Our current online scheduler for the Microscopy Suite, Quartzy, is dropping the scheduling service as of March 4. As a result, we will be adding our facility to a university licensed web-based software called Facility Online Manager (FOM), hosted by PINSE. All users will be able to schedule instrument time through this software not only for our facility, but also see availability of similar instrumentation in both the Materials Characterization Lab and in the Nanoscale Fabrication and Characterization Facility.
Users should expect the same types functionality they have come to expect in Quartzy, albeit in a different format. PIs will have the added benefit of monitoring the usage of their groups across the facilities, while our managers will be able to keep maintenance logs and upload manuals for the instruments directly onto the platform for user information. Users, please remember to login and log out of the instrument during your reserved tines from any web platform (including you phone or tablet) in order to log your actual use.
We hope to make this transition as seamless as possible, and we thank you for your patience during this change.
