Concur Tip: Time Report Submission
    1. Employees MUST submit travel within 60 days of trip completion to prevent travel reimbursement from being reported as taxable income.
    2. The system will flag a traveler’s expense report with lots of warnings, such as the exceptions shown above!
    3. These exceptions only serve as warnings, they do not prevent report submission and no one is keeping track of the number of report exceptions an employee has received.
    4. Be prepared to see these warnings before actually reaching the 30 or 45 day mark. We are aware the system is doing this, this will not prevent you from submitting your report.

Safety Tip of the Week

  • Never leave personal property unattended in your classroom . Take your possessions with you.

Data tracking the path users take on our website also shows that a large percentage of users take one of the following 2 paths:

  1. Front Page, Current Students, Blackboard
  2. Current Students, Blackboard

A number of students also likely have the Blackboard login page bookmarked and only visit the Front Page, or Current Students if they are seeking a page other than Blackboard. Nonetheless, the 18.99% Page Views for Current Students is quite high considering the total number of different pages we have that are being viewed. The Current Students landing/front page should probably be considered an area to make important information for students more prominent. If you have any ideas let me know josh.wilkins@sctech.edu.

Accessibility Tips

Tip #1:  The three colors from the SCTC logo are not accessibility compliant when used in combination as text/font color and background color.

Example:  <SCTC-logo-blue> colored text with <SCTC-logo-green> colored  background will not meet contrast requirements.  Example Text (non-compliant).

The background color should be adjusted to a much lighter shade of green in order to increase the contrast.  Example Text (compliant).

Accessibility Do’s and Don’t

In Office documents:

Do: Use tables to represent tabular data in word documents, and other office documents like PowerPoint.

Example of formatting using a table: (This is example data for illustration purposes, not actual events)

Event Example Day Example Time Example Location Example
Student Achievement Luncheon Monday, April 2nd, 2018 10:00am Library
Book Buyback Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 1:00pm Bookstore
Public Speaking Tips Thursday, April 18th, 2018 2:00pm Event Center
Graduation Workshop Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 10:00am Event Center
Math Tutoring Monday, April 30th, 2018 11:00am Tutoring Center

 

Don’t: Use tabs to align tabular data. Using tabs to format data is exclusively a convention to help people see the data. This doesn’t help anyone who can’t see the alignment structure. To support assistive technology, an actual table with cells and headers should be used. Tables are also easier to visually process compared to tab aligned formatting.

Example of tab aligned data, with formatting characters shown: (This is example data for illustration purposes, not actual events)
An illustration of tabular data formatted using the tab key.

 

How-To: In your Office document go to the “Insert” tab and select “Table”. You can either define a number of rows and columns or you can insert a table from an existing Excel document.
