Data, like submitted reservations and project requests are being migrated back into the site and we can assure you that no data has been lost. Data is being restored, starting with the most recent and as it is being added to the new search server, it will become available on the iLab site. Some items like billing invoices may not be visible on the site at this moment and during this time, users may experience some general slowness when using the site.
