Everyone with Sierra Encore/Duet training is requested to do as much testing as possible between October 9, 2017 and October 20, 2017.
We encourage people to work in pairs doing testing. It helps with learning, figuring out new processes, and confirming that an issue really is an issue.
Examples of kinds of problems to look for:
A Discovery Frequently Asked Questions page has been posted on the wiki under the Discovery Working Group and the Discovery Discussion Group documents areas: https://ilsimp.wiki.flvc.org/wiki/index.php/Discovery_FAQ
Members of Working Groups should report bugs and issues through the WG Google doc. If you work with a WG member and can get them to confirm your issue, please report that through the WG Google doc as well.
Members of library staff who are not on a Working Group can report issues through a Working Group member.

If you find something that you think will be of interest to everyone, you can report it via email to Nelly and Rich. (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com) We have a Trello board at https://trello.com/b/rVwchJCU and we will post local issues and questions there too.
Here are extract dates for each record type, so you’re not looking for records that were created after the extract: https://ilsimp.wiki.flvc.org/wiki/index.php/What_extracts_were_sent_to_Innovative_and_to_BSLW_document
Create LIsts is a great tool to help isolate records. Please be sure to follow the guidelines for its use, Best practices and retention policies for Sierra Review Files, Saved Searches/Sorts/Lists/Exports, and Web Management Reports (at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jhqmOgfbJ1jKgztvZOglOAPFGGhKIxwH4smCfdvoWcw/edit ) created by the Systems Working Group.
A test proxy server at testdb03.linccweb.org should be used in place of db03.linccweb.org. Broward patrons should log in via the "Sign-in with your campus SSO" left side. FAU patrons seeking access to electronic resources will log in through the right side, "Sign in with your library account".
The IP address of the test proxy server is not registered with our vendors, so when you get to the resource you will still get a password challenge. If you make it there without putting in your own password then SSO is working.

Here are UCL test teams for Oct 9 - Oct 20 testing. The name in bold will be the reporter to file issue reports with the Working Groups.
