Scheduling Assistant Shutting Down June 30, 2019

Scheduling Assistant, UW-Madison's legacy system for student self-service scheduling with advisors and learning support staff, will be decommissioned on June 30, 2019. A new system, Starfish, was implemented at the beginning of 2019 to replace Scheduling Assistant. Starfish allows academic advisors, career services staff, and learning support staff to make their advising appointment and drop-in availability accessible to students for self-service scheduling.

Over the course of spring 2019 former Scheduling Assistant users were transitioned off that platform to Starfish. Beginning summer of 2019 and over the course of the 2019-2020 academic year academic advising, career services, and learning support units that did not previously make use of Scheduling Assistant will be offered the opportunity to begin using Starfish for their student scheduling needs. To learn more about Starfish please follow this link for both staff and student resources.

The Scheduling Assistant is an enhancement for calendar systems that enables people to quickly create appointments with other people on campus.
