UW-Madison : Alternative unified path to Preferred Name

The existing Personal Information and Student Personal Information apps remain, with their self-service Preferred Name features, un-changed.

This release adds an additional, purpose-specific instance of the Preferred Name self-service tool, which will work for all users for whom either or both of Personal Information and Student Personal Information were intended to work. This simplifies the support path for delivering this self-service application. Either the new unified Preferred Name self-service tool will work for you, or self-service preferred name management is not available to you in MyUW.
