S1NET Message Summary - 5 May 23

1. WHY ARE THE LINKS IN S1NET MESSAGES VERY LONG NOW?  You may have noticed that the links in the S1NET Messages are now very long, similar to Teams links. The link also includes your name. A number of members have expressed concern. The new longer links are not the actual links, although they take you to the same place, they are a result of cyber security measures implemented by Microsoft Defender for Office as part of the “Plus” portion of the M365 E3 Plus licenses that the Army has in place. And, your name is only in the link for the message that comes to you. Although the very long links are unsightly, there is no reason for concern.  If you forward the email to someone else, your name will not transfer with the message. All S1NET Messages are posted at the following link on S1NET, and contain the actual links. 2. CORRECTED COPY: MERITORIOUS UNIT CITATION (MUC) ORDER FOR APPROVED UNITS INVOLVED IN AFGHANISTAN RETROGRADE OPERATIONS.

I was well versed in datastore but the OBIEE query system in IPPS-A doesn't seem to be much help. I'm looking for something that will tell me who an award is currently with and status dates.      b.
