One of Those Days…

Image     Today I did (another)  one of those things that makes me question my abilities as a Tech Specialist.  Typically, it’s small stuff, like mentioning an item in an email and then forgetting to attach the item, or drawing a total blank when asked how to fix a problem that occurs on a daily basis and that I’ve fixed at least a hundred times.

But today’s blunder took the cake.  While making modifications to a list I created for teachers on our portal using Sharepoint 2010 – my favorite program (read I HATE this program!!!),  – I forgot that the Alert feature was enabled.  So, as I worked with a colleague to modify the existing list, I inadvertently sent out emails to all those receiving the alerts for every single item on the list – a whopping 170+ emails!  I probably wouldn’t have even noticed this until tomorrow since I wasn’t really checking emails today, except when I picked up my iPhone, I had 170 new messages!  Imagine my chagrin when, after muttering not so nice words about the culprit of these emails, I realized it was me!  I hastily sent out an apology email to all my coworkers – again, nice work Tech Specialist!  Many of them bounced back because the recipient’s mailboxes were full.

Oops!

Happy Teaching!
