from MyMadison than it did in J-Ess. How do I make it look like it did in J-Ess?
If you would like the printed version of your paycheck to look like it did when printing
from J-Ess, you must identify the frame to print. This process is unique to the browser

appropriately on one page; you may adjust this to fit your personal
preference

Class Schedule Download
1. What is the functionality that has been added?
Functionality has been added to allow users to download both their class schedule and
the academic calendar as ICS files. This calendar file can then be imported into the
[email protected] calendar or another calendar of choice. This can be found on the Weekly
Calendar pagelet on the ‘Academics’ and ‘Student’ tabs. This was added on 01/20/12.
2. How do I import my downloaded class schedule into my [email protected] calendar?
You need to first setup your [email protected] account in the Microsoft Outlook client which
allows an ICS import. Once that setup is complete, you can then import the ICS file into
your [email protected] calendar.
For more information, please visit http://help.outlook.com/enus/140/ms.exch.ecp.useoutlookanywhere.aspx , and review the “Connect Outlook to
This Account” section, as well as http://help.outlook.com/en-us/140/gg603692.aspx,
and review the “Import the saved ICS file into Outlook” section.
3. What happens if I change my class schedule and I have already downloaded and imported it into
another application (such as my [email protected] calendar)?
You will need to re-download your schedule and import it again. You may also need to
manually remove any previously imported appointments that are no longer applicable
or that you no longer want in your calendar.
To minimize the amount of manual work, a recommendation is to wait until your
schedule is finalized (i.e. after the add/drop deadline) before importing.
4. Can JMU graduate, doctoral, and outreach CE students download these ICS calendars?
Yes. The new functionality is available on the Weekly Calendar pagelet on the ‘Student’
tab.

http://www.jmu.edu/computing/support/software/ for more information.

application in another tab. Please visit
http://isapps.jmu.edu/tutorials/browser/index.asp for more information.
3. Why does MyMadison seem to timeout suddenly and automatically sign me out?
Certain functions within MyMadison utilize popup windows, including the timeout
warning that allows you to extend your session and prevent the automatic sign out. If
you experience this issue or other issues with functionality, please disable any popup
blocking utilities you are using, or allow mymadison.jmu.edu to use popups.
Additional functionality that may experience issues with popup blockers include the
UDAP Contract, Buy My Books, Grid download, and My Student Bill – QuikBILL.

information.
