Our First Community Portlets Arriving Shortly

Posted by myHome Team on Monday, January 19, 2009

We hope you had a wonderful, relaxing, and productive winter break. The myHome team took some time off to recoup, but for the past few weeks we've been busy readying the next myHome update.

Some new portlets are coming down the pipeline, including our first Community portlets. The Library and Dining Services are starting us off with the upcoming release of two new portlets: Library Database and Dining Services Hours. First, the Library Database portlet will provide no-login access to the top databases per subject as well as contact information for that subject's Library liaison. And second, the Dining Services Hours portlet will display the general hours for Dining Services locations around campus.

We're very excited to have these first few Community members on board and can't wait to get the rest of campus involved. Around the time these new portlets are released, a new Web Profile Manager module will be made available to most departments, allowing users to create new myHome portlets and tabs. More details coming soon.

Finally, there's a rumor going around there might even be a TCAT portlet coming online in the near future.

Good luck with the beginning of this new semester!
