We've booked a Site Builder training in Davis on August 7, 2013. This will be an introduction to the system, but we will also cover new design features and social media integration. The Davis training classes fill up very quickly, so don't delay if you are interested!
Please note: the training is for ANR personnel. If you are a volunteer or non-ANR UC staff, please contact Dave Krause to be placed on our waiting list.
After serving the division for five years, Alex Zangeneh-Azam is leaving the Web Action Team. Alex has had his hand in the design of just about every web application created or refreshed since he arrived. He's also been our main customer service support person for Site Builder, Surveys, Blogs, Collaborative Tools and most recently, Adobe Connect.
Alex's cool temperament has earned him a great deal of praise over the years, and his departure will be felt by all of those he has assisted.
If you'd like to send Alex a note, his last day will be February 22, 2013. After that, he will be moving to his new PROGRAMMING position at UC Davis. After stewing in the web cave for the past five years, Alex has finally morphed...

When there are many authors sorting has been made easy with drag and dropping the author to the proper location. of course the arrows are always available if needed.
Here you can see an Author being edited. Everything can be edited to suit the need.

The ability to download ANR Blog Stats to Excel has been added to the ANR Blogs. The "Excel Download" link will download the stats from the page you are currently looking at. When viewing Blog stats and select "Excel Download". The stats downloaded will be the same as currently being viewed. This allows you to download the stats as you see them and as needed.
I know many have been wanting this ability. So I hope that you find this helpful!
