Q: How did my information get into this site?  

A: The contact information that is populated in the site now is the contact information provided in the previous self-service site. IT has moved this information to the new site so users won't need to re-populate their information.  

Q: Why is my office phone missing in voice contacts?  

A: Office phones are populated based on information in the college directory that is updated nightly. If your direct office phone number is not listed in the directory, that phone will not receive an ENS message.
