Setting your home page folder as a network drive (Mac)

Your home page folder is located on a separate network drive. Editing the home pages requires that the folder has been set up as a network drive on your computer.

If you want to do this on your home computer, you must first form a remote connection to the university network with the Pulse Secure software.
