Hello! Welcome to the State & Center platform user manual.
Below is a listing of all the manual's pages. The "Site migration project instructions" section includes a step-by-step guide to each phase of the migration project. So when in doubt, start there.
You can use the little triangle to expand each manual section in the panel on the left side in order to browse each page. If you can't find something, please use the search bar in the upper left corner to search the manual. There's a lot of stuff here, so hopefully if you have a question, we've already covered the answer somewhere within.
If you still can't find what you're looking for, here's how to get help.
