Welcome Back SU!

SU Tips and Tricks

Excel/Sheets Functions -CountIf/SumIf/AverageIf
CountIf, SumIf and AverageIf are three very useful Excel/Google Sheets functions to know how to use. When used properly, these functions allow you to count/sum/average totals if a certain criteria is met. For instance, if you had a large spreadsheet with Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior Data, you could easily count/sum/average any type of data that is affiliated with each year.  For more information, check out the link for a quick YouTube video showcasing all these formulas.
New Blackboard is Here
Just a reminder...Everyone must access Bb from...

If you encounter someone who says that their password isn't working and they can't login, it is likely that they are attempting to login to the old website.
Also, if you use the Bb Mobile App, you will need to change a setting to reflect the new Bb website for SU.  Here are the steps to get connected.

1.Start the app
2.Click Bb icon in upper left corner
3.In the search box, start typing Shenandoah
4.Select Shenandoah University-hosted
5.Type in username/password
How To Manage Your Privacy Settings on iOS
App permissions are something that we should all pay attention to, but we rarely read the list of permissions or remember what we gave an app permission to access. You can gain valuable insight into what you gave apps permission to by checking out the privacy settings on iOS. Click the link to check out a great article on how to manage your privacy settings in iOS and make sure that you are only giving up the information that you are comfortable sharing!
