Welcome to The Weekly Wag, your home for quick news and updates on the ctcLink project.

Woof to You for Activating Your ctcLink Account!
Delta Dog is wagging her tail in appreciation for all of you who have already activated your ctcLink accounts. Curious to know how many?
- 291 faculty (just 69 to go)
- 535 staff (just 64 to go)
That’s a whopping 86% of you … woof, woof!
Activation is now open for all faculty, staff and students. For instructions, view the video or read the guide. And remember Delta Dog’s friendly reminder: Write down your ctcLink ID and safely store your password. Once you’ve activated your account, review your personal details to make sure they are accurate.
Submit and Approve Time This Friday
See step-by-step instructions for submitting and approving time in the aptly named Time: Entering and Approving area of the Help and Resources page. Earlier this week, Gretchen Erhart sent a reminder to all employees and supervisors. In case it got buried in your inbox, read her February 23 message.
Dig In to ctcLink With How-to Guides
You can now find 17 accessible documents and 6 videos covering employee-focused topics in the How-to Guides section of Help and Resources. Students are getting similar help with 5 documents, 4 links to Canvas modules and 7 videos at ctcLink Tutorials for Students. These guides will help you do various tasks and functions within ctcLink. More will be added in the coming weeks.
Placement in ctcLink
Thanks to Shannon Waits for sharing changes to placement in our new ctcLink system. In case you missed her February 24 email to campus, she mentioned that placement looks very different in ctcLink, but hopefully we’ll find it’s easier to engage with. She shared a handy job aid to guide to us through the process. You can also find it by going to the Placement and Testing Center’s Staff Resources page.
If you have questions, contact the team at the Placement and Testing Center or drop by their Zoom Lobby. Shannon is also happy to come to department meetings or set up one-on-ones to walk people through the process.
Students Are Learning About ctcLink
Students are receiving weekly emails to build awareness of ctcLink. This week they’re being encouraged to activate their accounts so they can enroll in spring quarter classes. Read the February 24 message and see all past messages at ctcLink Student News.
Fun fact: Many of us have been referring to the process of signing up for classes as “registration.” It’s time to change. In ctcLink, that process is known as “enrollment.”
