QualityNet FileCloud is being decommissioned as part of the transition to the new Unified File Management (UFM) service. FileCloud users will automatically be migrated to UFM during this transition period. Beginning January 2, 2024, Personal Files (the most recent versions only) will be migrated from FileCloud into the new UFM system with an expected completion date of January 15, 2024. The Team Folders (the most recent versions only) will be migrated into the new UFM system starting January 15th, 2024, with an expected completion date of February 15, 2024. The Network Shares will also be migrated to UFM in February 2024.


***Call to Action***
In preparation for the transition, QualityNet FileCloud users should review all files and data. Any content that is outdated or no longer needed should be removed by January 2, 2024, so it is not pulled into the UFM system.

Additional Information
For more information, please visit the FileCloud Page on QualityNet Confluence, which includes Decommission FAQs. If you have any questions, contact us via email at ServiceCenterSOS@cms.hhs.gov. Additional communication on how to access UFM will be sent out in the coming weeks.

QualityNet Lucid Is Here!

We are excited to announce the launch of QualityNet Lucid, a toolset that enables users to plan and visualize collectively and virtually. The QualityNet Lucid Suite is live and available for you to request access. The QualityNet Lucid Suite encompasses both Lucidspark and Lucidchart.

Lucidspark:

With Lucidspark’s collaborative virtual whiteboard, your team can collect and organize ideas and then turn them into action. For example, teams can:

  • Facilitate effective meetings, planning sessions, and workshops with the right balance of structure and flexibility.
  • Ideate in real time with teammates.
  • Provide feedback, organize, and vote on ideas, and create action items.
  • Convert sticky notes into Jira issues to turn your ideas into trackable stories and tasks.

Lucidchart:

With Lucidchart’s collaborative diagramming feature, your team can create and share technical diagrams with ease. For example, teams can:

  • Import environment information directly from sources such as AWS and automatically generate diagrams from that data.
  • Co-author in real time
  • Work more efficiently with visualizing technical diagrams as a team.

For details on the Lucid user types, how to request access, and information on upcoming training, refer to the QualityNet Lucid page on Confluence.
