There are no active IT issues at this time.

May 16, 2022: IT was aware that scanning to folders from some scanners was not working.  Our printer vendor (Meritech) was engaged to fix the issue.  As a workaround, users could scan to their email address as a workaround, as scanning to email was not impacted.

April 2022: IT was aware of an issue with Outlook and Teams freezing/crashing when trying to browse to attach a file to a new email/upload a file to Teams, or when trying to save an email or attachment to a network share drive.  IT Engineering investigated and worked to implement a permanent fix for this Microsoft issue.  The issue was resolved by Wednesday, May 11.  The following workarounds were recommended while the issue was being fixed.

  • Workaround #1: When you click the Attach File (paperclip) icon in a new email, you may be stuck on a "Connecting" screen that lists the path to your U:/ drive.  Some users have had success clicking "Cancel" three times, then the Browse window will finally appear and let you select the file you wish to attach.
  • Workaround #2: To prevent Outlook or Teams from freezing up when going to attach a file, do not click the “Attach File”/paperclip button in a new email.  Instead, open a folder to the G:/ drive or U:/ drive (wherever your document is saved), and click & drag it over into the new email/Teams chat message to attach it that way.  It should not freeze up using this method.
  • Workaround #3: For now, IT recommends use of the Outlook Web App: (also listed on the IT tab of the intranet, a blue icon)  This web version of Outlook does not have the same issue with attaching files as the desktop version does.  If you are looking for more stability or find that the first workarounds listed are not working, this would be a good route to go.
