Update the emails and instructions for the classification process. The information currently available is very confusing. (Submitted 56 days ago) I like it!

With the Summer 2018 enhancements to GSuite email security as noted in the OIT blog, many problems with the security of internal emails have been solved. Faculty and Staff should be able to use Gmail (Volmail) instead of being confined to Office 365. (Submitted 36 days 19 hours ago) I like it!

When students log into Canvas, they should see a summary list of the Announcements that have been posted for each course. Currently, students must enter each course and then go to the Announcement area before they can see any announcements. The extra steps discourage students from hunting for announcements, so they miss out on crucial Instructor-initiated messages. Since Canvas sends out notifications about absolutely any change in the course, many students are so deluged with Canvas notifications, they opt out of all notifications. Students should not be able to turn off instructor-initiated announcements. (Submitted 12 days 20 hours ago) I like it!

For Fall semester, Biology has 14 courses (22 lecture sections), and 150 individual lab/discussion sections. Currently, if we want to assign an instructor to their lecture class (typically 6-10 sections), we must open multiple windows in Banner and add the instructor to one section at a time. That should be a simple process of clicking the correct sections on a single course page and SUBMIT! We have to make changes to capacities, wait lists, etc., one section at a time. We also must create informational announcements about when the labs or discussion sections first meet, one section at a time (those announcements are also difficult for students to view, which is a distinct issue). There should be a straight-forward way to enter information into Banner for all sections in a given lecture class, or for all sections in a course, in a single procedure, rather than having to make changes in scores of sections, one section at a time. We constantly make changes throughout student registration, so this is not just an issue for initial Timetable construction. (Submitted 12 days 20 hours ago) I like it!
