yu link, York University’s intranet, was launched in the summer of 2013 to provide all employees with quick and easy access to the internal, York-specific information they need to do their jobs effectively and efficiently; a place where networking and community could be fostered.
In 2015, a series of engagement sessions were held across the campus to learn about users’ experiences with and reactions to yu link. This feedback was incorporated into a new operational strategy to make yu link a more useful internal communications tool.
On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the University will be launching a significantly enhanced yu link featuring a refreshed look and feel, user-friendlier navigation, single login to access SM@RT Buy and Concur and coming in March, there will be a single sign on for HR Self-Serve.
Community-wide information sessions have been scheduled at both the Keele and Glendon campuses to convey details about the changes coming to yu link.
Feb. 8 from 9am to 10:30am in the Glendon campus BMO Conference Centre
Feb. 12 from 2pm to 3:30pm in the Keele campus Senate Chamber, N940 Ross Building
