Step 3a: From the “Create Your New Digication ePortfolio” page, review the content before you upgrade. You will see a list of pages that will be upgraded. If there are unpublished pages (Drafts), they will be noted in the list. You will also be given a choice to “Use Draft Version” to upgrade using all the pages of your classic ePortfolio including the unpublished (draft) pages or “Copy Published Only,” using only the published pages of your classic ePortfolio. If there are no unpublished (draft) pages, you will only see the “Upgrade” button option. Click either the “Use Draft Version, Copy Published Only or Upgrade” buttons to upgrade your classic ePortoflio to the new interface. (See images 3 and 4)
