QShare, Queen’s online file storage and sharing solution, will be upgraded this June. This upgrade will keep us up-to-date with the current version of the software that’s being supported by the vendor. It will offer the same functionality as the version in use now, and position us to offer enhanced functionality in the future.
This upgrade will primarily affect those who use the QShare web interface (i.e. those who access QShare using their web browser). The updated web interface will have a new “look and feel”, meaning that the layout and menu structure will be different although you will still be able to do the same things. If you use the Xythos Drive Client, you will need to upgrade to the newest version of that software, but it will not function any differently. The updated client will be available to licensed users prior to the upgrade.
Updated QShare documentation, including online tutorials and “What’s New?” information, is already in the works. As well, ITServices will be hosting a demo session to introduce the new web interface prior to the upgrade.
If you have any questions, please contact the IT Support Centre by calling 613.533.6666 or by filling out the online help form.
