  16. Email Migration • How does this impact you? • Little immediate impact to the graduate community • Minor interruptions during the move • All addresses will stay the same • No need to change anything just yet • Slowly deprecate “@sgs.utoronto.ca” so eventually people will need to update • Marketing materials/website • Address books / contacts • Big Benefits • Calendars for SGS (free busy/time) will be available for those on UTORExchange

  19. SGS Drive • Exploring offering a web based alternative for accessing the existing file share • Nothing is changing • Access via WebDAV will continue • Access via CyberDuck will continue • Access via Windows Explorer (drive mappings) will continue

  20. Progress Tracker • An optional, web based tool to assist graduate students, supervisors, and units with tracking progress of research stream students. • Held a number of consultations, request for feedback and focus groups • Development occurred over the summer and is continuing

  21. Progress Tracker • Project has been delayed due to competing priorities • we are working to get it back on track • Winter 2015 • Setup a demo environment for those interested • If you would be interested in testing please contact me • About 10 units have expressed interest so far • Summer 2015 • Work with EASI on integration with ROSI • Develop training and user guides • Fall 2015 • Production for those who wish to use it

  22. Electronic Forms • 74 forms on our website • Used by students, faculty, and staff • Most are PDF’s but the process is very much paper based • OAA, OGS, Travel Grant, Conference Grant require IS involvement to change • No way to know the status • No way to access the data collected

  23. Electronic Forms • SGS is developing a new web forms tool • Reduce turn around time on form development/deployment • Maintain version/history without losing data • No database changes • No system down time for deployment • Provide a single location to access forms, view their status, and their results • Forms are searchable by title and description

  24. Electronic Forms • Data is prepopulated from University systems (ROSI, CM, etc.) • Incorporates workflows including sign off by departments, chairs/deans, SGS, etc. • Administrators: ability to change department / roles on the fly

  25. Electronic Forms • Next Steps… • March / April • Finish implementing forms functionality • Design and develop the administrative interface • Once the data is in, how do we interact with it • Summer 2015 • Deploy for simple single stage workflows • Student -> SGS • Units -> SGS (potentially)

  26. Electronic Forms • Next Steps… • Fall 2015 • Training for Chairs / Admins / Coordinators • Deploy complex forms with multi-stage workflows • Student -> Unit -> SGS • Longer Term Goals • Reporting (globally for all systems) • From Design Tools • Complex systems such as OAA and OGS
