Don't forget to add helpful blog tags to your blog posts! Blog tags are a useful way to group related posts and quickly tell reader what a post is about. Blog tags are also useful for filtering and searching through your blog. To add a tag to you blog, type in your tag to the “Add Tags” box above the Save and Review button at the bottom of the page.
On Site Builder you can filter blog posts by tags to better direct which blogs show up. To do this select your blog asset and click “Edit Blog”. On the Page Asset Editor page find “Filter Posts By Tag(s)” and add your tags. Be sure to check for spelling errors!
Missing notifications about your Site Builder site? It may be that those helpful notifications are being sent to an old or out of date webmaster email! Be sure to update the webmasters information for your sites. Make sure that the information is correct and that the person will respond to the actions that generated the emails. Without a webmaster, calendar sharing requests and other important requests may go unheeded.
Another best practice is to keep the responsible party for your site updated. The responsible party for your site is a unit director or ANR academic responsible for your websites content.

Check this box and save your options. Your survey should see a drastic reduction in SPAM from here on...

We've completed a change to Collaborative Tools that should improve email delivery for the system. Email service providers like Yahoo and Gmail use the DMARC specification to deter the amount of spam delivered to users. In recent weeks, we've seen more emails being flagged as spam or completely rejected.
Historically, we've sent emails from the system with the original sender's email in the "from" field. Therefore, if someone with the address firstname.lastname@example.org sent an email using the VMS, we would send it from email@example.com. If the email goes to other users with Yahoo accounts, it will likely be rejected because Yahoo can tell that the original email did not come...
Recently, the ANR survey tool was optimized to better handle surveys with a large number of responses. Previously, the results page would slow down as more responses were added and would strain our servers. Thanks to Bryon Noel, the results page and Excel document download are now much more responsive. The results that can also now be displayed up to 500 responses per page.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked through these issues!
