Why are some of the menu options in SharePoint 2010 grayed out? (link)

Menu options that are grayed out are not available, and there are many possible reasons why. Items in the list might not be selected, the browser you are using might mean that option is not available (Internet Explorer from a PC is the browser that will provide you the most functionality), you might not have permissions in the site, or the site administrator may have disallowed various options.

How do I retrieve data from a Poll Everywhere polling session after I've cleared it? (link)

Please view the document on how to retrieve data from a Poll Everywhere polling session after you’ve cleared it. If you have two sections of the same course, you would run the poll for the first section. You would clear the data after you run the poll for the first section, and then run the poll for the second section. If you want to get back to the data from the first section, this is how you would do it.

Why is a pay period record missing on my Time History screen in Webadvisor, even though I was paid for those days? (link)

If you do not electronically sign and submit your time card to your supervisor, there is no web transaction to display for that pay period in the Time History screen on Webadvisor. What happens is your default work schedule, or days you entered manually, are pulled into payroll and the verifications are done through the normal payroll files. There is no detail from the web that was saved to reference. Also, at this point, any verification of hours or approvals needed are done by the Payroll Department in conjunction with your supervisor before you are paid.

When off campus, why can't I log into a W&L application web site (like SharePoint) using Internet Explorer? (link)

If one takes a W&L laptop that is in the W&L AD domain off campus and then attaches to a site that is in the IE 'Local Intranet' security zone, the laptop attempts to do pass-through integrated windows login.  However, this requires that the computer has direct access to an AD domain controller, which is blocked in the firewall.  Unfortunately, IE does not gracefully fall back to a username and password prompt in this case.

 

To configure IE to always prompt for a username and password:

1.       Open Internet Explorer

2.       Select “Tools”

3.       Select “Internet Options”

4.       Select “Security”

5.       Select “Local  intranet”

6.       Select “Custom level…”

7.       Scroll all the way to the last option and select “Prompt for user name and password”

8.       Select “OK” to exit both dialog windows

 

To re-configure IE once you are back on campus, follow the same procedure, but in step 7, select “Automatic logon only in Intranet zone”
