If you’re a ‘regular’ visitor to ACESCentral, you’re probably noticing a big change.
We’ve launched this new design based on user requests and hope you find it an enjoyable user experience. The biggest ask we heard from members in the ACES Community was to make non-discussion information and links more readily available. The original ACESCentral was launched as a discussion forum because we needed a way to provide discussion and help for people trying to use ACES.
We’ve now got thousands of users and posts and a robust community including ACES Mentors and others helping each other solve workflow issues. But a lot of the basic information and links from “What is ACES?” to “Where do I find the “Quick Start Guides” or “Where is that Virtual Working Group Home Page” gradually became buried somewhere deep in the posts.
Discussion Forum This new design keeps the existing Discussion Forum intact, and you’ll find that in the “Community” section of the top right nav.
Virtual Working Group Links In addition, the Virtual Working Group home and the individual VWG Document Pages are all available from the top nav as well!
New: ACES Master Calendar We’ve added a live calendar in the Calendar tab that details all VWG meetings, as well as Webinars, Meetings and Events of interest to the ACES Community. Instructions on how to subscribe to the feeds for these calendars (individually or all) is located on the left side of the calendar.
NEW: Knowledge Base We’ve also added a Knowledge Base with articles curated from the many informative posts and responses in the forum.
We will continue to add features and content. Some will reformatted from the existing forum and some will be new. During this launch phase, all content on the original discussion forum will remain. After everyone’s comfortable, we’ll begin to clean up some of the non-discussion content to simplify and enhance enjoyment of the forums.
