Action Required for Departments that Direct Users to My Pitt

We Need Your Help. Please Take Action.

We're launching new versions of My Pitt and Pitt Mobile this summer, and we want to ensure a smooth transition for all students, faculty, and staff.

If your department has web pages, emails, or other materials that direct users to My Pitt, please update those materials as soon as possible by following the guidelines in our Content Transition Overview document.  

You can also contact our 24/7 IT Help Desk and submit a case with "My Pitt Content Transition" in the Subject field. We'll follow up to discuss your needs and develop a strategy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What materials might my department need to update? 

You may have a variety of materials that reference My Pitt. Consider reviewing the following items:

  • Printed materials (brochures, letters, posters, postcards, etc.)
  • Email templates
  • Direct or "deep" links into My Pitt locations
  • Screen shots
  • Documentation instructing users to access services via the My Resources menu

Do I need to update links to my.pitt.edu? 

No. Any references to my.pitt.edu will redirect to the new My Pitt after it launches. 

Do I need to update "deep" or direct links to My Pitt content? 

Yes. Any link longer than my.pitt.edu needs to be updated. For example, these links would not work after the new My Pitt launches: 

Do I need to update links to askcathy.pitt.edu?  

No. Links to askcathy.pitt.edu will continue to work but will redirect to my.pitt.edu. 

Do I need to update links to AskCathy Task Centers?  

No. Links to AskCathy Task Centers will continue to work but will redirect to my.pitt.edu. 

What if I need to finalize and send materials before the new My Pitt launches? 

We can work with you to create a short link (for example, pi.tt/yourcontent). The short link can be updated after launch to point to your content's new location.
