Filed under: SharePoint, [Resolved], [Scheduled], [Service Alert] — Sharon Steeples @ 9:15 am

UPDATE 10:42am: This work is now complete.

The SharePoint Team will be deploying an upgrade to the Collagen Forms Service (hosted on forms.essex.ac.uk) this morning between 10:30am and 10:45am on Monday 1 March 2021.

We expect to make all required changes in 5 minutes or less. However, as a precautionary measure we are asking staff and students not to attempt to edit any of the below form types until after 10:45am, as any changes in that timeframe could be lost:

  • PG DRF
  • UG DRF
  • PG Dean Approval Form
  • Dissertation Extension Request
  • Research Away Request
  • Change of Mode of Study Request
  • Request for Withdrawal
  • CAS Extension Request
  • ECF Case File Workflow

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

We’ll update you as soon as the work is complete.
