Changes coming to ShopUW+ Essentials
In the coming weeks, ShopUW+ Essentials will be updated to incorporate updates on Phase 2 business functions that are being developed. This will result in some website navigation and cosmetic changes. The first change we made is placement of the ShopUW+ login in two new locations – above the menu bar (top right corner) and a button above the Quick Links section. Watch for more information.
