Early Adopters agree to receive software patches and updates soon after they are released by vendors, reporting any issue they find to LITS. This helps LITS to understand the effect that necessary security patches and updates may have on computers in our environment. By engaging with a diverse group of early adopters across campus, we are better able to address any changes or problems that would be otherwise unforeseen.

Your Responsibilities as an Early Adopter
- Use your computer: Seriously, that's all you really need to do. Use your computer as you normally would. You don't have to go around clicking every button, trying every menu item. Just do what you normally do--that's what we're interested in having you test.
- Flag any issues: Let us know if you run into any problems with a particular patch. We have a form to guide you in filling out a patch report. Your report will come straight to us in endpoint management.
