For those who missed the announcement in Argonne Today last week, the lab has rolled out a new platform for accessing internal applications called “Dash”. The goal for this is to provide a one-stop solution for internal lab applications (including Dayforce) without requiring the VPN, and better protect the lab from possibly infected mobile and user-owned devices. Included below are links to the announcement and information page. Those who appreciate irony will note that you must be on an internal network or VPN to read these links.

I’ll also note that I have not yet been able to use Dash to access Dayforce from my Android devices, despite the claims of support. I’ll send an update if I ever figure it out. I have not yet tested iOS. MacOS worked just fine.
If you currently access Dayforce directly via the unsupported-provided-as-a-convenience link for those with Silverlight installed, you can continue to do so with no changes. Likewise, if you connect to rdp.mcs.anl.gov (Windows Terminal Service) to access Dayforce, that will continue to work as well.
