Upgrading Drupal 6 to Drupal 7



UA Web Branding aka UA Digital: External Relations has delivered annotated PSDs for College and Department level sites to the group. The Digital Assets working group has begun creating reusable assets based on the PSDs. The UX and Implementation working groups have created a survey to gather information on audiences and high-level use cases for all UA websites. The survey is currently being tested by members of the UA Digital group and will be distributed broadly across campus in January.
