Reminder for Colleague Users

Datatel ProductionIf you are a regular user of Colleague, you will need to start using Internet Explorer when using Colleague.

As noted in the post on April 16th, if you prefer to keep your default browser set to Chrome or another browser, ITS suggests setting Internet Explorer’s homepage to “https://ui.allegheny.edu/production/index.htm” for ease of access to Colleague.  This will allow you to keep your preferred default browser yet still access Colleague with a simple double click.  

If you choose to do this, you will begin to access Colleague by clicking on the desktop shortcut for IE not the Colleague Production shortcut.

Should you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

Colleague users using Chrome will need to move to Internet Explorer

ITS recommends using Internet Explorer (IE)  for Colleague moving forward.

Beginning in April, the Silverlight plugin that Colleague utilizes will no longer work in the Google Chrome browser. This will cause Chrome to display an alert when attempting to access Colleague.

If you prefer to use Chrome or another browser as your default,  we suggest setting Internet Explorer’s homepage to “https://ui.allegheny.edu/production/index.htm” for ease of access to Colleague.  This will allow you to keep your preferred default browser yet still access Colleague with a simple double click.  (If you choose to do this, you will begin to access Colleague by clicking on the desktop shortcut for IE not the Colleague Production shortcut.)
