Where we need your help:

We ask that you take note of any impressions, pain points and suggestions while using the system. Here are a few questions to help begin your feedback:

  • Were you able to navigate menus to find activity categories by using the top navigation menu and the search box?
  • Can you add a new service entry, and did you find the screens intuitive?
  • Can you download publications, and did you find the screens intuitive?
  • Can you view a CV and export it in the formats you need?
  • If you’re setup to do so, can you switch to a different faculty member to update their information?
  • When using the search menu to find where to enter a specific activity, was the definition or example text helpful for you to know where to input a particular activity?
  • Can you find where to add a new course lecture and enter one successfully?
  • Do you have a CV activity that you can’t determine where it should be viewed/entered?

If you encounter bugs that prevent you from doing your testing, please let us know as soon as possible. Otherwise, please compile your feedback and send it to Academic-It-Help@utah.edu.
