Good Morning,

A UoD IT team  have been  investigating  this issue in conjunction with our 3rd party support partner and these services are now working through queues and are starting to operate as normal. We (and our 3rd Party support partner) continue to monitor these services.

Apologies for any inconvenience  – we will update you shortly …

Update @ 15: 37 on 22/12/17

Please be advised that this  issue  has now been confirmed as resolved by our Third Party partner . We have monitored  the situation for a 3 hour period and also confirm this is the case.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused

 

QUEMIS Currently Unavailable

At present we are in the process of migrating QUEMIS (estates and building repairs request system) to the new version. As a result of this the older system has to be taken offline to ensure that the data is copied to the new system correctly.

This means that there will be a downtime from 2:30 today until tomorrow at which point the new system will take over.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused in the meantime

iGRasp – Essential Maintenance – 20 September 2017 (18:00 – 22:00 BST)

Lumesse (the providers of the iGRasp application) will be carrying out essential maintenance to the LIVE iGRasp environment on Wednesday 20th September 2017 between 18:00 – 22:00 BST.

As a result of this, i-GRasp will be unavailable for up to 10 minutes whilst the maintenance takes place.

Please note that this will affect BOTH the administration aspects of the application which iGRasp users interact with, and also the front end websites which our candidates interact with. (Due to the short downtime window, there will be NO message displayed to candidates on the front facing web pages. Should however you receive any queries or complaints from candidates as a result of this, please do not hesitate in contacting the University Service Desk (Help4U@dundee.ac.uk).

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

iGrasp on Chrome

We have been advised by Lumesse (the providers of iGRasp – the University’s eRecruitment application) that they have had several reports of issues with pop-up windows showing blank pages. They have been able to identify that this was only happening in some versions of Google Chrome. On further investigation, they have identified that this was caused by an update made by Google, and unfortunately this had an impact on the iGRasp product.

As a result, if you are using Google Chrome and have experienced this issue then please update your Google Chrome Browser.

Could you also please:

 

  • close all chrome windows
  • go to task manager to make sure there are no chrome processes running
  • then re-launch it

If you have completed the above update and still have an issue when using Google Chrome, please do not hesitate in contacting help4u@dundee.ac.uk
