W&M Communicators and Administrators

Please check the following places and make updates as appropriate:

  • Emails – especially templates and auto-generated emails that may include instructions to “log in” or “check your email” (for students).
  • Websites – search your website for references that need to be updated. For sites in Cascade, the search tool can be helpful for this. But be sure to review any documents and PDFs that may not show up in search results.
  • Forms – check surveys, webforms, and printed forms that might reference either of the two items.
  • Instruction Sheets – these will often contain instructions to log in to a system using your "WMuserid".  It should be changed to "W&M Username".

We understand that making these changes can take time, but please try to have changes completed by the end of the month of October.  Thank you for your help as we work together to strengthen William & Mary’s identity!
