Visit the Wayback Machine to see it. Once there, type in a date before Oct. 27, 2014 and pharmacy.uiowa.edu.
You can sign in and use this as your sandbox to your heart's content without messing anything up on the regular site.
We are back to normal operation. The new site is nearly same to update as the old site.
There is a guide for web publishers, which describes how to do update the site.
You may also view Adam’s web publisher training, which the Pharmacy IT Help Desk recorded for us. (When possible, we will add times to this so you know when certain topics are covered. The long-term plan is to improve the training guide with brief web snippets.)
If you still have problems, concerns, or snags, please email email@example.com.
Feel free to browse around your assigned content area. If it's a division, poke around the division.
Also, we assigned each page an owner (called "author" in Drupal).
To see which pages you've been assigned so far:
If you don't agree with a page assignment, please email the pharmacy webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also email such comments to the pharmacy webmaster.
Greg Schwartz and David Thole will be collecting these types of comments specifically, so please put in the subject line: "Directory", and then the rest of the subject line.
The prior directory is fed into our website from the main UI Phonebook.
The new directory comes from up to three sources depending on the person: 1) Employee Self Service, 2) an identity management system for the college, and 3) APR.
Web publishers and even webmasters no longer have the ability to edit people in the new directory.
When we all met as a group in 2013 we were looking at a live mockup of the redesigned site. After that, the webmasters in this college (Barb, Greg, Anne & I) worked with our web developers to continue refining the site vision.
In November (2013), we got feedback initially from web publishers, and department and division heads. Earlier this year, a few of you served as web testers, trying to poke holes in the web developers' work to make it better. (Thank you!) This summer, an External Relations student (Nick) moved a lot of content into the new site from the old site. David Thole and Greg Schwartz put a new directory system in place on the new site, so that faculty can make updates to their profile pages by updating their APR. Pharmacy webmasters met with area content experts again -- people in charge of the new 5 main menu areas -- to perfect those areas once they were almost ready. Then Greg, Barb, and Viki from ITS met with department and division heads again very close to launch to make sure their areas were ready to go.
