Colleague Legacy

Colleague has many customized features written by Calvin staff. Some of these older feautres, denoted by a ## at the beginning of their menu description, are not accessible from the standard web-based Colleague interface. Colleague Legacy is a packaged SSH client used to access these older reports and processes. CIT works with individual offices to prioritize the rewriting of select older processes. Over time, the most useful legacy programs will be redeveloped.
