Custom Field "Department Name" Changes

Summary

We are updating the “Department Name” custom field in the OT system to match the current department list at Syracuse University. Updates will be made on Tuesday January 19th, 2021 at 8am.

Details

The “Department Name” custom field was created many years ago and the list of departments was incomplete and now has become dated. This became an issue as we found not many projects wanted to use the field because it did not have the right values. To update the custom field, we are partnering with Enterprise Process Support (EPS) to deliver a list of departments based from the Peoplesoft system to bring almost 200 department names to the OT custom field. This is part of an initiative to bring standardization and use authoritative sources within the OT system.

To help organize this new list of departments, we will add the derived organizational unit (OU) as a prefix to each department. For example, “Biology” will be renamed to “AS-Biology”. This will group all the Arts and Sciences (AS) departments, and other OU departments together to help locate the correct department.

We are also removing the dormitory names in this department list. There is no need to have these values in this custom field.

These changes will be made on Tuesday January 19th, 2021 at 8am. There are about 300 issues throughout OT currently using this custom field. All these issues will be edited in the background in a non-disruptive way. We will ensure you or anyone involved with these issues will not be notified of the change. Once the change is complete, feel free to use the Department Name custom field for your project.
