New System for our College
I might of mentioned this briefly in prior posts but I figure I make a separate one. A big change is coming to our college and it's going to effect our office in a huge way. In July the new system that the University bought for all of it's colleges (our college is part of it) will be implemented for us. It's a completely different system, it's complicated, it's like taking two steps forward and three steps back and the colleges that have it are not having a good time with it. It does have some advantages to it I have to admit but it's mostly negatives and numerous of adjustments to one's work flow. I'm not looking forward to this at all. I did try playing around with the system a few times in a "sandbox" environment but I just don't get it. The training the college is suppose to offer is extremely minimial, we might have to muddle through this way just like the other colleges. The college is also planning big changes to Registration for the Fall semester which will effect everyone's work. Also, another difficult thing is the preparation. Lots of bio-cleanup, checking and testing.
I don't know how to get out of this one. I thought the change to the system we have now was bad but this looks like it's going to be worse.
