Personify – Update
As you are aware, there have been some data and workflow issues with MyLegion as we have migrated to Personify. We wanted to update you on the project, the current issues and how we are addressing them.
Below are the currently known issues along with an estimated time for completion, if known. We will continue to update information about known issues and estimated timelines for completion as they become available. These items and their expected completion dates will be updated this week. We are working diligently to resolve each item based upon the severity and business impact. We appreciate your patience as we move forward.
Nearly 100 million records were moved from the old mainframe-based system to Personify. With a move of this size, we expected issues to arise. To address those issues, the team sets priorities based upon the impact to workflow. Many of the issues we have experienced did not appear during testing which began in late August. Since April 1 (six days including a holiday and weekend), we have processed 1,467 membership and other registrations (baseball), and 424 online transmittals comprised of 1,334 TAL/SAL memberships. Considering the scope of this project and the numbers shown in the first six days, the overall project has been successful. Again, we knew there would be problems and are working as quickly as we can to get all items resolved.
The Known Issues list will be located here. (https://mylegion.org/PersonifyEbusiness/Resources/Help/Known-Issues)

95% and 100% Target Date
To ensure all departments have the ability to make the upcoming target dates, we are moving the 95% and 100% target dates. The 95% target date will now be on May 12, 2021 and the 100% target date will be June 9, 2021. However, with that being said, there are a few notable items that need to be addressed.
95% Target Date is May 12, 2021
100% Target Date is June 9, 2021
Delegate Strength Date is July 30, 2021
Race to the Top certification forms are due to IA & Membership Division by April 30, 2021. The end date for this award is still March 31, 2021. Membership reports are scheduled to be back on line mid-next week and departments can then verify the information, fill out the certification form, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax it to 317.630.1413 or mail it to P.O. Box 1055, Attn: IA & Membership Division, Indianapolis, IN 46206.
Extract for 2022 Membership Cards
This will take place April 16, 2021. Although the 95% Target Date has been extended, please transmit everything the post and department has on hand prior to this extract to ensure those members cards are correct and in place for all members. Keep in mind that if there are issues transmitting through the myLegion portal, we are still processing membership received through the mail. Those transmittals can still be sent to the scanner room for fulfillment. For the good of the member, it is important to transmit all renewals before the April 16th extract date. We want to maximize the number of members who will receive their 2022 Membership Card with the initial run of cards.
All Membership Awards
All membership awards due dates will stay as listed in the National Membership Awards Points Manual except for the Department Commander of the Year Award. This award may now qualify by the June 9th 100% target date. All others remain the same.
