On May 29, 2018, IT will implement a new login process which may affect your access to services and applications
You may have noticed a link to “UCANR Active Directory (Beta test)” on the UC ANR Portal login page. The link was a test of our effort to manage staff computing credentials which are separate from UC Davis and other campuses. We created this new process in support of UC's transition to a new personnel system called UC Path. This system is scheduled to launch for UC ANR in March, 2019.
Our beta test of this new authentication service is now complete, and we are preparing to launch it. While we...
SiteBuilder Training Sessions
CSIT is kicking off a new round of SiteBuilder training sessions starting in May. The day-long class is designed for all ANR staff members in need of proficiency creating and maintaining web sites.
We will provide the basic knowledge to get users up and running with a SiteBuilder site. We will also discuss broader topics including web design best practices, SEO, employing images, social media integration and web accessibility. Time permitting, and dependent on the needs of the class, we can look at issues specific to surveys, Collaborative Tools, blogs,...
CSIT has removed a widely distributed, but rarely used, feature from most SiteBuilder pages.

On Saturday, March 24, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, we will be conducting mandatory maintenance on the servers in our infrastructure. During the maintenance operation, most ANR online services will be offline. We will have technicians working during and immediately after the outage to ensure a rapid restoration of all services.
Following are some of the key services will be unavailable during this outage:
• All Site Builder websites will be unavailable
• All Portal tools, as well as login, Zoom and Zendesk will be unavailable
• Survey and Registration System will be unavailable, as well as credit card processing for event registrations
Our email service provider recently moved email delivery to a newer, more modern system. One of the features of the new system is stronger security and protection from spam. An unfortunate side-effect is that some emails delivered from ANR applications are being marked as spam which moves them to your junk folder. We have reached out to our service provider and have these emails white-listed to fix this problem. This change should be implemented shortly. In the meantime, CSIT recommends ANR employees check their junk email folders for messages from Collaborative Tools, ANR Report and other legitimate mailing list items.
To recover those legitimate messages falsely deemed to be junk, and to train Outlook's filtering going...
