Will Microsoft Vista work with Campus Management and/or the portal?
Answer: Users who enter Campus Management through the portal can use Microsoft Vista. Power users (those with SAPGUI loaded on their desktops) should continue to use Internet Explorer 6.0.

I am an employee who is also a student. My name is different in the HR/Payroll module and in SIS. When data is converted into Campus Management, will information that is different in the modules (HR/Payroll and Campus Management) be overridden by one of the modules?

Please notify your business officer for correction of HR/Payroll master data or Michelle Nordin for correction of Campus Management master data.

There is a delay in switching students in the Medical Center from Active Directory accounts to MC accounts. Can this delay be eliminated?
Answer: All students are assigned a UK e-mail address and Active Directory account (AD) when they are admitted to the university. There are requirements in the Medical Center for students to have MC accounts, rather than AD accounts. The Customer Service Center handles the movement of the student account from one domain to another. In might be possible to notify the Customer Service Center with entire classes of students to be moved at one time prior to their coming to campus.
