SU Tips and Tricks
Custom Themes for Google Forms At long last, we now have the ability to create custom themes in Google Forms! This means that your surveys and questionnaires can now be themed to your liking. Customizations include, headers, background images, fonts, and much more! Check out the link for a demo of this much requested new feature.
Please Wait to Update to iOS 8 Apple will release iOS 8 on Wednesday September 17th. This new version of iOS includes many great new features. However, it’s also sure to cause some problems (as do most new OS releases). Institutional Computing recommends taking a cautious approach by waiting at least a few weeks before upgrading your device. Waiting lets early adopters identify problems, gives Apple time to fix them, and gives software developers time to update their apps for iOS 8.
Two-Step Verification for Google Services Two-step verification is an additional level of security that you can turn on for your SU Google account. Two-step turns your phone into a secondary authentication device that can thwart outside attempts at logging into your email. When you (or someone else) attempts to log into your account from a computer you don't use a regular basis, Google asks for a code. These codes can either be generated by a smartphone app OR be sent to you via text. This is a great way to keep your account safe. Check out the link for more information on 2-Step Verification.
