Hey there, welcome aboard! As you already know, we’re pretty excited to have you join the team here at Heritage. And we have high hopes about your partnership in our continuing mission to equip men and women for life and ministry. Here are a few things that will help you get started.
You have a Heritage account and a myHeritage account. They are two different things. I know, we were very original about the naming of these accounts.
- Heritage account – This is the account that is tied to your email and will grant you access to most computers on campus. It is made up of the username/email and password that you were given by your manager when you started. It will also grant you access to a number of other systems; office computers, your email, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Teams, printers, etc.
- myHeritage account – myHeritage (the developer is Populi) is the system that keeps track of our student records, handles course and program details, manages student billing and donations, and is also a learning management system.
These are useful articles on how to add an email account to a Smartphone (if desired) and how to connect to a printer from any of the Windows 10 workstations. MacOS users, please see the IT Manager.
There are two wireless networks available on-campus. The first is a public access network for use by our students and guests for general access to the internet. The second is our secured network for use by our staff and faculty that provides direct access to our server infrastructure and faster upload speeds. Details are below.
- Name: Heritage. Open network, needs no password.
- Name: Heritage Staff. Closed network. See the IT Manager for access.
- I would encourage you to check out Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft Teams through your corporate Office 365 subscription. Navigate to http://office.heritagecs.edu and login with your Heritage account. From there, you can jump off to any of the Office 365 apps. OneDrive provides you with 1TB of cloud storage and can be setup to synchronize files between your computer and the cloud. We use Microsoft Teams for inter-office chat and team collaboration on projects. There are iOS and Android apps for both OneDrive and Teams.
- Your Home drive. When you login to a Windows-based computer, your home drive will automatically mount. The H: drive is a spot on the server where you can store your own personal files that only you have access to. In some cases, the primary Documents, Desktop, Photos, etc. directories point to these same folders on the server. Access to your Home drive can be setup for MacOS users with a quick trip to see the IT Manager.
- File storage and collaboration is handled by our file servers. One of the main locations for this is the Staff Drive, which will be mounted automatically when you log in to a Windows-based computer. For Mac users, please see the IT Manager to get set up.
