All User Bulletin - Issues with Links to AHS MS Office and SharePoint Files

All-user-bulletins highlight stumbling blocks that all prescribers need to be aware of when using the Connect Care clinical information system.

Links to MS Office and SharePoint Assets
Many users have noticed broken links to resources like training demonstrations, workflow guides and other Connect Care information and support resources. Others are having difficulty with the logon step presented when accessing Alberta Health Services (AHS) Office or SharePoint applications, especially on mobile and Apple devices.

A recent update to the authentication step in Microsoft file links may relate to these difficulties.

Links and logons are usually re-established with the following corrective:
  • Close all Internet browsers (Safari, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, etc.) on the local device.
  • Open a preferred browser (Chrome recommended).
  • Clear the Internet cache (history), paying particular attention to include "Cookies" and Internet history for "all time" (i.e., not just the last day or so).
  • Close the browser.
  • Reopen (possibly reboot the computer first) the browser and re-navigate to the resource of interest.
