Project Update: Yale Message Project

June 28, 2018

Yale Message is a cloud-based application that replaces the University Messaging Service (Message III) currently used by schools and departments to send directed communications to large lists of email recipients (such as subscription lists).

The project is underway and the training on the new tool has commenced.  The project team is in the process of onboarding new units to Yale Message approximately every two weeks. To date, the team has onboarded 60 of 140 units and 450 of 857 users; including, most recently, Ben Franklin College, the English Department, Economics, the Music Department, Pauli Murray College, Political Science, Geology & Geophysics and the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning.

As part of this ongoing process, the team is working with each department to identify the lists, email templates and users that require migration from Message III to Yale Message. In addition, the training schedule is being solidified with a focus on training student-centered units this summer prior to the start of the new academic year.

The next session is on Wednesday, July 18 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at Brady Auditorium, 310 Cedar Street. Not convenient to get to Brady? This session can also be viewed virtually as a webinar.
