On this Wednesday from 5:10 pm to 5:20 pm, RefTool will receive a major update! This update will facilitate the Service Desk’s vetting process to providing password reset PINs to ONID users. There are 2 new features.
Masking Alternate Contact Information
Currently, by default RefTool displays the user’s alternate email and phone number in full:
After the update, RefTool will mask the client’s alternate contact info by default.
Users of RefTool can reveal the alternate contact info by clicking on the “Show alt. contact” button. Doing this also displays a warning to the user not to share the full info.
Displaying a Person’s OSU ID Picture
For ONID-based accounts ONLY, RefTool will load the OSU ID card’s picture OSU has on record for a person.
Note that OSU do not have pictures for the accounts below:
- General mailboxes
- Non-ONID accounts (AD-based accounts in various domains, e.g. science, engineering, TSS)
Unless these accounts have their own profile pictures linked from somewhere, an image will not be available.
That’s all folks. As always, if you have questions, comments, or concerns, let me know!
For demonstration, all identifiable info contained in the screenshots regarding the masking of alternate contact info have been edited via Google Chrome’s Inspector. ONID user “bennybeav” and all their contact info are made up.
