What should I do with my empty crate?

  • The Gibson Building – please stack them in one area of the common room, so that the meeting rooms can get back to normal
  • RPC – please stack them in the atrium (where CTU crates are at the moment.)

We need to have them all emptied and gathered for collection by end of Friday 12 April.

How do I do a DSE assessment?

Given the large amount of assessments needed following the move, each member of staff moving will be emailed asking them to conduct an online Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessment.

There is likely to be a delay in sending these emails.

My phone says "Enter terminal number", what should I do?

1. The phone will boot up and the screen will flash “enter Terminal Number” when ready. This process may take up to 10 minutes.
 
2. Key in your full telephone number in one of the following formats:
    44186527xxxx
    44186528xxxx
    44186561xxxx
 
Make sure you key in the correct number; entering a wrong number will require a factory reset for the phone.
Once you’re sure you have entered the correct number, press the OK button. If you accidentally enter the wrong number, see instructions below.
 
3. Wait for the phone to automatically configure. This could take up to 30 minutes: once the display shows the date and extension number it is ready to use.
 
4. Make a test call to 10888, which will read your number back to you.  If you can’t make a call, contact the Chorus team via the Service Desk on (01865 6) 12345 or help@it.ox.ac.uk
 
If you enter the number incorrectly:
​​Follow these steps to perform a factory reset of the Unify phone:

  • 3. You will be prompted to enter a Factory Reset PIN.  Enter 124816 then hit OK.  The phone will take a couple of minutes to reset, and will prompt you for the terminal number when it's rebooted.

I can't get any network connection

This is likely to be a cabling issue.

Please check that your ethernet cable is connected into the back of the PC and the network port is connected to the floor.

You may need to try a different network port on the floor, if there is another one available. 

For further support fixing cable issues, check: https://help.it.ox.ac.uk/helpcentre/troubleshooting/intro/index

Otherwise, please contact Russell Dean for support.
