Office of Research Services (ORS)

Phase 2 - Information Architecture (Sitemap)

Phase 1 of 10

Discussions begun with ORS, CSC, and other research groups. Desire for filterable project list. Medium Touch Build.

Project Summary

ORS has begun a content audit of the current site. Also examining Google analytics.

Brianna Wells will be the primary contact for content. Amber Hanson to PM.

Desire for filterable table functional element to list research projects. Research to provide IT with full scope of required fields as well as template output if needed. Examples here:

[Update November 23, 2020, JS met with Amber to discuss the project requirements and timeline. Amber to submit a CSP before the 2020 Christmas break. The expected launch date is Aug 20, 2021. CWL authentication is an ideal requirement, however, if the Novell to CWL authentication project does not get completed, ORS would continue the current process of uploading the forms to their counterpart’s website, The filterable Table(PODS) component is what we would use for filtering and searching forms.

Notified Amber about the drawbacks of media security in WordPress, and also went over Qualtrics as the ideal, secure alternative for forms.]

[Update February 17, 2021, JS followed up with Amber on the sitemap and CSP. The sitemap is still in progress.]
