MyUW - Release Notes - 2015-03-24

Release notes for the Tuesday 2015-03-24 release, which made some style changes in Beta and addressed a couple minor issues.

MyUW (Madison) changes

Change affecting both Classic and Beta MyUW

Less clutter in Help app

The Help app is less cluttered, with attractive icons under Beta, and with a link to the new Known Issues page. ( MyUW - Known Issues ),

Smaller minimal widgets representing favorites

Favorites under Beta become even more minimal in this release.

Less confusion about SSNs

The app that lets a few users know they need to update their SSN records with the university stops appearing to the many users who do not need to make this update. (Before this release, users could see what seemed to be a message about their needing to take action about their SSN records.)

My UW System portal changes

Removed UW System News app from System portal.

(Technically, the UW System News app was removed on 2013-03-10, through expiring the content through the UI. This release completed removing this content.)
