On Wednesday, March 27, EVMS will debut an improved intranet site. Known as MyPortal, the site was custom built to help staff, faculty, students and residents find the internal resources they need and accomplish tasks more efficiently and effectively.
MyPortal was designed for ease of use. Borrowing from the design of the new public website, it offers simplified navigation and provides information about each department in a uniform and consistent manner. Also, the entire private site is searchable. For instance, you can look for policies and forms from any department using key words.
MyPortal will contain relevant content from www.evms.edu so that users will not need to go back and forth between the public and private sites. Calendar and news features will provide information intended exclusively for an internal audience. MyPortal will provide convenient links to the software applications that users access on a daily basis, such as BlackBoard and the Time and Attendance System. MyPortal will be accessible on and off campus; users will need their network credentials to log on.
Over the next few months, MarComm and department content editors will continue to expand content on the new site. The current intranet site, info.evms.edu, will remain available during that time. Once the transition is complete — expected sometime this summer — the old site will be phased out.
