Totally revamped private messages with conversational styling - which was a community idea submitted by an ACE?  A refresh for the Excellence Awards and ACE Program? In one release? Yep - keep on reading to check out all the cool stuff we've done for YOU over the last few weeks. 

 

New Private Message Layout

Blog Landing Page Update

In our July release, we made several improvements to the blog article page. I'm excited to announce Phase 2 of this project - a new and improved blog landing page. Thanks to the Community Content team (looking at you @NeilR @MaddieJ @CristonS @SusanCS) and @joannallyson for their amazing ideas and collaboration on this project. Check out some the new features below: 

 

All Blogs View - a consolidated feed of all the blog articles across all 4 of our blogs. The featured area is curated by our content team, and you can see the rest of the articles (in order by date, starting with newest) in the Latest feed below.

Single Blow View - You can then click into a specific blog itself to see a list of only those articles, along with the right rail with labels and other helpful information relevant to that specific blog.

Subscribe Button - Check out the nifty new Subscribe button that allows you to subscribe to specific blogs, or all blogs with one quick click. You can easily unsubscribe as well - though we doubt you'll do that. 😉

ACE Program Updates 

The ACE Program space also got a revamp. We've added a tabbed informational view here, and automated some of the metadata that's shared here. This is a pre-cursor to some awesome profile improvements we have on the roadmap - stay tuned! In addition, we've added an Emeritus tab to showcase our Emeritus ACES, and updated all of the requirements and qualifications for this program. Kudos to our fearless ACE Leader @TuvyL and all of our current and legacy ACES.
