Important: Upcoming Changes to YSI Website

Dear Organizers and Coordinators,

As many of you know, we have built a new website for YSI. It is a more streamlined and cost-effective version of our existing site. Many of you gave input along the way, and we are excited to take it live.

The transition, however, will present a few challenges over the next few weeks. We appreciate your patience and support while we work to make it as smooth as possible.

Here’s what to expect:

  1. Most data (projects, budgets, profiles, recordings, etc) will be transferred to the new site automatically. But any working papers that you may have linked to your profile, as well as the discussion sections inside your working group pages will disappear.

  2. Starting 10 November, the issues we recently faced with our zoom integration are likely to recur on the existing site. If you hope to run a webinar between now and 30 November, please contact us so we can help you with an alternative setup.

  3. Projects added to the existing site between 20-30 November will not be transferred over to the new site. Please do not create any new projects in this time window. You can email us for preliminary approval on a budget if you need.

  4. On 28 and 29 November, the YSI site will be down. If you navigate to the page, you will see a maintenance screen. Please plan not to use the site on these two days.

  5. On 30 November, the new site will go live. 🎉

  6. During the first 2 weeks of December, we will have extra availability to support you in your use of the new website. If any of your project data did not carry over properly, we’ll work with you to address it.

If you have concerns, feel free to contact me directly at [email protected] and I will work with you to find solutions. Many thanks for your support and understanding along the way.

We look forward to seeing you on the new site!
