An enhancement to ACCmail will go live with Workday on October 16, 2021. All new employees hired after the go-live date will be provided an ACCmail as part of the hiring business process in Workday. In the past, newly hired employees had to activate their email account, which will not be the case in Workday. Personal email addresses used by an applicant will get converted to an ACCmail account during the hiring process.
This change also includes temporary workers (hourly employees) and student workers. Temporary workers will have ACCmail addresses created for them without requiring them to claim their email addresses.
This change will also apply to all employees retroactively; every active worker (employee) and temporary worker (hourly employee) who have not previously claimed an assigned ACCmail address. Returning temporary workers who become active again will also have their institutional email address automatically claimed and populated in Colleague.
All Workday notifications and reminders for individuals will go to their ACCmail address. Managers are encouraged to inform their staff of this change since the College will send information electronically to all workers who may not have had an ACCmail previously.
