One of the best things an admin can do
is to have good public relations with
the user community.
Don't just be there when problems arise.
Go out to the user community when things are
working. High visibility is the key.
If the users see you around and there are no
problems they will believe that you care to
take the time for them.
Try not to let the users always go come to you.
Go to those users that you never here from
The perfect users, the ones that leave you
alone. Often the don't have an understanding
of what you can do for them.
I know many will say, "I don't have time!"
Just a calm walk through a department is
really all it takes, sometimes you never
have to stop.
