10/19/10 Update to Gradudate Coordinators and Committees
The following message was sent to campus Graduate Application Coordinators on 10/19/10:
A quick note to all of you to let you know about the progress we are making with the ImageNow implementation.
As indicate earlier we have made a copy of the Test System configuration and have loaded it into an instance of ImageNow in the Production Environment. Earlier today we have been given access to that instance and Barbara and I are in the process of testing. As such, please continue to ignore any emails you get until we give the OK to begin using the system in Live production.
If all of the testing goes as well as we expect it to, we should be ready to provide you access to the system by Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning. What does this mean?
As the Pilot GPDs (Program Coordinators) and Committee members, you will be the first to use the system for Spring 2011 Applications. Given that you have already begun to process Spring 2011 Applications under the existing process, Grad Admissions, upon signing off on the testing, will push those “already processed” applications through the system ‘beginning to end” so that you do not have to revisit these applications and will then turn the system over to you to begin processing Applications. As I said, we are hoping to do this Monday or Tuesday of next week.
At that point, you will be asked to check your ready for Review folders each morning (or how ever often you have decided to do so) and annotate and sign (GPD) the Profile Sheets and then forward them back to Grad Admissions. These will then be processed and letters sent to the applicants accordingly. THESE WILL BE OFFICAL DECISSIONS.
Barb and I will reach out again at the beginning of next week to let you know how testing has gone and when you should begin processing application via ImageNow.
As ever, please do not hesitate to call should you have any questions. We are at ext. 4227.
Again, I and Grad Admissions would like to thank you all for your time and helping us to make this Document Imaging implementation a successful one.
