Introduction to Meeting

Welcome to the group, and we appreciate the participation. Our goal for these monthly group meetings is to provide training, resources, information and guidance so that each department will have all the support to maintain and enhance their websites. We encourage everyone to attend as many meetings as possible. 

WCUG Updates

Our Brainstorming meeting last month provided the following results:

  • Most were interested in Cascade and Accessibility specific training sessions
  • We moved the SAIT Cascade Online Training Materials to be easier to locate and use.
  • Most were interested in hiring students that SAIT would train to help you with web needs.
  • There was interest in having video instruction, and we will accommodate that down the road.


Nina sent out the link to the web form that IT is looking at to purchase. We had a discussion regarding what you are using forms for, what your concerns are about Google forms, and what you liked about MACH forms.

Google Forms:

  • Limited functionality
  • No confidentiality
  • Doesn't send confirmation, have to do it manually
  • Cannot sort or manipulate data
  • Students cannot speak to each other
  • Not easy, too long
  • Hard to tell who submitted if they didn't enter full name

MACH Forms:

  • Hosted On Site to keep confidential
  • Full Access
  • SAIT can customize
  • Spreadsheet options?
  • Email or printable form?
  • Similar process as Google Forms
  • Can we export to excel? (still testing)
  • More functionality to explore
  • Hao demonstrated how to filter data
  • All agreed to move forward with testing MACH
