Updates, Discussion, and Tid-Bits About Your Friendly Campus Portal
Thursday, February 19, 2009
The myHome Team would like to officially announce the release of myHome version 1.2.
We've listened to your feedback, and some much requested portlet additions and changes make this release a must see. The modified IC Mail portlet, for example, now lets you quickly view email messages by clicking on them--a much requested feature--in addition to some nice aesthetic changes.
Our first community portlets have finally arrived! Please welcome the Dining Services: Hours and Library: Databases portlets by adding them to one of your myHome tabs. Keep the Dining Services location hours close at hand with the Dining Services: Hours portlet, and access the Library's top databases by subject with one-click, no-login availability.
Adding the new community portlets is easy. Access the "Add Content" panel by clicking the "Add Content" button in the dark gray bar at the top of myHome. The new portlets are mixed with others by default, but by clicking the "Community" toggle, you can see the new community portlets on their own. Finally, drag one of the icons down to the desired location on one of your tabs and the portlet will automatically be added.
We're so proud of this release and are anxious to hear your reactions. Keep the feedback rolling in with The myHome Portlet on your "Home" tab.
