‘Ohana Website Report


  • Future: one plan is to gradually relegate the “Groups” section of the site so that these function only as backend portals for stakeholders. We don’t think the Groups page(s) are very user friendly or intuitive. Encouraging stakeholders to link to documents from their unit pages (e.g. Staff Council)
  • Future: A few units are working on improving posted Policies across all our sites; current plan is to receive word from OFIE with a current list and format; will be working to keep that list current and consistent across Main site, Ohana and near-future Academic Affairs page
  • Future: Would like to improve visibility of Forms listed on Ohana; there are differences in opinion on whether we should list forms by Department or by Function. Problem occurs when functions are performed by units that are not naturally expected to perform these roles but are done that way by virtue of legacy roles (e.g., biz cards once designed by CELTT; updating directory info via AUX SVC); ideas discussed to make a script that might resort form links between Department or Function roles.
  • Future: “Department” link is not clear. Working on ideas on how to list the many different units / departments / committees / taskforces etc that serve roles on campus. Current idea is to list this tab “Groups” (once we hide the current group role) and then list all the above unit categories under this main header. “Group” title doesn’t carry any functional academic meaning on our campus so it may be the best general title to use.
