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).


On Monday, November 25th, the wiki had a scheduled maintenance window from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.  The work was started at 7 a.m. and finished shortly before 8 a.m., allowing access to all users.

What changed?

  • Server updates and patches to ensure wiki reliability
  • Updates to a couple of macros: Space group management and Numbered Headings
  • Wiki Stats pages have moved to the Help space (it may take a minute to load)
  • New functionality: the Decision Blueprint

Decision Blueprint

The Decision Blueprint is another blueprint available for wiki users, supplementing the 'Meeting Notes' and 'File List' blueprints.  Blueprints can be seen when pressing the Create button to add a new page or blogpost.  Blueprints are sort of like templates that allow powerful functionality for routine items without having to set it up every time.

The Decision blueprint enables teams or groups to track what decisions are being made, who is involved, the status of the decision, and the outcome. All decisions are automatically added to the Decision Register.

For an example see the Decision Register in the Demo Space.
