Password – need to add the option of a periodic update.  Right now the password never changes.

Personal data – need to remove the SS# and only show employee ID#.

No notification that the roster has been submitted and cannot be edited.


8.  Training: 

Ongoing training (each term) for submission of rosters, including final grade rosters.
