Duluth updates (December 2014)

Implementation of Salesforce
UMD One Stop went live with Salesforce on October 27. To date, service has been provided to over 2,000 student walk-ins. Financial Aid has been the bulk of the visits with Forms, Submissions, and Student Records coming in second.

Upgrade update
UMD is wrapping up the four Student Experience Preview sessions with approximately 140 staff attendees with two more sessions scheduled for January and February. We’ve received great feedback and our staff appreciate the ability to see the student view. Next up—in-person CCS training and scheduling Learning Labs for our users. Also, we are participating with User Acceptance Testing.
