AdminImages Weekend Outage Scheduled June 21-23

AdminImages logoAdminImages, SMU’s document retention tool, will soon be undergoing major maintenance in two weeks time.

An outage has been scheduled to begin at 5 PM Friday, June 21 and will continue until the early morning of Monday, June 23. During this period, document scanning, viewing, and workflows will be unavailable. This outage allows OIT to upgrade AdminImages to the newset version of Perceptive Content, the underlying software that powers the service. This upgrade will enable a new web-based interface called Experience, which can be used in multiple browsers and will not require Java like WebNow. WebNow and all other features of AdminImages will remain unchanged after this upgrade. If you have any questions regarding this outage, let us know at help@smu.edu or 214-768-HELP.
