myUNH

myUNH is used by eligible members of the University community to make campus-wide information, announcements, and resources easily accessible to the UNH community. This Standard explains the process, guidelines, and responsibilities for accessing and adding content to myUNH.

Purpose and Audience

The myUNH Portal is a central location for all UNH faculty, staff, and students to gain access to campus-wide information, announcements, and resources. It provides links to applications, services, webpages, documents, and forms, as well as the ability to search and bookmark favorites. Students, prospective students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni can all access myUNH, and it contains information relevant to the Durham, Law, Manchester, Online, and USNH communities.

myUNH Software

UNH AT SaaS is responsible for the support and operation of myUNH. The  software application supporting the portal is called OneCampus. 

Getting an Account

UNH staff and faculty with active user IDs and UNH email accounts who have primary responsibility to disseminate information for their school, department, office, or program may become a Publisher and create tasks, task centers, and announcements for myUNH. Request a Publisher account using the myUNH Portal web form

Guidelines for Publishing Tasks and Task Centers

Publishers can create, deactivate, and delete tasks, task centers, and announcements. Publishers are encouraged to use myUNH to share files and information that are specifically for current students, faculty and/or staff, rather than posting them on unh.edu.

  • Tasks – Tasks are links to specific applications, services, webpages, documents, and forms. Unrestricted documents that are linked from tasks should be stored in Box. Tasks can also include a description and user ratings/comments of the web page experience. Publishers can create a new task if there is no existing similar task.
  • Task Centers – Task Centers are groupings of tasks related by topic or audience. Publishers can create task centers and include their own tasks, as well as any other existing tasks on the portal.
  • Task/Task Center Announcements – Publishers may add announcements to the tasks or task centers they manage.

All tasks and task centers are created by Publishers and approved by SaaS.

Read myUNH Portal – Tasks and Task Centers for more information about using tasks and task centers.

Read myUNH Portal – Publisher Documentation for detailed guidelines on how to create tasks and task centers. 

Publishers can also request:

  • Featured tasks  
    • Up to six featured tasks may be pinned at the top of the tasks window.
    • Tasks remained pinned for one week with a possibility of extending up to two weeks if a valid reason is provided.
    • Tasks must be requested one week in advance, with the understanding that on occasion there will need to be an escalated process.
    • Featured tasks can be one-time only or pre-approved for multiple postings.

      • Importance

      • Time of year
      • Flexibility of dates
      • Freshness and variety of tasks
    • Request a featured task at myUNH Portal web form.

    • Up to three global announcements may appear at one time.

Training

You can sign up for or request myUNH training through Academic Technology Training at myUNH Publisher Training.

Responsibility for Content

Tasks posted by Publishers should provide links to those resources that provide useful, relevant information to their audience. 

Tasks and task centers on myUNH are publicly accessible, even if the web pages they link to are not. Anyone who posts a task or task center is responsible for the information posted in the task and must comply with all applicable policies and this Standard. Approval by SaaS does not remove this responsibility from the Publisher.

The Portal Governance Committee is responsible for decisions about implementation strategy, configuration, and system look and feel. The committee will approve all post-implementation workflows, be responsible for system approval escalations, and will be aligned with the Digital Communication Governance Team.

Archiving

MyUNH does not archive tasks, task centers, or announcements. Publishers have the ability to deactivate, reactive, and delete their own content.

Violations

AT SaaS reserves the right to remove any content that it considers to violate this Standard any other UNH policies. If inappropriate content is submitted, AT SaaS will contact the Publisher to discuss the issue. Unacceptable entries also may cause myUNH Publisher access to be suspended.

Reports regarding inappropriate content may be sent to AT SaaS.
