June 2016 Update

28 Jun 2016

Dear stakeholders,

As the CMS project begins to move into it’s closing phases, the team would like to thank all the web mangers, communications and marketing staff, web editors and all others who contribute to the UQ web space. The project has seen a positive cultural change in how user friendly websites are designed and maintained, which wouldn’t have been possible without you!  Over the next few months we will be working hard to transition the remaining OCMPS and appreciate your support to wrap up the transformation project. 


New Feature

UQ Drupal will soon include Secure Pages. Due in late July, this feature will allow users to lock down content to a secure login group, such as all UQ staff, or an organisation’s staff group. Secure pages are suitable for light intranet use, but does not replace a fully featured intranet, such as Sharepoint.
