July 2016 Update

29 Jul 2016

Dear Stakeholders,

Another busy month has passed as we move into the final stages of the CMS Transition Project. We saw a lot of updates to the imported People profiles which are continuing to be refined with stakeholder feedback. The team are also very close to the first release of secure content. 


New Feature - Secure pages and files 

Due in the next release 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.

New Web Publishing site first release launched

Support for web publishing on UQ Standard has launched on web-publishing.uq.edu.au. This is the first release of the training and resources for UQ Drupal and it will continue to grow over the next 3 months and beyond. For legacy support the drupal.uq.edu resource will remain until no longer required.

And many many thanks to you all as I say farewell today.  I’ve been grateful for the wonderful opportunity to lead the CMS Transition project and am proud of the results of both my immediate team and the wider community. I’ve loved working across the enterprise with so many talented people and I hope to run into many of you again. All the best and THANK YOU!
