Limesurvey accounts

Creating and administering an online survey via IMSA's limesurvey system requires the user to have an admin account in the limesurvey system. Here are our ITS guidelines for such accounts.

No IMSA account has limesurvey admin rights by default. To get such rights the user must submit a Helpdesk request asking for those rights.

Any Helpdesk request asking for limesurvey admin rights should explain what sort of surveys will be created. The request must specify exactly which person or persons are to obtain the rights, either by their full name or IMSA account name.

Community Email Virus Notice, February 2003

As many of you are painfully aware, virus infected email is becoming much more prevalent. As a result, CNS has implemented a technical solution to catch and prevent these infections. The software for this process is installed on the IMSA mail servers. This process is being made as part of our ongoing effort to secure the IMSA computing system and ensure the safety, availability, integrity and confidentiality of our system and our data.
