Image of Gary Bryant, MSL Chief ExecutiveSeptember 2019 - I am delighted to be writing to you as the new Chief Executive of MSL. This is an exciting time for MSL as we build on the innate sector knowledge we have gained from over a decade. I have enjoyed meeting with some of you to discuss the wide-ranging challenges and opportunities you face and discussing how MSL is enabling you to deliver key services to your students and wider stakeholder community both today and into the future. I look forward to meeting and working with many more of you in the future; please feel free to reach out to me at any time.

Our new development blog series starts with a look at future-proofing your MSL System

Read the first blog post in this series. Look out for the next post hitting later this week!

Book now for our popular Basics and Elections training days in October  

Our late summer training series ends with MSL Basics training on 8th October and MSL Elections training on 15th October. Both sessions are ideal for new team members and those needing a refresher and are always popular. Spaces are limited so if you haven't booked already, visit MyMSL for more details and to access the bookings forms. 

Your MSL Knowledge Base is always full of help and advice - today's focus is on Freshers!

To help you and your team with all the tasks on the run up to and during Freshers, we have a great series of Freshers' prep videos on Knowledge Base - use them as a reminder or as part of new starter training. Watch the videos here.

An important topic that comes up regularly at this time of year is managing the merge of new student accounts with their guest accounts. This Pending Data has its own section on the Knowledge Base which includes examples and different actions you can take to resolve these records. Read the support page here

20th November 2019 - Instant access to everything, at any time, no matter what it is – that’s the mantra by which your student members live; from travel information to fast food, gig tickets to current affairs. Your website is a hub of information and opportunities to participate that many students rely upon to support their university and social lives - and so they expect that same feeling of immediacy from your site as they get from ASOS and Amazon.
