Web Transformation Project update: The countdown is on

Training in how to use the new website Content Management System (Squiz) is now complete. Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend this critical training.

For anyone who has completed Squiz edit+ training, your login and password details are the same as your OneID.

The focus of the project remains on checking if content has migrated successfully, making changes if required, and delivering new pages as required.

Information for Faculties
All faculties have specific plans in place for this project. Faculty staff are urged to coordinate with their faculty marketing teams for direction and advice.

Good news
Templates for the website are now being delivered earlier on 24 September to provide more time to access and update any content in these new templates.

This early delivery means work in the skeleton site must now be completed by COB Monday 21 September.

Content freeze
A content freeze will apply from COB 21 September until 24 September. The site will then open again to complete any residual updates in the new templates from 24 September.

Still need to check your content? View your pages now.

Three important considerations
1. Pages can be migrated to the new site after the launch on Monday 12 October.

2. Pages not migrated will not be deleted and will still remain live and accessible.

3. Staff are reminded the current focus of work is on public facing pages only and not those related to staff and student sites.

Information sessions
These sessions will provide staff with progress updates, answers to stakeholder questions and reminders of critical timelines.

Dates: 15 September, 29 September and 13 October
Time: 4pm
Where: T1, Building W5A
