In May 2018, ITS began sending monthly messages to Faculty and Staff announcing an upcoming software update. These updates are typically small, but essential to keeping Carleton computers healthy.
Typically, the announcement is sent the first Tuesday of the month and includes instructions for users to initiate the update proactively. On the second Tuesday of the month, the update becomes automatic.
This schedule is a bit variable depending on holidays, start/end of term, etc.
