calendar. If your Mac already has Lotus Notes client installed and you upgrade, Lotus Notes will continue to work. If you are currently using the Lotus Notes Time Off calendar and you need to submit a time off request, contact the person who processes your payroll, they or your manager have the ability to create a request for you. There is no problem with using a computer with Yosemite on the wireless network anymore.
If you have questions or need any assistance in regards to this upgrade for university computers, contact TAC at TAC@ferris.edu or at 231-591-4822 or toll free at 877-779-4822. If you need assistance upgrading your personal computer, please take it to STS located in University Center 108.
