Navigation to Public Folders
  • The calendar can be found in a folder named “Change Management”. Navigation to the public folders and to the Change Management folder is performed as follows:
  • If you have not used public folders, in the past, you may not have them displayed in Outlook. To display public folders, at the bottom of the Navigation pane on the left hand side, you will see something similar to this:
  • Click the folder icon. You should see Folder List at the bottom of the Navigation pane.
  • Expand the Public Folders list by clicking on the + sign.
  • All change requests are scheduled using Change Management calendars in MS Exchange Public Folders.

Continue to expand the list by clicking on the + sign next to All Public Folders, Office of State Finance, and then Change Management. Then click on the calendar you need to view or update. Do not add entries to the main Change Management folder.

Creating an Entry
  • Even though this is a calendar entry, do not click on “Invite Attendees.” Meeting invites only work in personal folders, not public. This will also change fields behind the scenes and make it impossible for you to save your information.
  •  Fill out the fields as appropriate. There are several mandatory fields. An explanation of each field follows in sequence as they appear on the screen:

change management policy
Change Management Policy
  • The Change Management process should be followed for all architecture change requests related to the support of existing services or the addition of new services.
  • Requests should be logged as soon as enough information is available to provide a meaningful description of change and the purpose behind the change, even if the specific date for the change has not yet been determined.
  • Architectural changes are not to be implemented without first being approved by the Change Request Review Board. In emergency situations, the Change Request Review Board should be notified as soon as is feasible.
  • For non-emergency, but urgent situations in which a change should be implemented before the next scheduled Review Board meeting, notification of the change request will be made to the Change Request Review Board coordinator who will obtain the proper approvals through the use of email, telephone, and individual conversations.
