What’s happening with the WCMS?
Pausing WCMS 3 migrations between academic terms
The WCMS team will begin to implement WCMS 3 migration blackout periods in between terms to allow for adequate onboarding and offboarding of new WCMS co-op staff.
The first blackout period will take place between Monday, April 18 and Monday, May 9, 2022.
While websites will not be migrated to WCMS 3 during the blackout period, you may still:
- Request a new WCMS 3 website to be built within your area/faculty
- Arrange training for area/faculty co-op staff during WCMS co-op onboarding period
