What’s in the Box?
Have you looked inside Box, Duke’s online file storage and collaboration tool? Take a look, and you might just find an Amazon Echo, the room-sized Echo Dot, or a View-Master Virtual Reality viewer. As part of “Duke Box Awareness Month,” OIT is hosting a contest to show off Box’s features such as file storage, sharing, and editing.
Enter and Approve Time Off on the Go
University employees can now enter and managers can approve exempt time off by accessing the Duke@Work section of the DukeMobile app. Employees can enter their vacation, sick and discretionary time off each month on their mobile devices. Supervisors can view and approve time off submissions from the employees who report to them.
