The new profiles in #404 will require some changes to the new user registration process. Anticipated changes:

  1. Remove the Title and College xprofile fields
  2. In their place, add the structured Positions fields

There may be other necessary changes, which we can keep track of in this ticket.

Actions #1

  • Assignee changed from Dominic Giglio to Boone Gorges
  • Severity changed from Normal to Low impact

Reassigning to myself. I'll take care of this in the upcoming days.

  • Status changed from New to Assigned

Done in

I opted to allow users to include only a single Position (College + Department + Title) at registration time. This greatly simplified the process technically, and it also streamlines the registration process for users. I've included a gloss that informs registrants that they can enter more positions after their accounts are active.

I'm tentatively closing this ticket. If issues arise during upcoming testing, we can either reopen this ticket or handle them separately.

Sounds like a fine solution. Thanks, Boone.
