This is a guide to software used by staff and faculty.
We use G Suite for email, calendar, docs, spreadsheets, presentations, and file storage. Specific apps include:
- Google Calendar
- Google Docs
- Google Sheets (spreadsheets)
- Google Slides (presentations)
- Google Drive (file storage and sharing)
- Google Keep (notes)
These are all available at no cost to departments. While Microsoft Office 365 is also available for use at no cost, G Suite is still our official and recommended office suite.
We recommend SmartSheet, which is in use in a number of departments on campus. There was a time when ITS managed an account that was available for use by college employees. But their licensing model no longer offers any advantage to maintaining a campuswide account. Therefore, individual departments can setup their own SmartSheet accounts based on their specific needs and budget. Microsoft Project is also an option. Neither of these are free.
