[Isthd] Technical changes to WatIAM to support Improving Student Name Usage project – Dec 16-20

What is happening? To support the “Improving Student Name Usage” project, changes are being implemented to WatIAM so that a student or employee’s preferred/chosen first name will appear as their first name in WatIAM, and in systems that receive name information from WatIAM. (Note: systems that receive name information from Quest will not be impacted with this implementation.)

What is happening? Some changes to how email accounts are provisioned in Connect are being implemented:
