Temporary IB Helpdesk closes on 1 July

Since 8 June, work has been undertaken on the new HR system ‘SuccesFactors’.

In order to answer questions or take a look at the system, a special FASoS IB-Helpdesk has been installed in the room above Bandito, in addition to the UM-wide Helpdesk. This Helpdesk is temporary and will stop working on 1 July.

If you still have questions in the coming period, you can still contact the central Helpdesk via ASK-HR@maastrichtuniversity.nl.

Blocking of .zip, .htm and .html attachments in external emails

Starting 21 June, ICTS blocks .zip, .htm and .html attachments in emails coming from outside the UM Exchange environment, since they are common attack vectors for phishing and malware.

This may impact the exchange of these types of files with external contacts.

If you need to send and/or receive .zip, .htm and .html files to/from external contacts, there is an alternative, in the form of the SURFfilsender (not to be confused with the SURFdrive).

Start early adopters MS Teams phone system

On 2 June, a group of around 40 FASoS colleagues started as early adopters/first users of the new phone system at UM: Microsoft Teams (MS Teams).

The current telephone system on our desks (Mitel) is outdated and will be replaced in the coming months. Given the large usage of Microsoft Teams across the university and hybrid working, Maastricht University has adopted MS Teams as the new phone system.

Freeze of HR systems due to Integrale Bedrijfsvoering project

As you probably know, we will soon be working with new HR-, finance- and procurement systems. The switch to these new systems has been part of the project called ‘Integrale Bedrijfsvoering’ (IB).

As communicated in the FASoS Weekly of 26 April, HR systems ‘froze’ in May 2022. This freeze will last until 8 June 2022. This means that you are currently unable to book leave in IMAR, to make declarations in ESS, or to submit purchase orders. If you want to take leave in the freeze period, please write down which day(s) and discuss this with your manager.
