I had the opposite of White Dragon's issue.
I have designed and implemented a method to put information for all the students applying for a certain grad program on a secure web platform that the panel can access, vs the old way of printing every last thing and sending around files, which violates FERPA rules in the US.
I get the list in mid-December, work at top speed to get the files downloaded from the document site, into individual files, then create the individual pages and upload the files to the secure server. 46 students. Completely done other than weekly updates for new documents. Right? Oh, and during this time, the university was closed for 12 days.
Colleague checks and there are 70 more applicants. All of the sudden, the selection panel wants the files available right.then. I am already busy with other priority projects, plus my normal weekly workload, so I am not happy.
I only have 31 more to upload out of the new batch and then the weekly updates. I had several quitting my job fantasies going through my head this week.
