Weekly Web Updates – September 9, 2019

We have launched a new site for undergraduate admissions. This is the first part of the undergraduate college website to go live in our new Drupal 8 system.

Up until 2010, GO had a feature where we sent a notification email each night to shortcut admins to let them know if any of their GO codes weren’t working. We’ve brought this feature back, but made it a weekly instead of a nightly email. If you’d like to receive this message, you can opt-in by clicking the Notify link in the GO administration interface and setting your preference.
