What can I access from ChargerNet?

Everyone with a login to ChargerNet will be presented with a single Welcome tab. Whether you are an employee or student, all of the links that display will be relevant to your role.

Campus announcements which are for both students and employees will display in the upper left of the window. Up-to-date campus directories by building, department, or person can be downloaded in the middle column. These directories are only available to Faculty and Staff. Personal announcements are based on membership to specific groups or roles and display in the right hand column.

Group information is also available in the Group Studio Activity Channel.

How do I become a member of a group?

Initially, groups will be managed by the ChargerNet Administrator. Contact the administrator by emailing chargernet@uah.edu. The group(s) that you have been added to will display under My Groups when you click the View All Groups option.

How do I get my groups to display on the Welcome tab?

If groups do not display by default, it is possible to manage the display of groups by clicking the edit icon on the Group Studio Activity Channel box. Under the left column, select the group(s) to display or Select All Groups to automatically display any new groups you may be added to. In the right column, select the applications (News, Photos, Links, Files, or Messages) that will display notifications when something new is added to the application type, or Select All Applications for all types of notifications. Once you have made your selections, click Save Changes. Click Done to go back to the Welcome page. 

How do I display new group content?

In the Group Studio Activity Channel, new content will be identified by a message posted next to the group name. The type of application and number of elements is posted for each application that notifications were selected to display in the edit screen. Any time that you see that new content has been posted, click the link for that particular group and select the application type from the left column. The new content will display on the right.

What is the timeout on a ChargerNet session?
