Known Issues

  1. I am not receiving messages sent to an Inform list.
    • Employees are listed on the Inform list with their primary email address. If an employee does not have a primary email address set, they will not receive Inform mailings until they set one. You can check for a primary email address by looking someone up by name in the OSU Online Directory: http://oregonstate.edu/findsomeone
    • Employees will be on different Inform lists depending on their employee type. Not all inform messages are sent to all lists.
  2. How do I send a message to an Inform list?
  3. How do I remove myself from an Inform list?
    • Because the Inform lists are auto-synced from a Banner feed, we can't remove individuals. You can filter messages to a folder if you do not wish to read them.
