Create profile pages on ASDWA.org that are linked to Role Types. A registered user would land on this page after log-in. The profile page would serve as a nexus of information available to that Role Type. For example, a user with a "slashy" Role Type [AWOP/SDWIS/UAG] would see information from all three Community sections of the site on their profile page. The idea is to eliminate the need for a user with complex site permissions to jump around the site to get all of the important information available to them.4 votes
Currently evaluating options for the layout of these pages.
A request was made to make older ASDWA surveys available to the members in a searchable format. This would be a significant administrative undertaking. There is an alternative "Idea" in the forum for Using the ASDWA Discussion Forums for Member Surveys in the future. This would make future surveys searchable.3 votes
If members are not using the Forums, which are designed for member-to-member queries, which are archived automatically and can later be searched, then there’s no rational to implement an alternative system or service.
Members now have access to all ASDWA surveys via the website, although this is only a temporary solution.
Is there a benefit in converting "usernames" to "email addresses"? Given that authentication to some ASDWA-related sites is associated with a user's email address, is there a benefit to configuring ASDWA.org to do the same. At the moment, users cannot change their own usernames without causing login issues, so it could be anything. Email address would be easier to remember. Users could create a single "ASDWA password' that they used for all ASDWA-sites. Users might even be more sensitive to keeping their email information up-to-date, as it is connected to login.2 votes
We’ve flipped the switch!
Most, if not all, of the dynamic information on ASDWA.org should be available via RSS. This is especially true of the "News and Events" feed on the ASDWA homepage and in Community/Committee sections of the site that have a "Recent Uploads" section. Folks should be able to receive some form of notification when information on the site changes [document uploads, page updates, new sections are created, events are added, etc].2 votes
