On July 10, 2019, the Office of Communications team met with website editors and owners to review the T4 launch schedule and answer questions about the internal review process. This article contains highlights reviewed during the meeting.

Content Freeze

  • Monday, July 15 at 6am: editing content through Tridion will be unavailable.
  • T3 website editing will be back online Tuesday morning; however we strongly recommend not editing content unless it is an emergency. Email for edits in the event of an emergency on Monday; otherwise we’ll send the URL out in Wednesday's (July 17) communication.
  • It will take approximately two days to publish all content into T4. We will send an email to all active website editors when the new T4 sites are ready. A list of website links are available at

  • Check our website at for a list of known bug and issues.
