Updates and follow up[edit | edit source]

  • Lise - Working on how directors can use the Wiki.  Use redirect on flyers.  See Wiki article on redirects:  https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Help:Redirects
  • Is there a way to assign all the conference articles into a master category that contains all Syllabi content? ( a hierarchy within categories).  This needs to be done manually (Syllabi from conferences). Pass on to Support Team.
  • References like currently would preferrably be better if phrased "as of a certain date." This should be added to style guide. Take to Community Council.  Add instruction for maintenance to look for phrases such as today. now, new.
