You may have noticed some changes around the office recently. Nothing is working, password boxes are popping up. Dr Sam yelling about why the xrays are not giphy (5)working.

Now that the server is in the cloud password security is EXTREMELY important.

So the default windows password we have been using for the "dentist" account has to be changed. So change it!

The New default 'denist' password should be S@msF**************. (Ask deepa what this password is).

Once you are logged into the default 'den** account with the new secure password the mapped drives will open without asking for a password every time you restart.

If the Dentist account does not work use the Staff account

 

Current accounts you can log in with are "Staff" "Dentist" and "Xray". All using the new secure password.

Computers are one of the tools you use in our work environment constantly. So basic issues like mapping drives and changing passwords you are expected to know.

All of these tasks fall into basic computer knowledge.
