The University of Colorado’s Open Enrollment period for the 2021-22 plan-year runs from April 19 - May 7. This three-week period is your chance to assess how well your current medical, dental, or vision coverages meet your needs and make changes. For additional information, Employee Services has provided a virtual course that walks through the benefits offered, changes to the plans, and additional ways to help save money with pre-tax health savings options.
Calling all Trainers
The Help Desk's newest member, ClydeBot, is still in training and actively seeking trainers to help him learn. Everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to ask ClydeBot questions about OIT services. The questions he does not know, he will be trained on. To interact with ClydeBot, navigate to his temporary page and begin asking questions.
Service Catalog Transition
When considering a service that will be released to campus, a copy of the Service Catalog Template should be created, named appropriately, and worked on over the course of the project. Once the form has been filled out in its entirety, notify Sarah for a review. The form, if done correctly, will contain all information that the Help Desk will need to support the service (testing done by the Help Desk is still mandatory before the service goes live).

The Great Cherwell Clean Up of 2021
Over the last six-weeks, the BI Analyst and CSRM teams have worked to pull information from Cherwell into 11 unique and live dashboards, containing 13 years of data! The information from these dashboards will be used to make future decisions and provides a better understanding of the services that the campus is requesting.
