Following a brief period of site-structure maintenance, the system is again open to all users. We ask that you resume content migration efforts. As a reminder, all public-site content must be entered in the system no later than close of business on September 4. Live beta testing will begin on September 10.
Additionally, keep in mind that the private site project is now running concurrently with the public site, and gathering and organizing your private-site content will also take some time.
We would like to remind all users that additional training is being scheduled to accommodate this revised schedule. Upcoming sessions include:
Please register in advance to ensure adequate classroom space.
We thank all users for their continued support of the website project. If you have any questions or need additional guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to the Web Technologies staff at 446.7070 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Four additional training workshops are now available for staff assigned to migrate content in preparation for the new web site.
In order to accommodate our revised schedule, we ask that users continue their migration efforts. All content must be entered in the system no later than close of business on September 4, 2012. We will subsequently begin the live-testing phase in preparation for our November site launch.
To support this new schedule and your associated content migration efforts, we have scheduled additional training dates. Dates and times scheduled for the next two weeks are as follows:
Please register in advance to ensure adequate classroom space.
We would like to acknowledge several departments who have made significant progress in their content migration efforts thus far.
- School of Health Professions
- Materials Management
- Internal Medicine
- The Leroy T. Canoles Jr. Cancer Research Center
We thank all users for their continued support of the website project. If you have any questions, please contact Web Technologies at 446.7070 or email email@example.com for assistance.
The faculty/staff directory is still in progress and is not yet ready for use. This directory is being created primarily in the back-end of the system. Continue reading
Though the website launch is delayed, we ask that you continue on in your content development and migration efforts. We will be completing our site structure adjustments and be opening the content management system to content editors again next week.
Keep in mind that the private site schedule is now on track with that of the public site, significantly increasing the scope of our project.
Our intent is to keep momentum going, as we anticipate several review cycles and prefer that the content be in the system as soon as possible so that we can initiate this process.
Additionally, we plan to use our extra time to more thoroughly align our priorities and present follow-on training to assist users in their migration effort efforts.
We thank you for your ongoing content migration efforts and we appreciate your participation as well as your ongoing patience with the project. If you have any questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 446.7070.
We will be holding additional training sessions through the beginning of November in an effort to best leverage the additional time we now have due to the public site launch delay.
We plan to continue holding the previous training sessions (Using Site Manager, Formatting Content, Writing for the Web, Content Migration Workshop).
Additionally, we will introduce several new sessions to accommodate those users who are further along in the migration process. The new trainings will also address content requirements and system functions associated with the private site, which is now set to launch concurrently with the public site.
We will announce the new schedule for training within the next week. In the meantime, we ask that you continue with your ongoing content migration efforts when the site becomes available to users again next week.
If you have any questions, please direct them to email@example.com or call 446.7070.
For consistency and space-saving purposes within our navigation, we ask that users refrain from use of terms such as “Office of,” “Department of,” or “Division of.”
For example, the Office of Technology Transfer should be listed in the site structure simply as, “Technology Transfer.”
In general, we ask that you be cognizant of the way in which you name all sections within Site Manager, as each of these sections may ultimately become a link within the navigation. Keep in mind your audience, and how they will expect to move through the site and find information.
We ask that you quickly review your section names to ensure they are concise; yet, easy for your audience to understand.
We appreciate your assistance. If you have any questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 446.7070.
Due to the large volume of users entering content simultaneously within Site Manager, we will be periodically locking down the system over the next few months for site structure review and maintenance. This will ensure that the site structure is properly aligned as we progress with content migration. Continue reading
Terminal Four is currently conducting maintenance on Site Manager. We ask that everyone take a break from using the system today. Please make sure anything that you are working on is saved before you log out.
We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please direct them to email@example.com or call 446.7070.
Just a reminder that the IP address to access Site Manager is:
You can copy and paste this into your address bar exactly as you see it (do not add a “www”).
Also, remember that the most compatible web browser for Site Manager is Firefox (as opposed to Internet Explorer, Safari or Chrome).
If you have questions or are experiencing access issues, please contact Web Technologies at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 757.446.7070.
As you are aware, we are in the midst of an ongoing, campus-wide redesign project to create a web presence that best serves the needs of our diverse audiences. We also are in the midst of the LCME reaccreditation process. We will be submitting many documents to the LCME reviewers (including URLs to find content on our website) in July. During this vital review process, we want to be sure that required information is available at the links we reported. Continue reading
