Workshop Outcomes

The training focuses on the end-user experience as well as the staff interface used to manage CIS. This interactive session introduces you to the new interface and allows you to choose and experience the tools most useful to your student and clients. From the staff side, you will be able to add images and graphics, as well as messages, to your site. You will also be able to update and implement career plans. CIS will be looking for your input on additional reports that we should create for your use. 

Oregon CIS’ system-wide redesign has been years in the making, with our development team laying the foundations for this transition since 2016. CIS worked with an Oregon design firm to create a new design that prioritizes a simple and accessible interface. This also includes new functionality, such as a timeline of work.

The formal update of the system will go live in Fall 2019. These workshops will allow you to customize your site’s interface now before the rush of fall. CIS will also be hosting online webinars demonstrating how the newly-designed CIS will function in May and throughout the summer. The registration link for those webinars will be sent out in a couple weeks.

We hope you will join us!
