Automated importation of faculty course schedules into your Outlook Calendar
Starting for the Fall 2012 semester, faculty's course schedules will be automatically imported into their Outlook calendar. This decision was made collectively by the Deans on campus in order to simplify scheduling needs across campus.
This document describes the process in which faculty will now have their course schedules automatically imported into their Outlook calendar
About two weeks before the start of each semester, the process will run automatically adding all scheduled courses from SIS into Outlook. If a faculty member adds or drops a course after that time, there will be no update made automatically to their calendar. Faculty will still be able to manually modify these courses as well as add any updates as necessary.
One caveat that will arise from this is the automated process does not account for holidays or other campus closings throughout the semester. For example, the day of and day after Thanksgiving will show as having scheduled courses. Faculty may either simply ignore these extra entries or manually delete these occurrences out of their calendar.
