Release Notes Summary
We're excited to announce that the MyPath Chico release is nearing readiness for pilot deployment! This document describes the features and fixes included in MyPath version Chico, the spring 2017 release. The Pilot Preview release is scheduled to begin on May 1, 2017 and the Production release is scheduled for May 8, 2017.
Pilot Release Date
Production Release Date
4:00PM - 7:00PM PST
Pilot Site Release Preview
In order to allow colleges time to review and implement the changes and enhancements to be deployed in the spring 2017 release (version Chico) on May 1, 2017, the code will be released to the Pilot environment early. Colleges are highly encouraged to make use of the pilot environment to test student-facing functions in a non-public environment without any worry of causing end-user confusion or technical issues. This code will remain in Pilot so that colleges can continue to test in a non-production environment even past the release date itself. The pilot environment will be updated prior to the next release in 2017.
If you have any questions about accessing the pilot environment for your school, please do not hesitate to reach out to the MyPath Implementation Specialist, Mike Plant, at firstname.lastname@example.org or the MyPath Product Manager, Mike Caruso, at email@example.com.
Colleges participating in the pilot environment are also highly encouraged to join the Wednesday afternoon weekly Pilot discussion, where features and issues can be discussed with other pilot participants, as well as the CCCTC product staff and Unicon development team present. Please reach out to Mike Plant or Mike Caruso if you would like to join and do not have the meeting details already.
