It was supposed to take 36 hours, but SmartSite's programming team completed the system's latest update in one night.
This major upgrade significantly fixes and improves existing tools, adds several new ones and most importantly, introduces the version of SmartSite that will replace MyUCDavis' course tools.
About the update, SmartSite's program manager Kirk Alexander states, "it was the last major hurdle before SmartSite could become UC Davis' preferred set of course tools. Another benefit of upgrading in June is that we will have both summer sessions to test the system in a production environment."

While steps were taken to ensure a smooth upgrade, there is always the possibility of occasional, unexpected system behaviors and bugs.
