Initial framework for this is here:

The `include_groupblog_step` logic still needs to be written. See #10987.

Depending on implementation, the confirmation page #11204 might involve reintroducing one of the eliminated steps.

#4 Updated by Sonja Leix 4 months ago

As discussed during the monthly meeting, if possible, we should move the 'Group Site' step after Photo to not interrupt all settings that belong to the group creation process, resulting in:
1. Details, 2. Settings, 3. Photo, 4. Group Site

#5 Updated by Boone Gorges 4 months ago

  • Subject changed from Eliminate steps from group creation process to Group creation mods for 1.15
  • Parent task set to #10987

To do:

- Change position of Photo step
- Implement metadata collection (done)
- Detect that we're coming from Group + Site click on the portal (via URL param) and use that info to toggle Add Site tab
- Rename groupblog tab to Add Site
- Add support for Site Template and License to Add Site panel
- Replace "role" matrix with yes/no toggle on Add Site panel
- Any other misc changes to Add Site panel as per designs/wireframes

  • Status changed from New to Resolved

I believe this is mostly done. We can reopen if we find that large bits have been missed.

#7 Updated by Boone Gorges 3 months ago

Following up on today's dev call, I've made a change so that the metadata fields on the Add Site step of group creation are now pre-filled with the corresponding values for the group.
