  1. July 28, 2016WCMS feature request freeze & backlog clean up

    What is happening? All feature requests/tickets in the WCMS development queue will be reviewed. Those that are older than one year, do not align with the remaining 2016 development priorities, or are not considered “business critical” will be resolved.

    Moving forward, we ask that all new feature requests be held until otherwise notified.

  2. Aug. 18, 2016SharePoint maintenance - August 20 (extended down time)

    What is happening? As part of the normal maintenance cycle, IST staff will be upgrading the current SharePoint infrastructure. Our goal is to improve the robustness and performance of the storage utilized by SharePoint. There will be no changes to the SharePoint software or SharePoint user interface. The upgrade requires the transfer of a large amount of data, and that transfer will take a minimum of 6 hours to complete. Once the data transfer is complete, we will need to test the new environment and make some configuration changes.

  3. Aug. 15, 2016WCMS upgrade to 1.13 – August 16 and August 22/23

    What is happening? Non-responsive (legacy) WCMS sites are being upgraded to version 1.13.

    Why is this happening? This is the final feature release for the non-responsive branch of the WCMS.
