Risks (Amber or Red)

Risk for development resource availability at Red - https://www.projects.ed.ac.uk/unpublished/project/sas011/risks/1. Specifically, there are outstanding bugs that are showstoppers for:

  • User ID being cached in IE browser (meaning wrong user details can be displayed in some circumstances)
  • QAS lookup progress following usability changes

Next Steps

  1. Testing of fixes to functionality in DEV/TEST
  2. Document updates (FAQs, etc)
  3. Deployment to LIVE 21/11/18 - Implementation plan to be finalised; deployment checklist to be finalised
