Warning (!)

Wiki Cloud Migration Deadline


On January 8th, 2024 the University of Iowa Wiki hosted at https://wiki.uiowa.edu will be shut down permanently. If you would like to continue using Confluence (Wiki) in the Cloud, you will need to request licenses by filling out this Workflow form if you haven't done so already.

For more information and other options for your content, please visit the Wiki Service Change Options and FAQs page. Your content from https://wiki.uiowa.edu will be available for migration upon request for two years (until 1/8/2026).


In the wiki, when you edit a page you are automatically signed up to 'Watch' that page.  This means that anytime someone else edits that page, you will receive an email notification.

If you don't like this behavior, you will need to adjust your email settings located in your personal menu (top right) under Settings > Email.  On the email settings page, select 'Edit', de-select 'Auto-watch', and press 'Submit'.

This will disable you from 'Watching' any page you edit in the future.  However, changing this setting does not affect any current 'Watches' you have in place, and you will need to edit those by visiting your personal menu and selecting 'Watches'.  Click on 'Stop Watching' to no longer receive notifications for that Page or Space.
