Role-Based Email Upgrade

On March 18, 2020, the management interface for Role-Based Email will undergo an upgrade. After this upgrade, Role-Based Email creation and management will occur within onlineservices.uvic.ca. This upgrade includes the deprecation of the uid.uvic.ca system.

Role-Based Email management within onlineservices.uvic.ca will include the following feature enhancements:

  • Self-serve, real-time Role-Based Email creation
  • The ability for Role-Based Email owners to specify multiple owners
  • The ability for Role-Based Email owners to set an expiry date for their Role-Based Emails
  • The ability for Role-Based Email owners to set the display name of their Role-Based Email(s).  

As a result of this upgrade, each Role-Based Email will be assigned an expiry date starting in the Spring of 2021. Role-Based Email owners will be able to change this expiry date by logging in to onlineservices.uvic.ca.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact the Computer Help Desk at 250-721-7687 or helpdesk@uvic.ca.
