Working with BlackBoard (owner of Xythos), the project team has developed a separate "webfile" export tool that scans iSpace and selects all files linked to the UTMB web site. This utility will be used to migrate those linked files into a new SharePoint library for all UTMB webfiles.
This migration will happen in mid-September, 2019, about the same time as departmental data migrations begin in earnest. Migrating all of UTMB's webfiles should only take a day or two, and permissions will be retained. In the new SharePoint webfiles library, each department will only see and access the same webfiles they see and access in iSpace today.
Shortly after the webfiles migration has been completed, the team will make a report available to departments that details the information needed to update the old iSpace hyperlink to the new SharePoint hyperlink. Web editors and authors should begin that work (described in the next question) as soon as possible.
Note: A separate copy of the webfiles will be automatically migrated during the departmental migration; this is unavoidable. Those files should be deleted from your SharePoint department folder in order to prevent confusion.
