Web Appointment Scheduling System

The Web Appointment Scheduling System (WASS; formerly known as the Office Hours System) allows faculty, deans and others to post their office hours on the Web. Students can access these office hours to make appointments. WASS uses e-mail to notify people of pending appointments, and also allows appointments to be synchronized with local calendaring applications, such as Outlook and Google calendar.

Anyone at Princeton can use WASS. Office hour holders create a calendar in the system and indicate their availability for appointments on that calendar. Each calendar has an associated URL (web page address) which can be advertised to students or other potential appointment makers. Once created, students or others can access the calendar, locate the blocks of available time, and make an appointment. The calendar owner can restrict appointments on the basis of NetID (login identifier) or course enrollment, and can also open up blocks of time to anyone in the Princeton community and beyond.

WASS can also be used to schedule appointments for entities (rooms, access to equipment), and can be used to schedule meetings for which people self-enroll. You would use WASS in cases where you want to make yourself or some resource available during limited periods of time, and you want people to be able to make appointments without having to contact you.

The WASS system is completely browser-based; no software needs to be installed on your computer.  It works with most browsers on most platforms (Macs, PCs, Unix workstations). Both calendar owners and appointment makers access WASS using the following web address:

http://www.princeton.edu/wass

The system has built-in, context-sensitive help. If you have any questions about WASS, please contact the Help Desk.

WebSpace

WebSpace is a web-accessible file storage service.  With 5GB of storage allocated to each user account, WebSpace allows simple and secure access (uploads, downloads, etc.) to your files from any computer on the Internet using a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari. You can also use WebDAV technology to access your WebSpace folders, allowing you to drag and drop files to your WebSpace  folders.

WebSpace includes features that enable collaboration with colleagues within and outside of the Princeton community.

To create your account, go to WebSpace www.princeton.edu/webspace and log in using your Princeton NetID and password. You can begin working immediately with your private folder, which you can use to store and share your files. Once you have created your account, you can continue to work with WebSpace via your web browser or your preferred WebDAV client, see the knowledgebase entry on how to connect to WebSpace.

Collaboration

WebSpace is one of several collaboration tools offered by OIT. It allows users to collaborate with one another by providing a mechanism for transferring and sharing files that is safer and easier than using e-mail attachments or exchanging physical media. Because it is so easy to share files, even with people who do not have a Princeton NetID, WebSpace is ideal for collaboration. 

  • Students can securely share their draft documents with classmates and faculty. 
  • Faculty can securely share research materials with colleagues either within or external to Princeton. 
  • File-level access control, versioning, tagging, descriptive metadata, and full-text search capabilities are among the additional features that help you find and manage your files and collaborate with your colleagues.
  • Automated notifications can alert you when files are updated by your colleagues.
  • RSS support can accelerate your publication and review processes.

Blackboard Integration

There are two tools to facilitate sharing WebSpace files within Blackboard. One creates a link within your Blackboard site content areas to a file or folder in WebSpace; the other creates a shared drop box in which students can deposit files and view files submitted by their classmates.  For more information, see the BlackBoard FAQ.
