In early spring 2022, a group led  by Mechelle Clayton, Interim AVC of Enterprise Applications, met to discuss ways to simplify the access request process. They started by asking for feedback from campus users, central offices, ARCs, and others so they could understand the pain points and used that feedback to identify requirements and set priorities for changes to the current process and tools. Some of the pain points raised are: Security Roles: There are too many security roles, and descriptions are unclear. Combine roles into groups for easier selection and maintenance. Manual Processes: Current processes are manual. Paper forms and keying data into the system is time-consuming and often lead to errors and missing or conflicting information. Automating assignment of security access for new employees, employee terminations, and employee transfers into new positions would speed up the processes and result in cleaner role assignments. Documentation and Training: There is confusion about how to sign up for training and where to find help documentation. Navigation and Tracking: Access Resource Coordinators (ARCs)across Finance, HR/Payroll, Student Administration, and departments use different approaches for managing access requests.

On May 20, when students and staff logged in to ConnectCarolina, they found new home pages and a new way to get around in the system.  Even the log in page was new and modern.  The change to ConnectCarolina, dubbed the ConnectCarolina Makeover, was the culmination of months of work by the ConnectCarolina team to upgrade to the newest version of the software behind ConnectCarolina. The feedback we received immediately after the new look went live was that the makeover was well received.  Janet Rupert, Director of Accounts Payable and Travel Services commented “We are running smoothly.  Thank you so much for your time and energy in making this an easy transition.”  Carol McDonnell, Associate Director at the Friday Center for Continuing Education, told the team “…Other navigation screens are definitely different (but better) for the tiles.” However, like most major software upgrades, it wasn’t without a few bumps in the road.  The first few days saw some lagging performance, but the team worked with those who reported slowness and were able to make some changes to improve the performance. We also heard from those of you who use the Worklist tile that it wasn’t intuitive and caused a few … Read more
