How is the "Greenbar" process different in UAccess Student than in the old SIS system?
In SIS, the process for creating the Schedule of Classes included many steps: a copy of the previous like semester was created, from which excel spreadsheets (Greenbars) were made available to departments. The department made any necessary changes to the course offerings, submitted the revised spreadsheet, and waited for the information to appear in SIS. In the meantime, Room and Course Scheduling received the spreadsheets, reviewed and revised them for formatting and content errors, uploaded the information into scheduling software to assign rooms to those sections needing rooms, and finally uploaded that information into SIS.
In UAccess Student, the process involves fewer steps: departments are given access to the system itself with a copy of the previous like semester pre-loaded. Rather than making changes to a spreadsheet, the department can add, change and delete sections directly in the system for a period of time. After that open scheduling period is complete, Room and Course Scheduling does preliminary reviews for content, then assigns rooms and inserts those room assignments into UAccess Student. This process cuts down on unnecessary work for both the academic departments and Room and Course Scheduling, resulting in a quicker, more efficient scheduling process. After the original open scheduling period has ended, departments continue to have access to fields pertaining to enrollments, instructor names, and student access to courses, a rough equivalent of the information on SIS's screen 131. Room and Course Scheduling continues to utilize online forms for adding, changing and cancelling sections after the open scheduling period has ended.
