    What are your routine Tasks

    Hi,

    What routine tasks do you carry out as a matter of course?
    I am looking to streamline the way we do things and insert a more procedural way of working here after a long time of Fire fighting and ad hoc reaction to problems.

    I am interested in your routine tasks:

    Daily:

    Weekly

    Monthly:

    Annually:

    Etc.

    It would be a big help to me if you could share what you do


    Thanks in advance

    Yearly: Update and re-image machines
    Automated: Delprof, Defrag, Machine Shutdown, software deployment,

    We used to be firefighting every day. restarting corrupted domain controllers, until we got 2 brand new shiny servers and built a new virtualised environment. We can concentrate on how to develop our IT infrastructure now to further improve and benefit the teaching and learning of the students.

    Hardly any problems with printers as well since we had them all replaced.
