To quickly outline some the IT Status service capabilities:
- IT Status shows a quick systems update in the upper right corner of the OIT Home Page (https://oit.rice.edu). The dot next to IT Status indicates the overall health of campus IT systems and you can see if there are scheduled items or current issues. You can see more details by clicking on the links.
- You can check current or planned outages any time without waiting for an email message by going to the web page, https://status.rice.edu.
- The tool also permits you to subscribe and unsubscribe to specific services. For example, you may be interested in knowing what is going on with Canvas but not interested in seeing is what is happening with Edgar (or vice versa)
- You can receive updates in your areas of choice via email, text messages, or Atom or RSS feeds. Use the “Subscribe to Updates” button in upper right corner to set this up. Initially, as an OIT-Alerts member, you will receive updates to all services but, as stated previously, you can unsubscribe to items that don’t interest you.
