What is the role of the point person / primary maintainer for each site during migration?

Point Person (Primary Maintainer) Role:  

  • Perform (or make sure someone else performs) tasks as outlined on the pre-migration checklist. Please contact Doug Bratland with questions.
  • If you plan to make any changes to your site, please do so well in advance of move day, as the migration will simply be a move of your site (as it is) to WordPress.  
  • Keep your department in the loop about what is going on and when. You will know best how to keep your department informed and what they will need to know.
  • Notify Web Services when you’ve completed the pre-migration checklist so we can put you in the queue and coordinate on timing. This includes completing the mandatory training for primary site maintainers. (More information about training and how to contact us will be made available in future communications. )
  • Be available to answer (or get the answer for) questions Web Services has.
  • Work with Web Services during the migration process to get your content into WordPress. (We are in the process of identifying what can be automated.)
  • Verify site contents in WordPress and coordinate with Web Services on when to go live.
