Changes to Side Bar
Posted by Melinda Barnsley, Last modified by Melinda Barnsley on 21 August 2019 03:34 PM

The myPlymouth Sidebar has undergone a number of updates:

  • Some among the community will notice their myPlymouth has ‘shrunk’, this is due to being on a old-style myPlymouth that was designed to take up an entire screen. These community members will be updated automatically to a new version where content is centered on the page. The old ‘full-width’ view is being retired. The new version allows for a more responsive design which optimizes the view for many types of devices - (laptops, tablets, phones).

    Your Office 365 Profile Image will now display at the top of the sidebar.

  • This is the same image that displays when emailing others through O365.
  • This should immediately update once you change it within O365.
  • If you have not setup an image in your O365 profile, a generic placeholder will display.
    • This placeholder will act as a link to your Profile Settings where you can add an image.
  • By setting a profile image in Office 365, you are ‘opting-in’ to this feature.
    • Your PSU ID will display below your O365 Profile Image (or placeholder). 
      • These ID's are obfuscated until you hover your mouse over them.
    • Those actively employed by PSU and active students will also find their USNH ID adjacent to their Student/Banner ID.
      • These ID's are obfuscated until you hover your mouse over them.
    • Old/Unneeded links have been removed/replaced/updated.
    • The 'Dashboard' display of FlexCash, PantherBucks, Print Balance, MyDrive Quota, and Password Status have been converted to be icon based.

    • The 'Add Stuff to MyPlymouth' and 'myPlymouth Themes' links have been converted to be icon based.
      • All links that have been converted to be icon based have helper-text describing them when you hover your mouse over them.

    • The 'My Bookmarks' section of the sidebar has been removed. Please use your Browser to create/maintain bookmarks instead.
    • The 'Directory Search' section of the sidebar has been removed. Please use the Organization Chart found in Microsoft Teams at https://go.plymouth.edu/teamsorg or use https://go.plymouth.edu/phonebook
    • The 'Hot Links' section of the sidebar has been removed.
    • The 'myTab’ tab has been replaced with ‘Campus Resources’.
