FVTC Basics: File Storage, Email & MyFVTC
FVTC employees should store their class documents on a FVTC network drive or on SharePoint on the Intranet. The advantage to using SharePoint is that the files will be readily available from anywhere faculty have access to the web. Network files are only available when on an FVTC campus or regional center. The required FVTC network ID is provided as part of the hiring process.
Microsoft Outlook is a powerful communications and scheduling program that helps faculty and staff communicate with others inside and outside the organization, keep track of tasks, and organize busy schedules. An FVTC Outlook email account is provided as part of the hiring process.

The Daily News is the place to go for up-to-the-minute information and College and staff news as well as the place to access the staff bulletin board where community announcements are made and items can be bought and sold. The Daily News is located on the FVTC Intranet (Staff Resources/Intranet Links on the College website) and requires that you sign in with your network ID and password.
Using MyFVTC, students and staff have access to FVTC computing resources from any computer with Internet access.
