Watch for More
FOR CHAPTER LEADERS:
If your chapter had a "visit site” button with a link to an external site from
the old portal, your Landing Page (homepage) on the new portal has the same link
to your external site. In addition to the Landing Page each chapter can create
additional "Group Pages” on the new portal.
If you would like to migrate your external site in
stages, you would be able to create the replacement pages and still keep your
Landing Page link to the external site until you are comfortable that all of
your information has been migrated correctly.
