On March 12, the Office of Information Technology will begin a 4-day transition to a new Identity Management System (IDM). IDM is a tool used to manage NetIDs and email accounts. This system will automate account creation 48 hours after appointments for new employees are made in UT Share and eliminate time-consuming account request forms. In addition, the Identity Management System will update the global address book based on changes to employee records in UT Share.
All new NetID and email accounts requested after 5 p.m. on March 11 will not be processed until the completion of the upgrade. Within 48 hours after the approximate 4-day transition period, the Identity Management System will automatically process NetIDs and email accounts for new employees appointed in UT Share.
To learn more about the Identity Management System, please visit our Identity Management webpage.
