Vandalweb to MyUI Migration Questions

 

Q1: What is the new MyUI Dashboard?

A:  The MyUI dashboard integrates many disparate administrative functions and functionality into “cards”. These “cards” are used to categorize administrative function to improve efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction of online workflows.

Q2: Why are we moving from Vandalweb to MyUI?

A: The goal of the MyUI project is to capture and optimize every aspect of the digital experience with an easy to use dashboard.  Additionally, Vandalweb is built on dated technology that is being phased out.

Q3: How do I access MyUI?

A: Go to my.uidaho.edu and log in with your University of Idaho credentials.

Q4: What is the schedule to shift from Vandal Web to MyUI?

A:  MyUI is live for use now.  While a definite date has not been set yet, VandalWeb will be turned off as soon as all necessary functions can be moved to MyUI. 

Q5: From the OIT website, “Navigation in VandalWeb will be turned off during the Spring Semester, 2024”, is mid-semester the best time to make a critical change?

A:  No date for turning off VandalWeb has been set but timing was definitely considered and is considered every time we make changes. 

Q6: Is MyUI more expensive than Vandalweb?  

A:  There is no cost for the software as it is included in what we pay Ellucian, the vendor that provides Banner. 

Q7: How many people worked on this project?

A:  People across U of I have worked on the project, from design and development to testing and support. MyUI is part of our larger ecosystem supported by OIT and department personnel. 

Q8: How many people will maintain MyUI?

A:  The same team that implements Vandalweb and all of our other systems will maintain MyUI. No additional personnel have been added for direct support of MyUI.

Q9: Are faculty and students involved with maintenance, revisions and testing revisions of MyUI?

A:  Yes. Faculty and staff were involved in initial designs and we continue to receive input from across the university on desired new features.  While we continue to have a robust beta testing group,  ????we are always looking to improve new and current functionality. If anyone would like exclusive access to test software that has not yet been released, they can become a tester.
