Hello Unit Liaisons,
As reported previously, OARS will migrate to a new database and application platform in a single release the weekend of December 5. The OARS system will be unavailable for users beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 4 through Monday morning, December 7. The new OARS platform will be available Monday, December 7 at 7 a.m.
New OARS will be noticeably different from the current version. Along with a new look and feel, it will be faster, more secure, and more flexible. Visit the OARS Migration upgrade page for a complete list of benefits of the new OARS, what’s changing and what’s not. You will also find a communication archive and links to past presentations.
As a reminder, a broader demonstration of the new OARS system will be presented during the Unit Liaison meeting, tomorrow, November 11 in the Forum Hall of Palmer Commons beginning at 9:00 a.m.
We are excited about the new OARS and appreciate your patience and flexibility as we prepare to bring it to you.
