Advisees Who Have Left UK Reappearing in Hub

On Monday several advisors reported that advisees who had previously left UK were re-appearing under the "My Advisees" list in the Advising Hub, even though they had previously had their advisor assignment end-dated.  According to Sarah Ballard, the mass end dating process for advisor-advisee relationships that was run last week ran into some issues due to some manual errors. SLCM is correcting this data and this is what is impacting the advisee list and is something that is likely being seen by most advisors. This will take a day or two to fully correct.
