Single Sign On Experience Expanding

Back in July the login process for MySJSU (PeopleSoft) was upgraded. As we mentioned before, we are now integrating most of the other campus apps (Gmail, Canvas, WebEx, et al) in the same way.

This Friday, January 20, the new login screen for most apps will look like:

New MySJSU Login Experience

Single Sign-On Experience

“Single Sign-On” means that you can log in a single time to one application and won’t have to type in your SJSUOne ID and password when switching to a new application. Your logged in status will last approximately four hours, after which you’ll have to put in your SJSUOne ID and password again.

This update starts with MySJSU, SpartaJobs, and IPSA and is just the initial step. Over time, additional applications on campus (Google Apps, Canvas, WebEx, et al) will be integrated into the system.

On July 27, the login screen for MySJSU will change to:

New Look For my.sjsu.edu Site

More frequently used apps and links are now larger and placed higher on the page.

Past Student Transcripts

Past students who have attended SJSU can access unofficial transcripts using the Alumni Transcripts link. Current students can access unofficial transcripts via MySJSU.

It’s Important To Log Out

Since your logged-in status will carry across from app to app, the my.sjsu.edu Apps Portal site now features a large, red logout button. At the end of the day or when you’re done using a public computer, be sure to click the logout button or close all your browser windows. This ends the Single Sign-On session and will keep other people from accessing your accounts.

Security Reminder: Lock Your Computer

If you leave your desk for any period of time during the day, please lock your workstation (on Windows it’s called “Lock this computer,” on Macs it’s called “Sleep”) so no one has access to any of your open applications.

SJSUOne Login Page Changing August 12

If you’ve ever logged in to Canvas, checked your campus email, or used any of the many campus web apps then you’re probably already very familiar with the SJSUOne login page. As of August 12, that page will look completely different.

The new design is streamlined and mobile-friendly, making it a lot easier for people using phones and tablets to enter their SJSUOne ID and password to access campus apps and services.

A non-functioning demo is online for anyone who wants to see how it will look after the switch.

Digital Signs Pilot Success

Digital Signs with remote update access have been deployed to 26 locations across campus with positive customer feedback. The SJSU Digital Sign Service is delivering centrally administered and remotely managed informational digital displays across all the campus buildings, with a target implementation of 100 signs by summer of 2015.

An additional 14 locations are scheduled for deployment in the upcoming weeks. Enhanced functionality supporting content from Prezi presentations (Prezi is a web based software solution for creating presentations as an alternative to MS PowerPoint), twitter feeds for user specified hashtags, automated content transitions, remote views of signs for content administrators, and interactive content are being developed and implemented. We invite you to participate!

If you do not see a digital sign in the lobby of your department’s building and are interested in displaying information for your area, please fill out the customer request form. Let us get you started with your Digital Sign!
