Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why when I request event funding from UGSS am I refused because I am not a member of GITCA when in fact my UG is a member?
A: You must make sure that the affiliation to GITCA check-box is checked in the profile of the UG on UGSS. This can be done by editing the profile of the UG(s) associated with a UG Leader via the My DashBoard tab.
Q: When will the next UG kits be available?
A: No UG kits delivered via UGSS are planned for the immediate future. Microsoft subsidiaries may provide UG kits at their option. For example, the Microsoft US subsidiary supplies UG kits on a quarterly basis. GITCA does not provide UG kits.
Q: How can I find out about how to use UGSS?
A: The following link will help describe how to use UGSS - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/how-to-use-user-group-support-services.aspx.
Q: How come I receive communications from GITCA but not from UGSS?
A: GITCA and UGSS are two totally different independent organizations with two different databases of members. GITCA is associated with UGSS through the requests for event funding as mentioned above. You must join UGSS in order to receive event funding and also be a member of GITCA. It is only a requirement to be a member of both for the purposes of event funding. All other services/benefits/content is separate.
