 When an item of equipment is found to have a

  1. test the equipment to see if there is a problem or if
    possibly user error.
  2. if problem does exist check item bookings for bookings in
    near future.
  3. if bookings exist during next 2 week period try to move
    these bookings to another item if possible.  Ideally move all bookings
    to another item(s) so equipment can be charged to REPAIRS in Workflows
    booking system.  After all bookings moved to other item, charge item by
    item ID # and make due date NEVER using the WIZARD.  This makes getting
    item repaired easier as often repair time is unknown.  If unable to
    move bookings to another item, charge item to REPAIRS in Workflows to cover
    the period until the next booking.
  4. If not able to replace item, contact IT Services
    explaining situation and ask how soon item can be repaired.  An IT work
    ticket will need to be made to facilitate the repair.   *If Margo is away and item needed before she is back send email to
    or call IT Helpdesk requesting the ticket.

Video Clip Playback in Full Screen Mode

Browser plug-ins that play small video clips do not allow full screen video viewing; however, if you save the file (by right clicking on it, save as) then open it by double clicking on it (it should launch the player application, instead of just the plug-in) you then should be able to set the program to go into full screen through one of the drop down menus in the player.
