What would a successful solution look like?
What outcome will you have at the conclusion of this project? If this proposal is one of a multi-phase project, please explain your plans, goals, and timelines for subsequent phases.
Creation of a portlet in the campus portal that would surface alerts to employees and students when they have pending forms that require action. This will require the development of API endpoints developed in Hyland which can be utilized to push alerts into a Portlet within the campus Portal. It will also require development work by the Customer Engagement team to surface the alerts in the portal itself.

Once established campus users will receive both an email alert and an alert when they log into the Portal when action is required on a form.
Is this project mandated or required?
No mandate or hard requirement driving this request
What is the reason for the project being completed by the deadline?
Describe the business requirement or reason for the project deadline.
Many of the manual processes being converted between now and August impact academic departments which are heavy users of the Portal. Having the Portlet in production when B&F launches the new forms will allow them to clearly communicate in one campaign effort, the different ways that users will receive notifications about pending actions.

Project Impact

How will you measure the impact of this project?
What are some metrics or KPIs that will be used to measure success? Think about the five metrics to measure: quality, quantity, timeliness, cost, and customer satisfaction.
Reduction in amount of time required to process signature approval processes, before and after the forms are implemented with Portal alerts.
Click rates on the alert messages within the portal
What are the consequences of not doing this project?
For example: direct significant negative consequences to the University, unable to conduct basic services; failure to resolve customer complaints or requests; loss of opportunity for improved service delivery or efficiency. Please explain.
The campus may miss an opportunity to expand the usefulness of the portal for faculty, staff and students to check their status, receive alerts, and do daily activities pertinent to their relationship with the University.

Business & Finance have requested the development of a Portlet in the campus portal that will surface alerts for employees and students that need to take action on a form or approval process.

As our team begins to work on the Hyland Unity forms project we simultaneously need to identify appropriate infrastructure for the campus community to access delivered forms. It is my understanding that there is a campus initiative to continue to push users to the portal and this project presents an opportunity for increasing usership of that central platform. Ultimately, the goal is to not have yet another client/web based platform for people to interact with. This project impacts the entire campus and looking forward to being a part of exploring the normalization of portal usage, as appropriate, for these daily processes. Reaching out to discuss best next step for establishing a portlet and also explore options for calling to Hyland to display pending items for users.
