Zimbra FAQ Workshop for CAS Administrative Assistants

On October 21, Ben Jezierski, Training Coordinator of Information Technology, conducted a workshop for Administrative Assistants in the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) entitled ‘Zimbra Frequently Asked Questions.’  Our Administrative Assistants have been using Zimbra for a while; but still had questions about Zimbra that this workshop would answer. The workshop was the latest of a series of professional development technology workshops for CAS Administrative Assistants organized by Lorraine Hannon and Anne Szewczyk of the CAS Dean’s Office.

The topics covered include: zooming in, spell check, dictionary, return receipts, saved drafts, autosave function, mailboxes, having email and calendar open simultaneously, organization of emails, the Find function, playing a sound when new email arrives, attachment, briefcase, filters, resending old email, creating subfolders, having Zimbra up all day, etc. The participants were very pleased with the coverage of the workshop. Many of them commented that the Zimbra FAQ session was very helpful and that they are looking forward to our future scheduled sessions on Excel and PowerPoint.  The handouts from the workshop can be downloaded from the CAS Administrative Assistants Blackboard site.
