If you want to import your Google Calendar into Outlook, you don’t have to re-enter all of your appointments. Instead, export your Google Calendar to a file, and then import them into Outlook on your desktop. It’s not a one-click button but there’s a wizard that’ll walk you through the steps.

 

If you already have a gmail.com Google account and want to have the calendar associated with that account included in your GoogleApps@UIC calendar, log in to your other Google account and  "share" your other Google calendar with your GoogleApps@UIC calendar.

ANSYS must ALWAYS be run using torque. You can run ANSYS in an interactive mode via a GUI that is called the launcher, or in a non-interactive (batch) mode. In both cases you start ANSYS using the qsub command.

Running ANSYS interactively (using the launcher)

You desktop PC will act as the X-server for the ANSYS launcher. Exceed is the ACCC-supported X-server package. However, you are not required to use Exceed; there are other Window-based X-server packages that will work just as nicely.

To request a new MySQL database email accounts@uic.edu indicating what kind of usage you intend and what disk space requirements you foresee needing.

  3. Click Print.
  4. Access the nearest U-Print Station and log in using your UIC NetID  and password.

Department Phonebook contacts can make changes to staff Phonebook records in their department, as well as manage the unit's department listing as displayed in Departments A-Z search. Phonebook Contacts are assigned by a delegate authority in the department - usually a dean, director, department head or other designated employee. Delegate authorities can assign Phonebook contacts and other liaisons online.

If you already have a MySQL database, use the MySQL database and user management web application to:

  • add MySQL database users
  • remove MySQL database users
  • change access level (read-only or read-write)
  • change MySQL user passwords

Please note that MySQL usernames must correspond to existing UIC NetIDs. By default, each MySQL database also comes with two accounts:

The ACCC runs an LDAP server that you can use to look up the names and email addresses of people using NetID@uic.edu email addresses. This page explains how to use this LDAP server with Mozilla Thunderbird and with Eudora OSE, which is based on Thunderbird.

Activate your site, if you haven't already done so. No additional software is needed to map your people.uic.edu account as a network share, but if you are connecting from an off-campus location you will need to connect to the UIC Virtual Private Network (VPN) first. 

Windows

To map your account start by right-clicking on your Desktop. Select New then Shortcut. In the dialog, type in \\people.uic.edu\NetID (use your own UIC NetID) in the location field. Click Next.
