University of Waterloo website search function updates - May 5

Monday, April 29, 2019
Update: This temporary search tool does not support Internet Explorer. Please use Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge as an alternative browser. 

What is happening? The University of Waterloo website search function will be temporarily replaced with a simplified, interim search tool.  

Why is this happening? IST is working on implementing an updated website search tool, scheduled to go live in July 2019. However, the license for the current search tool expires on Monday, May 6 at 3:00 a.m. An interim solution is required to ensure this functionality remains available until the updated solution is in place.

When is this happening? The interim search tool will be deployed on Sunday, May 5 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. 

What are the changes? 
  • The interim search will be a central 'Search' page.
    • On WCMS sites when a user clicks on the magnifying glass search icon, they will be re-directed to a central search page. 
  • Searches will display results from all uwaterloo.ca sites, it will not be possible to limit results to a specific uwaterloo.ca site.
  • Javascript will need to be enabled on the user's browser in order for the search function to work. 

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk@uwaterloo.ca or ext. 44357.
