Daily schedule for template synchronisations

To minimise disruption, the web team have designated particular times of the day to run template synchronisations (updates to the underlying code of the site).

During these times, you may be logged-out of Ektron without warning:

  • Before 9am
  • 12 - 12.15pm
  • After 5pm

Please note: rarely, template synchronisations may need to occur at other times of the day to resolve urgent problems.
