Recent changes to Banner have affected our ability to provide class rolls from previous semesters in Toolkit. After grades are rolled in Banner, we cannot get class rolls that exclude withdrawn and dropped students. Because email cannot be sent to students who withdrew or dropped, we can no longer email students from previous terms.
However, we have developed this work-around: You can download the roster from Blackboard and use the students’ GID information to send a message through Groupwise by copying their User Names from that column. A video help file of this process is available.
UPDATE: The email function for Fall 2010 courses in Toolkit will be restored on Dec. 19, 2010. Toolkit code sees the dates of Dec. 19, May 15, August 15 as the end of term; after those dates, it strips status and the roster is again available. It is only the time period between the grades rolling to Banner and the end of term date (for the appropriate semester) that you will need to use the work around I described earlier.
