Blog Post created by timothy_hales-esristaff Employee on Oct 26, 2015

We are working to implement a new feature for GeoNet called News. With this new feature comes several changes to the Navigation Bar and the Inbox/Activity Page.

 

Navigation Bar

    1. News added (more information below)
    2. Map Removed (Feedback and surveys indicated Map provided little value)
    3. Single click to Inbox
    4. Profile Drop Down
      1. Your Content
      2. Your Places

News Page

News separates the "Inbox" from the "Activity". Inbox would include Inbox, Actions, and Moderation. The News page would include Activity, Recent Activity, Top & Trending Activity, and Custom Streams.

 

Community News is a stream of information about the community. To start this would be blogs from GeoNet Help and the community manager. There are also two areas that we can customize to provide information and helpful links. What information would be helpful to you in these ares these areas?

This new feature is still being finalized, but any feedback you may have would be helpful to developing this new area of the community. Thank you!
