Portal Tips Portal Tips

Welcome to the new UMA Portal.  Here are some tips to get you started:

-Log in using your UMA email/ Mainestreet/ Blackboard ID & Password. Do NOT type the "@maine.edu" as part of your ID.

-Portal link is my.uma.edu Easy to remember - UMA website is uma.edu and just add my. in front of uma.edu

-If at any time you want to get back to the LaunchPad, deep links, and quick links, just click the Home button, the picture of the house, or the UMA logo and it should bring you back to the Portal main page and should display the LaunchPad, etc.

-The LaunchPad icons take you directly into the UMS supported systems, GMail, MaineStreet, BlackBoard.  (Note that until Feb 27, GMail may or may not ask you to log in.  After Feb 27, GMail should auto log you in)

-The MaineStreet deep links take you directly into MaineStreet and you do not need to know how to click your way in.

-The UMA Quick links are what we thought you would want easy access to.  If we forgot something, email umaportal@maine.edu and we will attempt to create additional quick links. 

-All deep links for MaineStreet show for everyone.  As we get further into development, we can limit what you see based on groups.  Students and Faculty use the same basic deep links.  Staff see many deep links and only the ones you have permission in MaineStreet will work for you.  You will get an error if you click a deep link you do not have permission for. 

-Because you are logged in to several different systems while in the portal, please make sure you click Sign Out and make sure you close your browser after signing out

-A portal is always being developed and changed.  If there is something you would like or something does not work quite right, email umaportal@maine.edu and we will see what we can do to make the portal better
