What is happening? As part of a configuration error, a number of staff, faculty and students have received an email inviting them to complete their registration for the WatIAM system. This email should not have been sent and all users can disregard. The email would look similar to the example below:

When did this happen? The emails were sent on Wednesday, April 12.
