Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

    I assume this is to replace the "project page tips" in the current internal biodata.  This is more than Project tips. This is internal data entry page tips and tab navigation.  Maybe it should be renamed "project data entry tips".
