To All EMS Service Providers and Users:

This is a reminder that tomorrow, Tuesday, July 24th the campus Event Management System (EMS) will be unavailable for new data entry or updating all day.  During this time we will be completing an upgrade of the scheduling system.  Please do not log on.  Please also do not login to Virtual EMS (Room Request) through your portfolio.

The upgraded system will be available at 10am on Wednesday, July 25th and has relatively few changes from our existing system.  We will be scheduling EMS user group meetings in late August before the start of Fall semester to go over some of the important changes to the system.

I hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer (it’s not over yet – thank goodness!).  The fall term is nearly upon us and there are a few EMS-related items to bring to your attention.

  1. Orientation Interns have begun web requesting rooms for faculty advisors to meet with their group of new advisees.   The meetings will take place on Thursday Sep 2 (10am-11:30 or 12:30pm-2).   Requests for department-controlled spaces are for faculty from that specific department.  Please check for EMS Web Requests and change the booking status to Confirmed.
  2. There will be an EMS User Group meeting on Tuesday Sep 21, 9:30am, Usdan 110.  You will receive an Outlook invitation; I hope you will join us.  New and improved features of  the EMS version we began using this summer will be demonstrated. (See # 5 below for more information on the upgrade.)
  3. EMS Basic Training will take place on Wednesday Sep 29, 10am, Science Center 72.  Please let me know if you would like to attend.
