Module Used: Administration
As a new ARMS customer and at the start of each Academic Year, the Department will be responsible for setting up the dates of the University's academic year (i.e Start/End Dates, Exam Periods, Vacation Periods).
These dates will drive compliance rules for team events and activities, as well as create Years & Terms with which to associate rosters.
