ITServices launched a brand new portal in March which has already been accessed by more than 43,000 users! The new portal is still known as MyQueensU and is still found at my.queensu.ca. However, it offers more customization options than the old portal and it moves away from duplicating publicly available content. MyQueensU remains the place to access PeopleSoft Resources, Research Accounts, and SOLUS, the replacement for QCARD.
A feature that is new to the updated MyQueensU is the Palette tab, which is like your portal "shopping cart". It displays all of the applications that you have access to based on your role at Queen's, and is also the place where new applications will be made available when they are introduced in the future. You cannot delete or rearrange any of the applications on this page; however, you can add each of these applications to your Home page if you wish.
While the new MyQueensU has a similar look and feel to the old one, one of its major advantages is that it is now really easy to customize your Home page to suit your preferences. Thus, when you first log in to the new portal, your Home page has only a Welcome Message on it so you can build it out the way you want to use it:
One significant shift in the updated portal is the move away from channels which are collections of links to websites for which authentication is not required. It just doesn't make sense for someone to log in to the portal just to find a link to a publicly available website, so ITServices instead suggests the following:
