1. IPPS-A FUNCTIONAL COURSE UPDATE. From the AG School:  The IPPS-A Administrator Course is here! Seats are currently available in ATRRS starting in July 2023.

IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE WITH DELIBERATE ATTENTION CONTROL. From the Army Resilience Directorate: Attention control is a skill that allows us to shift our focus to successfully perform a task. “Pay attention!” is a phrase we may have heard from teachers, coaches or supervisors. But how do we pay attention when we are performing? How can we ensure we pay attention to the right thing at the right time in a smooth manner? Read more at the following link. 4. IPPS-A ITEMS.      a. IPPS-A HRC Touchpoint Series - MPD/G1/S1: Unit Slotting / Position Inquiry 26 JUL 23. Webinar will take place in the HRC G1/S1 Touchpoint Channel at 1200 ET on 26 JUL 23. It will demonstrate IPPS-A functionality related to unit slotting and position inquiry. Answer questions and capture RFIs/Due Outs with intent to respond via posted consolidated listing. 5. IPPS-A QUESTIONS. (Please assist if you can.)      a. ANYONE ELSE NOT ABLE TO PULL ANYONE IN THEIR T0 UICs? As of 17JUL23, we (and a few other BNs in the BDE) are unable to access almost anyone in our T0 UICs to process PARs, depart/arrive, or submit absence requests. I noticed when I try to upload a PAR for myself, IPPS-A tries to route it to Department ID that it no longer recognized. My current theory is that IPPS-A migrated a bunch of T0 UICs to a department ID but didn't migrate the Soldiers within the UIC with it. Has anyone seen a fix or a workaround until an official patch is pushed out?      b. HOW TO RESOLVE "XML IS INVALID" ERROR WHEN COMPLETING ACTIONS. Since the update this past weekend I have continuously received an "xml is invalid" error when trying to complete actions. This disrupts work significantly as it requires a full exit of the browser and a restart of the action that I began. There is no specific case when it occurs. If there is some browser or computer setting I need to modify to fix this please let me know.      c. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO CREATE AN ETS ROSTER LIKE THE OLD EMILPO 180 DAY ROSTER? I work at a MPD and used to track the installation's ETS roster using the 180 day and 24 month roster we used to get in eMILPO. The one from eMILPO used to have the REENL_PRHBN_CD (9k Bar, 9Q DEC Statement, 9Y Retirement, etc).  Is this possible with IPPS-A?  I track Soldiers at my installation and some UICs in Kuwait. 6.
