On Dec. 2, the University announced that the COVID-19 building access status feature would be moved from the Safer Illinois app to the Illinois app. What prompted this decision?
“Usage statistics showed that people are primarily using the Safer Illinois app for the building access status feature,” Allison Copenbarger Vance, content strategy director at the University explained. The building access status feature will now be added to the Illinois app.
“It will be more efficient for University operations because it will streamline the data flow process and the customer service process. We believe this will save staff time and also speed customer service for users,” Vance said.
