Updates to JasperNet Account Self-Help Tool (start.manhattan.edu) Coming Soon


Updates to the college's JasperNet Account self-help tool: start.manhattan.edu will be released this week.

The 24/7 start.manhattan account tool allows one to activate a new account, reactivate an old account, and manage account access credentials.

The update better aligns the design with the college's current online web presence. As part of the update, we have also committed to following the practice of accessible web design to insure that the web pages are usable by everyone.

Besides the visual facelift, the tool update includes:
  • a front-page reorganization, with a more prominent Account Management section for existing users to provide or update an account recovery email address and change password, as needed
  • more and better confirmation emails at numerous steps of the account activation and management process, with emphasis on new user onboarding
  • a new Captcha solution, which replaces the challenge of deciphering characters or audio with a simple action to be taken by the person using the site. This functions to ensure that internet users filling out forms are indeed humans, thwarting the amount of spam produced by bots 

We encourage you to take a look at the new tool, and perhaps take the opportunity to update and/or provide a recovery (personal) email address for your account.  This will allow you to recover your account in the future without the involvement of ITS.  We also encourage you to change your password.

Additional workflow enhancements to streamline the employee onboarding process will be added in the coming weeks.

Planned Network Maintenance Leo Hall 8/17 at 8am

ITS will be conducting planned network maintenance on Friday, August 17th from 8am-10am, which will cause some localized network disruptions. 

In order to replace some old and outdated equipment, ITS will be conducting some network maintenance in Leo Hall 3rd floor. These upgrades will cause disruption to both the wired and wireless networks on the 3rd floor of Leo Hall. This maintenance will not affect the rest of the building nor will it affect the rest of campus.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you have any questions, please reach out to ITS at 718-862-7973 or e-mail us at its@manhattan.edu.
