KI # Category Issue Work around Status Location
1 Web pages If there are comments to a web page in CW 2 (blog like comments activated) these comments will NOT be imported to CW3 during migration. Coordinators can manually copy the contents of comments to new pages in CW3 No action planned Pages
2 Web pages All web pages in CW2 will be imported as 'top level' pages even if they are listed under another page in CW2. NONE. The hierarchy of web pages will be lost at migration. Pages can be included as a link in another page. This does not make the hieracchy visible on the home page, but it does provide a hierarchy. No action planned Pages
3 Same names Members with the exact same name in CW 2 will have the same name in CW3. 1.) Members with the same name can to upload a picture of themselves so that other users see who it is. This is a partial workaround since sometimes CW 3 just presents the name of the member with no picture. For such situations, there is no workaround. 2.) Members with the same name can use a different nickname. No action planned Where ever a member name is shown.
4 Guardian Angel For members accounts in CW2 who have Guardian Angel mode turned on, the CW 3 migration will not necessarily migrate the correct Guardian Angel. Check, confirm or edit the Guardian Angel configuration for each individual member assigned a Guardian Angel after the final migration. No action planned Member's profile
5 Multiple email addresses allowed If your CW2 allows the same email address to be used for the same account, during migration the oldest of the members accounts with the same email address will be configured as the Guardian Angel for the other members accounts with the same email address. Correct Guardian Angel configuration after the final migration. Check and if necessary correct the “no email address” setting for members who had a duplicated email address in CW2. No action planned Member's profile
6 Events Events in CW2 that have been entered as repeating events are not migrated to CW3 Repeating events are not implemented in CW3. Each even will have to be entered individually. No action planned Events calendar
7 Footer CW2 had two footer fields. CW3 only has one. The CW2 “Footer Text” is not imported into CW 3. The CW2 “Footer Message” is imported into the CW3 footer field. If you want the contents of your CW2 “Footer Text” to show in CW3 you will have to manually enter it in CW3. No action planned Gear icon / Configure / General / Identity
8 Exchanges If the member entered a date in the future (compared to the date of the migration) for the date the service was provided, that date will not be imported. For example, if the date was incorrectly typed as January 17, 2105, that date will be ignored when migrating recorded exchanges. After the final migration, review all recorded exchanges and order by the service date in ascending order. If any exchanges do not have a date of service, they will show at the top of the list. Contact techspport@timebanks.org and I can recover the date entered by the member in CW2 and perhaps the correct date can be surmised from that information. No action planned Recorded exchanges
9 Exchanges Exchanges that are recorded in CW2 with only a top level category will be migrated with only a top level category even though CW3 does not allow new exchanges to be recorded this way. If desired, the exchange category can be edited. No action planned Recorded exchanges
10 Exchanges Some records of exchanges recorded in CW2 do not list a category. If desired, the exchange category can be edited. No action planned Recorded exchanges
11 Coordinator Roles Only members with the role “Primary Coordinator” in CW3 will be automatically assigned a coordinator role in CW3. They will be assigned the “Admin Coordinator” role. All other CW2 coordinators will not be assigned a coordinator role during migration. The new CW3 coordinator roles are different from those in CW2 which means that the Admin Coordinator will have to assign coordinator roles to other members after the final migration. No action planned Profile / Coordinator permissions
12 Default Country After migration the default country is set to “All Countries” The configuration “All Countries” is not accepted and will block saving anything in the section GEAR icon / Configure / General until a country is selected. Choose a default country in GEAR icon / Configure / General / Language and Text and save. on the to do list GEAR icon / Configure / General / Language and Text
13 Personal (web) links Personal (web) Links migrated from CW2 profiles into CW3 profile appear in the About Me as Personal Links, but have invalid URL's. The web links in each member's CW3 profile, in the section About Me / Personal Links, will need to be manually edited can be edited and corrected. on the to do list Member profile / About Me / Personal Links
14 Pages, announcements (News), and alerts Migrated pages, announcements (news) and alerts will not be visible in the CW3 sandbox. They are imported as un-published. Review all migrated pages, announcements (news) and alerts and confirm that you want to publish them to be seen in CW3 before publishing them. IMPORTANT: Check all links in all pages, news, and alerts to be sure that they work as intended in CW3. No action planned Gear icon / Manage / *
15 Service Ads Service ads (offers and requests) that are posted in CW2 with only a top level category will be migrated with only a top level category even though CW3 does not allow new offers and requests to be recorded this way. This causes a problem because they do show in the correct category. Edit the category and enter the correct one. on the to do list Service ads
