DMPTool maintenance and a roadmap

First things first, we want to inform you about upcoming maintenance. The DMPTool will be unavailable on Wednesday Feb 3, 2016 5:00 – 6:00pm (PDT) while we migrate the database to AWS. The application will also be moving to the cloud so you can expect another maintenance message in the near future. We apologize for the inconvenience.

In other news, we’re excited to share the following roadmap for future development. Thanks to all of your suggestions about how to improve the DMPTool, we’ve identified and prioritized some feature enhancements to meet evolving data management planning needs:

  • API work for integration projects with other data management systems, to extract guidance and customizations, and to generate additional user statistics
  • Formatting tools for template creation and customization views
  • Search function for lists of templates, customizations, and partner institutions
  • Function for customizing auto-generated email messages (e.g., when a user submits a plan for review)

Migrations and bug fixes are already underway. We’ll provide a timeframe for the roadmap in the coming months as we clear the backlog and move on to enhancements. You can also track our progress and help shape future plans by submitting feedback through our GitHub Issue Tracker.
