Starting March 11, a topic, category, and subcategory will be automatically assigned to your question based the information you enter. You'll get helpful suggestions for related resources too.


The March Release will also update the Ask UCPath landing page to display both open and recently closed cases.  Accessing your cases will be easier than ever!
