Frequently Asked Questions

How do I request a flexible, hybrid or remote work arrangement?

Recently, I accepted a remote position at Purdue. Who pays for shipping my equipment to me and for returning it?

  • Your department pays to ship the equipment to you and for the return

What are the recommended equipment guidelines?

How do I access the virtual meeting tools, such as Teams or Webex?

What are the telecommunication best practices?

  • Preferred Internal communications - Microsoft Teams and WebEx
    • Microsoft Teams provides calling and collaboration (Teams sites, OneDrive, Office Online, etc.) across the Purdue system
    • WebEx provides large-scale conference capabilities, integrated meeting room support, and capabilities for making and receiving phone calls via a campus-provided phone number.

Can I use WebEx for phone calls?

  • Purdue has adopted WebEx as the tool to use for placing phone calls without physically being in an office on campus, but yet using your office phone number. Calls will appear as if you are calling and receiving from your office phone number.  
  • Follow the steps outlined in the WebEx Getting Started - PC and Mac. If you have previously utilized the soft-phone client Cisco Jabber, it cannot run simultaneously with WebEx. Please sign out and close Jabber and then install or launch WebEx.
