RESOLVED: Dialling NHS numbers at Ninewells

We are currently dealing with an issue at Ninewells campus where University IP phones are unable to dial NHS phone numbers, normally users would dial a number with a preceding ‘2’ to connect.

This issue is being dealt with as a top priority and we will keep this post updated with any progress. We are tracking this issue with reference number 1905-2396.


Generating usernames in different format for new staff

The University’s staff account creation process is scheduled to change on Tue 14 May. Usernames generated for new staff joining us will have a different format (combination of name and unique number) from then on.

A similar change was applied to the student account creation process earlier in the year, so you will start to see students arrive with different username formats (reflect matriculation / student ID numbers) too – some are already here and studying with us.

If you are a current student or staff member with the old format of username, your email address will be unaffected.

Read the project page to find out what the new username formats are and why these changes were necessary.

Resolved: Access to SITS

We are recording this incident with reference number 1905-1054 and will update this post with progress.
