Pardon me if this has already been asked…
I’m curious if other colleges and universities grant admin access to desktop or laptops owned and managed by the college and used by faculty or staff. We currently install whatever they need for them and maintain an inventory of all software installed. We track licensing etc. We are hesitant to give people admin access to their machines, but more and more they want to be able to do installations to demo products, get updates that we may not have installed yet, etc.
Just wondering if we’re being overly restrictive.
Thanks for your feedback, Dennis
