Document Library is Live!

Tonight we released a number of enhancements and minor tweaks. Along with the normal changes this release included two updates of significance.

One major feature released tonight was the Document Library. This feature allows communities to create folders to store and share documents related to the community. The possibilities are limitless but most communities will likely store documents such as their covenants and bylaws, minutes of the Board of Directors and other committee meetings, as well as archives of their old paper newsletters from before they joined

Other possible uses would be to store vendor contracts, budget worksheets and monthly financials or to serve as a central place to store all of the flyers that used to be taped to mailboxes and light poles. Really the only limit is your imagination. Let us know what you come up with!

We also made some significant changes that should ensure more relevant advertisements are displayed. Prior to tonight Google was providing general ads for many pages. Moving forward we are more heavily weighting items like the title of a news post or name of an event or group. This should improve the context and thus the relevancy of the ads. Feel free to let us know if you think it helps.

Thanks and we will see you ‘round the neighborhood!
