With the 800 MHz P25 changes to both the nomenclature and fleetmap, maybe you want to see it all in action before you pick up the radio to practice. Here are some quick YouTube videos showing the portable radio:
If a county holiday falls on your regular day off, you need to take another day off (using holiday lave, not your annual/sick/comp leave) within the same pay period.
Scenario: Christmas Day (12/25) falls on a Friday and the employee works every other Friday in his normal schedule. 12/25 happens to coincide with that regular day off. The total number of hours in the preloaded MCtime timecard shows zero (0.0) hours on 12/25.
Add a row.
Change the Pay Code from Hours Worked to Hol – Holiday Leave.
Put in the number of hours for a full work day in the date of your choice (again, it must be in the same pay period). This applies whether you work 8, 9 or 10 hours on your regular schedule.
Delete the preloaded number of hours worked for the date you have chosen.
Have you filled out a PDF, only to find that it wasn’t there when you tried to save the form? Did you save a form of data and believe it to be fine, but then e-mail it and the recipient(s) said that no data was there?
Next time, don’t choose Save when you are finished. Instead, choose to print and then name the PDF writer as the printer.
The user will be prompted for a filename and location. The data will be saved with the form and then viewable by the people who need to see the form after you send it.
Browser: Google Chrome is preferred and the company won’t guarantee everything will work smoothly with other browsers (e.g., Edge, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari).
How to Attach a File: You have two choices for any form which requests attachments.
Attach the file(s) while filling out the form by clicking the attachment(s) icon, which resembles a paperclip and is located on the far-left side of the screen.
Wait until you sign and you’ll be prompted when you click the Submit button. To attach a file, you would like the Click Here to Upload link. You are limited to 250 MB per attachment.
Required Fields: Any required field is marked with a red asterisk, typical of required fields on virtually any web form on the Internet. If the form is asking for information and you would not normally need to provide it when filling out the given form, simply mark the field N/A. (Note: N/A is not an appropriate substitute when you should know the information and simply have not found the information before beginning your form.)
E-Mail Notifications: Due to the SeamlessDocs software programming, you may get more than one status notification, depending upon the form you have signed. Likewise, they may end up going to your Spam/Junk folder, so keep an eye on that.
Are you filling out your performance evaluations (also called Workplace Performance Management) and stuck, not recalling how to do something? While help is available (contact Jeff Feiertag for 1:1 assistance), the county has also published some quick reference documents.
Do you need to drop the file size on your PDF? Do you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat? If so, this post is for you.
Open your PDF in Acrobat.
Click the Tools menu and select Optimize.
Note the new toolbar that appears, which includes the following two buttons:
Click the Reduce File Size button.
Identify a saving location and go through the save process as it appears on-screen.
Note: The Advanced Optimization button (as seen above) features six screens of options. Try to use the basic Reduce File Size button, to see if it meets your file size needs, before diving into these options.
Are you using Teams for video meetings? Here is how to change your background to one of the available built-in images.
Click the Join button to enter your meeting pre-stage screen.
Find and click the Background Settings button, located beneath the Join Now button in the video preview screen.
Note the Background Options pane that opens on the right side of the screen.
Click the background of your choice. The first in the list (circle with a slash) will cancel the background image and show your actual environment. The second item will show only a blurred background. All other options are images you may choose. After selecting an image, click the Join Now button to enter your meeting.
