Rolling out eForms and our new employee Intranet

Today we announced the Judson ISD Intranet, available through the MyJISD Portal.  The Intranet is an employee focused web site, where Judson ISD employees can go to search for needed information.  It is a constant work in progress, as departments add more documents and information each day.  The Intranet already has a variety of manuals, handbooks, forms, and administrative procedures. The Intranet has a very robust search feature, which indexes key words from web pages, PDF, MS Word documents and more.

As part of the transition to the Intranet, all PDF/Word forms have been moved from eduphoria! FormSpace to the departmental Intranet sites.  The only forms that are now in FormSpace are eForms, which are electronic forms that are submitted online.  Once a form is submitted, the user receives a routing status update as the form moves through its approval process, keeping them informed of the form’s whereabouts at all times.  With the opening of the Intranet, we rolled out an expanding selection of eForms in eduphoria! FormSpace

We made these changes to improve information flow across the organization, and in the case of eForms, to speed up the form submittal process, and save printing costs.
