MSL's StudentLink app logo

November 2018 - Freshers 2018 was the usual fun and occasionally frantic ride we have all come to expect but we know how important it is for you to show your new members a warm welcome and so we enjoyed supporting you during this time. Developments and updates were still going on in the background and we're pleased to announce that the newest version of StudentLink has been released to the stores. This version will offer users an even more streamlined mobile experience for buying tickets, placing votes and generally interacting with you. Finally, for all your new team members - or old hands that need a refresher - we're running a week long series of MSL Basics web briefings. They're free to join so head over to MyMSL to reserve your spaces today.

Kind regards,

The MSL Team

It's the most exciting but gruelling time of year - it's Freshers...  

We all look forward to Freshers with a mix of excitement and trepidation and for good reason; it's probably the busiest time of year for everyone in the MSL community.  August and September saw the MSL team handling 1,950 helpdesk enquiries, 125 chat sessions and 200 calls. We also met more than 50 of you at two group training days as well as numerous client site training sessions - we love to put faces to names!  Can you share some of your interesting stats from Freshers weeks? Send us your highlights and we'll put together a pretty infographic to remind us just how how much fun we have at this time of the year.

Tell us how you're getting on with Team MSL

Now that you have time to breathe after Freshers, we'd love to know how you're getting on with your MSL System, our support channels (have you tried Chat yet?), what you think of recent developments, our Roadmap and the MSL team as a whole. If you have 5 minutes to spare, please give us your feedback using the Autumn Customer Satisfaction Survey. If you're short on time, just click the appropriate link below and if you'd like a call to discuss anything in particular then please provide your telephone number:

I'm happy with the MSL System and the MSL team's support.

I have some issues I'd like to discuss with you.
