About WPVu3a Toolbox

The WPVu3a Toolbox provides access to the IT tools you need for your u3a activity as a committee member, officer or group convenor. It is designed to work with the Google Chrome web browser.

On a desktop device (Windows, Mac, Linux or Chromebook)

The WPVu3a Toolbox will add your u3a Workspace account to your Chrome Profile, unless it has already been added. It is recommended that you set up a separate Chrome Profile for your u3a business. This will help keep u3a data separate from your personal Google data. Find out about Chrome Profiles here.

On a phone or tablet

The WPVu3a Toolbox is designed to run within a Work Profile. You will be prompted to setup a Work Profile when you attempt to add your u3a Workspace account details to your device.

On an Android device

A Work Profile will ensure you have the apps used by the u3a and will help keep u3a data separate from any personal data. Work Profile apps can be easily identified as they are marked with a small briefcase. Work Profile apps will run using your u3a account 

You can find more about Work Profiles on Android devices here.

On an iOS device (iPad or iPhone)

A Work Profile will ensure you have the apps used by the u3a but it does not separate personal and u3a data.

The Tools

Each tool is accessed via a button. Some of the tools in the Toolbox (email, calendar and files) are components of u3a Workspace, which is provided by Google.
