Update

ATSU Guides transition complete

Our ATSU Guides transition from version 1 to version 2, apart from a couple of minor glitches, went smoothly. Most of the major features are now in place. Recent additions include the Statistics and a couple of new Widgets, including a Search Box, and the ability to embed individual boxes, Guide pages, or even entire Guides into another Guide — or any website, for that matter.

The new feature that we have had the most comment on has been new format of the boxes. With version 1, you'll remember, each box you created was dedicated to a particular type of content, e.g., links, or documents, or embedded media. With version 2, you can mix 'n' match your content types, which makes for a much more efficient use of the available space. I know this is my favorite new feature. It definitely provides for more freedom in Guide layout design.

 

We are now able to embed Forms and Surveys into our ATSU Guides. This is one of the final pieces of the changeover to Guides version 2.

 

ATSU Guides tip:

We have had a few questions about how to add Editors to your Guides. This feature recently became available. To add an editor to your Guide, go to the "cog" toward the upper right when you are in editing mode. In the drop down menu, click on Guide Editors. Click on the search box, and a list of Guides accounts holders will drop down. If the person you are adding does not have an account, you can click on "Create a New Account Here" and follow the prompts. The new editor will be able to edit only the Guide to which they have been added.
