For faculty and staff

myExtension release delayed


While the planning section of myExtension is live, the release of the event scheduling and reporting sections has been delayed.

“We had planned for most of the remaining modules of myExtension to go live on Sept. 15,” said Mark Stillwell, extension project administrator. “However, we want to release additional modules only after they have been reviewed and tested to ensure a quality product.”

WebApps will continue to be available until myExtension is ready. All faculty and staff should continue to schedule and report from their approved plan in WebApps until further notice. All program planning data entered into myExtension will be available in WebApps for scheduling and reporting, and data entered in WebApps will be available in myExtension when it is released.

The settings and event scheduling sections are in the final programming stage, and usability testing will begin soon. Sections that will include success stories and program impacts are in the early programming stages.

“Don’t forget that all reporting for FY 2015 should be complete by midnight on Sept. 14,” reminds Paula Hudson, ETCS database programmer/analyst. “At that time, WebApps will be locked down to ensure consistent demographic data in future reports. You cannot schedule or report on FY 2015 events once WebApps is locked down.”

Leuci named to engagement scholarship academy
