My Workspace

Version 10.6.2  03/23/2016

Description

My Workspace site is your personal and private site on TRACS and is the first place you will come to when you log in.

It contains specific information concerning your account settings, profile, preferences, and will also give you a general overview of your site's activity.

In My Workspace, you will see an overview of all of your sites' recent announcements, calendar events, and message center notifications such as new forum postings and messages from all your TRACS sites.

TRACS Administrators will post important information in the main view of My Workspace.

What else will I see in the Home tool?

  • Worksite Setup
    • The Worksite Setup Tool is used to create project/course websites. It also provides a list of all sites you are a participant in. This tool is only found in Home.

      You can choose to view only course, or only project sites, by clicking the All My Sites drop-down list and making a selection.

      From this screen, click [New] at the top to begin creating a site.
  • Profile
    • Profile, found in Home, includes information you enter about yourself, such as your name, position, department, phone number, and location. Your profile will be visible only if you change your profile privacy settings.
  • Resources
    • The Resources tool is used to post many different types of files, such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, plain text documents, and links to web sites. You have 10 GB of space allotted so that you may place personal files in Resources of My Workspace. Think of it as a 10 GB network drive that is backed up and available to you wherever you have an internet connection.
  • Announcements
  • Calendar
  • Membership
    • The Membership Tool in My Workspace allows you to join and un-join sites. It also provides a list of sites of which you are a member, and a list of other sites that have allowed global access, and are therefore joinable by any user.
