MyFurman Changes

When you logged into MyFurman last week, you probably noticed something a little different…

ITS rolled out an update to the MyFurman website on March 8.  Changes include a new login screen, a more concise ARMS menu, and a separate “People Search” search bar that allows you to enter a name and pull up a member of the Furman community’s contact information instead of accessing the directory.

The email button also now recognizes that you’ve already logged in, and no longer needs you to enter your ID and password.

Questions about MyFurman?  Don’t hesitate to contact ITS at 2943277, service.center@furman.edu, or on twitter @furman_its!

ITS will resume the normal training classes this fall, but the variety, flexibility and detail offered in these videos are a great option for many faculty and staff.

New Blogging Server

Welcome, this is the new blogs server. If you have accessed blogs.furman.edu in the past, you may see some significant changes in both look and functionality. If you have any trouble accessing or using this system, please contact the ITS service center at 294-3277.

During this upgrade we have removed a number of older, incompatible themes and replaced them with a smaller number of flexible, customizable themes. If you administer a blog and would like help in editing one of the existing themes or loading a specific theme, please contact the ITS service center at the number above with your request.
