Then tell us how we did by taking this 5-10 minute survey.

Involve Your IT Department

STAR is very browser specific and works optimally with I.E. 8.  Share this "must know" information with your IT Department to ensure that your browser settings are compatible for use with STAR.  We highly recommend that these settings be established in your organization's IT security settings.

Keep Informed of Known System Bugs and Projected Dates for Resolution

If you've encountered a bug in STAR, it is likely that other users have also encountered the same issue.  Keep informed about known issues in STAR and be sure to share with us other issues that you're encountering so that we can get those issues resolved.  Touch base periodically on projected resolution dates for known issues.
