STARTING SEPTEMBER 26
Services moving to TeamDynamix (TDX) Enterprise Service Management tool to
support Rollins community
This fall, Rollins is moving toward more seamless support across campus.
On September 26, Facilities Services will begin using TeamDynamix (TDX) to support campus. This is the same tool already in use by IT, and also for support processes for a handful of other departments on campus.
This is a first and critical step to making it easier for you to get the help you need, when you need it. We look forward to collaborating with each other more seamlessly to support Rollins. If you have any questions, please let us know.
As you’ve seen via email, IT Governance endorsed the decision to transition to Microsoft Teams because it will provide a single, consistent videoconferencing experience with improved accessibility features. It is also better financially (Teams is included with Microsoft 365) and we can provide better support for one solution.
In this article:
The transition is designed to be gradual, with plenty of support along the way. We know you and everybody with whom you interact need time to learn the new system. Each month we’ll have a general skills focus, gradually building up skills with teams as we go. We’ll also have a transition goal to track the shift of meetings from Webex to Teams before the cutoff in December.
Note: those needing to transition away from Zoom will receive additional communication as there is a longer transition timeline. However, we encourage you to learn Teams this semester to get a head start!
Here is the Webex to Teams timeline:

We have other support content in development, and live workshops will be announced starting in September. We'll send out updates as these become available - stay tuned!
Several questions have come up about the ability to use Teams with people outside of Rollins. Yes! Teams can be used with people outside of Rollins, and we’ll show you how in the upcoming weeks. As just one example, meetings can be set up to allow people to join from a browser without an account.
Fortunately, we are not alone; many other colleges and universities use Teams as their primary videoconferencing platform. We know the experience will be different, but we’ll help you get familiar with it and will share information with you so you can help guests connect with you using Teams.

Effective immediately, all rFLA schedule edits and additions can be sent directly to the Registrar's Office. This new policy is a departure from the past procedure where all rFLA edits needed to be submitted directly to the Associate Dean of Academics for review. The Dean's Office will work with the Registrar's Office to review rFLA submissions to ensure we have the necessary balance of divisions and course levels. If an rFLA course is being taught for the first time, please submit an rFLA course proposal form (link) here before sending the course to the Registrar's Office.
All proposed RCC and Honors courses should still be submitted to the Dean's Office and not included with your other schedule materials.
