UPDATED VERSION 09/28/2021

If you prefer ask IT to help you set this up and explain how it works. Otherwise, the guide walks thru the setup in detail.

Kodiak/AIROS Migration – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
|How do I login for the first time?||If you are a laptop user, you can simply sign into your laptop using your existing credentials (which should be firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are trying to access a VDI, see Accessing AIROS VDI Guide above.
|I don’t have an individual @tarrytownexpocare.com email – can I still log into Kodiak VDI?||In order to log into the Kodiak/AIROS VDI, you will indeed use credentials that look like an email (email@example.com). Most associates do indeed have a TarrytownExpocare.com individual email account. And most use the firstname.lastname@example.org standard. However, there are some exceptions. Additionally, there are some users that have a email@example.com login, but not an individual tarrytownexpocare.com mailbox to send/receive email. That is okay. Just use those credentials or contact IT for assistance.|
|Do I have to use an email to login?||In short yes. In the Kodiak/AIROS environment you will use a login that looks like an email even if you don’t use it for emailing. Typically firstname.lastname@example.org but some legacy users are just firstname.|
|My account/password for DocuTrack is different?||We have integrated DocuTrack with Active Directory so it now uses the same login and password as your email (aka what you use to access your Kodiak/AIROS VDI). If prompted, simply check the “Use current Windows account” box when logging into DocuTrack. That tells the system to pass your Windows credentials rather than requiring you to log in with separate credentials each time you access DocuTrack.|
|RingCentral App is missing on my VDI Desktop||Yes, in the Kodiak/AIROS VDI we are going to ask people to use the web app version. It has all the same functionality and may take a little getting used to, but it is designed to run on any device and the full client really is not designed or supported on a VDI platform. There should be an icon for the web version that is effectively a shortcut to go to the website https://app.ringcentral.com which looks and feels just like the full desktop application. Read the guide Using RingCentral App on VDI for more information.|
|Where are my printers?||Printers have to be added manually to your VDI the first time you use them. There is a Print Management icon on your desktop. If you click that, search for the printer, then click on the printer you desire and follow the instructions it will install the printer. This approach limits the number of printers attached to each VDI which improves performance. More instructions can be found above in the Guide – Adding Printers to your VDI|
|Can I use Chrome instead of Edge?||Edge is a “chrome based browser” and should work for any website that would otherwise work with Chrome. Edge will also sync your favorites, passwords, etc. So, we strongly encourage users to move to Edge exclusively. However, if you have a unique need to install Chrome you can go to the Chrome Download Page and install. You should be able to install Chrome with or without Admin privileges.|
|I can’t search for for emails via Facility IDs in the Medication mailbox or otherwise.||The Shared Facility Address books are now stored in the Public Folders section of Outlook. You have to set them up to make them searchable in your TO: line while composing an email. See Guide – Setup Public Shared Address Book (aka Facility Address Lists)|
|Greenshot – Screen clipping tool not auto launching||We have elected to not auto-launch the Greenshot application as most users have no need for it on a day-to-day basis. If you need to take screen clippings, you can run it and use it until you restart your VDI desktop.|
|Can I access Kodiak/AIROS VDI on a Mac?||Yes, you will need to load the Microsoft Remote Desktop app available in the Apple Store – Microsoft Remote Desktop on the Mac App Store (apple.com)|
