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.
The remaining information session will take place Feb. 12 from 2 to 3:30pm in the Keele campus Senate Chamber, N940 Ross Building.
