Getting Started

If you're unfamiliar with CAMP, see this overview of the purpose of CAMP and to see the front page menu explained. 

What is changed and what isn't

When a CAMP account is created, the following information is used to create an account

  • Account type (used for the Computer Account)
  • Primary Group (Used to decide which default O: drive location is provided)
  • Camp Supervisor (who will get the CAMP updates and warning of account expiration - Not to be confused with the actual supervisor, although it could be the same person.  The actual Supervisor field in Outlook is populated by the Payroll department)
  • Preferred Name (used for Computer Account and Email address in Outlook)
  • Last Name (used for Computer Account and Email address in Outlook)
  • Job Title (displayed in Outlook)
  • Office Location (displayed in Outlook)
  • Work Phone (displayed in Outlook)
  • Mobile Phone (displayed in Outlook)
  • Personal Email address (used to create ZZ-email address in Outlook.  This email address is required if they want to reset their own password one day)
  • Group Memberships (displayed in Outlook, and used for which section the name will be displayed in the Phone List)
  • Account Expiry/Termination Date (this is used to decide when the account is terminated)

When a CAMP account is created, the following information is used to provide additional resources ONLY if "Notify arrivals and departures" is selected

  • Phone and Computer information (Used to determine whether a new computer needs to be supplied, or whether they will be using an existing computer or none at all)
  • Corporate Applications (what software, accounts or applications is required by this person)
  • Comments (additional info for Computer Services)

When a CAMP account is updated, the following information is the ONLY information that is updated automatically

  • Camp Supervisor (who will get the CAMP updates and warning of account expiration - Not to be confused with the actual supervisor, although it could be the same person.  The actual Supervisor field in Outlook is populated by the Payroll department)
  • Office Location (displayed in Outlook)
  • Job Title (displayed in Outlook)
  • Work Phone (displayed in Outlook)
  • Mobile Phone (displayed in Outlook)
  • Account Expiry/Termination Date (this is used to decide when the account is terminated)

ANY OTHER changes must be sent to Computer Services via email by "Notify Arrivals and Departures" or by forwarding the confirmation email the account supervisor or employee receives.  Otherwise Computer Services will not be aware, and not make the changes.  It should also be noted that new items in the "Corporate Application and Training" section are not identified as such, so a special comment to Computer Services is appreciated.

Information for non-Administrators

Please note that you cannot change your first name, last name, preferred name, RRU ID or Supplier ID.  You must use the legal name change procedure if there is a need to affect any of these items.  

Information For Administrators

Some of the processes used to manage staff and core faculty are slightly different than those used to manage associate faculty, temps and contractors.  For this reason, they are listed separately below. 

Before you add a new record in CAMP for anyone, please read over these important points.
