Re: Absence Declaration Enhancement Now Available


Hi everyone,

We are pleased to announce that the upgrade to the Absence Declaration tool has launched. It is now available to students in ACORN and to administrators in the new Online Administrative Student Information Services (OASIS) platform. OASIS is where we will be building new ROSI functionality in the future.

The new Absence Declaration has undergone usability testing by students and staff across all three campuses. It will allow administrators to track current, past and cancelled absences with more detail, including date, course, session, instructor, students’ notes and administrators’ notes.

Note: This is an upgrade to the existing Absence Declaration. If your division has not been using the Absence Declaration, this will not change your business processes.

We have updated our instructions to students on ACORN Help on how to declare, edit and cancel an absence declaration in ACORN. Please update your materials to reflect these changes and feel free to link to our resources.

If you were unable to join us for a Connect+Learn session to learn more about the enhancement, you can watch a recording here.

You can also find out more about Absence Declaration in OASIS in the Enterprise Service Centre.

We would like to thank the project team and the divisional participants who have helped to make this project a success. We would also like to thank all SIS users who have supported this initiative.
